Manual for the reception of our broadcast messages

After having read and worked on this manual closely, you will be able to receive our broadcast messages continously. The broadcast is a especially well suited way of communication because it is fast (the message arrives at your place at the very same moment it is sent), because it is riskless (the receipient of broadcast messages cannot be located) and because it is reliable (one cannot interrupt the radio waves on their way to you-in contrast to a mail which can be intercepted). The only possibility to hinder our radio communication with you would be to jam the radio, like the "ULBRICHT'schen Friedensfreunde" do continously against westgerman radio broadcasts as they are frightened of the truth. However, even under jamming one is still able to hear our transmission as you will see in this manual.

We first list the devices and papers which you will need to receive our broadcast messages:

  1. what you have or need to get:
    • 1 radio receiver with middlewave reception, the device should further have a connector for an antenna and earth as well as a connector for a second speaker.
  2. what you will get from us:
    • 1 supplementary reception device (we call it "Converter") with belonging cable
    • 1 battery connector device (we call it the "Staff")
    • 4 frequency sticks (they are labeled in r e d with 1, 1A, 2, 2A)
    • 1 earphone with cable and bipolar plug
    • 1 reception programme with your callnumber
    • 1 conversion method
    • 1 keyband

When you now tune into our broadcast service, please go through the following

Manual

closely and perform all steps in the described order:

  1. Take the Converter with plugged Staff:

    Connect a 4.5 volts battery (as they are used for flashlights) to the cables coming from the Converter, while the red cable should connect with the positive pole of the battery (that is the short tongue), the black cable to the other pole of the battery, by plugging the flashlight-battery poles into the clamps of the red and the black cable. (If you are unable to get a 4.5V flat battery, you could take every other battery which serves 4.5V DC).

    The Converter is now ready to use.

  2. Now turn on your radio device and connect the Converter using the supplied cable in the following manner:

    1. cable plug "1" into socket "1" of the Converter all the way to the stop
      cable plug "2" to the antenna connector of your radio
      cable plug "3" in the earth of your radio

    2. Connect your radio antenna using a normal banana plug to the socket "4" of the Converter (this "normal banana plug" should, as usual, consist of a pin with a length of 2cm and a thickness of 4mm). If you listened until now without an antenna, put an about 3 to 4m long, isolated wire to which you screw named banana plug in your room to receive our service.

    3. By plugging the antenna into socket "4" of the Converter, the Converter activates itself as a supplementary reception device (do not forget to turn it off after usage, i.e. unplug the antenna from socket "4" as the battery drains uselessly otherwise).

    4. Now take your "reception programme" and choose according to it from the 4 frequency sticks (1, 1A, 2, 2A) the two ones which are listed after the reception time at which you want to receive. One of these two sticks has now to be plugged into socket "F" of the Converter (for an example, lets assume you would read the following in your "reception programme":

      " Mittwoch  2000 - 2100   1 oder 1 A  " etc.
      
      you would then have to preposition frequency sticks 1 and 1A).

       

      If you notice that reception is bad with the first used stick, swap it against the prepositioned other one (e.g.: if you wanted to listen with frequency stick 1 but it is jammed, you had to plug 1A is socket "F").

    5. Now connect the supplied earphones to the socket for a second speaker on your radio. Your radio speaker should turn off automatically. If the radio speaker cannot be turned off or a socket for a second speaker (or earphones) does not exist, you have to listen to our broadcast using the speaker. Please note that you always listen to our broadcast exactly so loud that your neighbour can in under no circumstances listen too!!!

  3. After you have all devices which you need for reception in place start to listen to our radio service (the characteristics to recognize our radio service will be listed at number 4 of this manual) and configure the reception devices in the following manner:

    1. Turn on your radio on middle wave range and tune it using the tune knob (that is the rotary knob with which you usually search and setup stations on your radios scale) to approximately 1500 kHz (200 meters).

    2. Turn the disc "D" of the Converter (with scale) until the white point points to 3.5 (instead of 3.5 you may also have to set 4, this orients on what is given in the column "Converter-Scale" in your "reception programme"; e.g. if you read "Mittwoch 2000 - 2100 1 oder 1A 3.5", you have to set 3.5 with disc "D", if its "Mittwoch 2200 - 2300 2 oder 2A 4", 4 is to be set).

    3. Start to sensitively rotate and search around 1500kHz (200 meters) using the tuning knob of your radio at the beginnig of your reception time given in the "reception programme" to schedule until you hear our broadcast station (how you recognize it will be described at number 4).

      Then use disk "D" of the Converter to adjust the volume until you can listen well (when listening with speaker set it quiet!), if neccessary make further adjustments with tuning and volume knobs of the radio to gain better audibility of our radio service station. On radios with magic eye tube this can also be used as fine tuning help.

    4. If you cannot hear our radio service station or if it is very noisy, you have to swap the frequency sticks as we described above namely if following your "reception programme"

      • you are using frequency stick 1, use 1A
      • you are using frequency stick 2, use 2A
      After frequency stick switch always repeat tuning with the tuning knob between 1400 and 1600 kHz (215 or 190 meters) as described under c).

       

    5. When searching the radio service station you also have to consider a possible inaccurate calibration of your radio. That is why you would have to search much broader around 1500 kHz (200 meters) if you cannot hear our station.

      Maybe also the polarity of the battery for the Converter is wrong, in that case you have to switch over poles and repeat the whole reception procedure.

  4. How do you listen to a message for you on our radio service?

    1. Our radio service broadcasts at the times given at your "reception programme"-among other messages-also such for y o u. Note down all transmissions which are subjected to you. You recognize your transmissions by the three-digit call number which is mentioned at the beginning of each transmission. You can find y o u r three-digit call number at the upper right corner of your "reception programme".

    2. Our radio service station broadcasts at the days and times given in your "reception programme" from the full hour on until about 5 minutes after the full hour a pause signal which is played by a flute and always consists of a repeating, monodic tones. These tones consist of two series of ascending and two series of descending tones in one octave.

      During this 5 minute span at the beginning of the full hour, namely during the flute pause signal, you have to have found our radio service station and adjusted it to be well audible so that you can record the following transmission which will contain the message for you.

    3. 5 minutes after the ufull our (i.e. when the flute pause signal stops) the announcement of our radio service starts with the subscriber list (We call it subscriber list as the various subscribers of our radio service are called with their call number and the group count of their transmissions in that list. There are no transmissions in that list yet.)

       

      In the subscriber list you will also hear so called keywords which have no meaning for you.

      We want to show you how the announcement of the subscriber list (after the flute pause signal) may sound using the following example:

              "Guten Abend! Wir beginnen mit der Durchsage unseres Rundspruches. Kennwörter: Wiese - Wiese, Schlange - Schlange, Vogel - Vogel, Eiche - Eiche", etc. (you do not need to take care for the keywords)
              "Es liegen Mitteilungen vor"(now you need to take special care)"für null acht neun - null acht neun, einsundzwanzig Gruppen - zwo eins Gruppen, eins eins sechs - eins eins sechs, achtunddreissig Gruppen - drei acht Gruppen, sieben eins sieben - sieben eins sieben, zwoundachtzig Gruppen - acht zwo Gruppen", etc
      

      [ Translation of the above

              "Good evening! We start with the announcement of our transmission. Keywords: meadow-meadow, snake-snake, bird-bird, oak-oak", etc. (you do not need to take care for the keywords)
              "There are messages"(now you need to take special care"for zero eight nine-zero eight nine, twenty-one groups-two one groups, one one six-one one six, thirty-eight groups-three eight groups, seven one seven-seven one seven, eighty-two groups-eight two groups", etc.
      

      ]

      So far the announcement of the subscriber list.

    4. As soon as the subscriber list is announced completely the announcement of the transmissions follows after a short pause.

      This could sound e.g. like the following:

            "Achtung null acht neun! Achtung null acht neun! Ihre Mitteilung besteht aus einundzwanzig Gruppen, ich wiederhole zwo eins Gruppen
            [pause]      
            95427  95427  18220  18220  66143  66143  "etc.... (until the remaining digit groups for subscriber 089 have been named completely)."Ende der Mitteilung für 089, ich wiederhole: Ende der Mitteilung für 089 
            [pause]
            Achtung 116! Achtung 116! Ihre Mittleilung besteht aus 38 Gruppen, ich wiederhole" etc.
      

      [ Translation of the above

            "Attention zero eight nine! Attention zero eight nine! Your message consists of twenty-one groups, repeat two one groups
            [pause]
            95427  95427  18220  18220  66143  66143  "etc.... (until the remaining digit groups for subscriber 089 have been named completely)."End of transmission for 089, repeat: end of transmission for 089
            [pause]
            Attention 116! Attention 116! Your message consists of 38 groups, repeat..."etc.
      

      ]

      So far the pattern for a transmission.

    5. The end of the announcement of all transmissions is advertised as following:

            "Ende des Rundspruches, ich wiederhole: Ende des Rundspruches."
      

      [ Translation of the above

            "End of transmission, repeat: end of transmission."
      

      ]

      The time until the beginning of the next full hour is filled with the flute pause signal.

    6. For the announcement of tranmissions the following should be remarked:

      the parts consisting of 5 digit groups are said in a specific way, namely gets each digit group repeated immediately. They are also pronounced in a certain rhythm (e.g. 1 2 *3* 4 *5*), that is with stress on the 3rd and 5th digit and a small pause between 3rd and 4th digit so that you can listen and note easier.

      the digits are pronounced in the following way:

      1=ains 4=vi-ärr 7=sie-ben 0=nuhl
      2=zwo 5=fün-nef 8=acht
      3=drai 6=sechs 9=noi-en

How does the decryption of the transmissions you noted work?

The messages announced for your call number are encrypted and thus only understandable by you. You perform the decryption of the messages using the "conversion method" and the "keyband" as described in the following. We show you how to proceed when decrypting a message using the following exemplar:

  1. First follows the record of a rtansmission as an example like you could have heard it on our radio service:

      "4 5 4  1 8
       4 5 4  1 8
       62421  62421  89246  89246  47689  47689  21605  21605
       92658  92658  56623  56623  52170  52170  24923  24923 
       54344  54344  77975  77975  73183  73183  99841  99841
       65823  65823  66507  66507  37152  37152  85510  85510
       24367  24367  01372  01372  "
    

    Explanation

    454 is an assumed call number, 18 he amount of groups of the following trnasmission, first noted from the subscriber list, then noted before t he actual announcement of the message. The following 5 digit groups have to be written down exactly with repeats.

  2. Write each digit group this time without repeats down again with bigger line spacing (and not more than 5 digit groups per line) on a new sheet of paper. We do the same with our exemplar, which looks like this:

       " 6 2 4 2 1  8 9 2 4 6  4 7 6 8 9  2 1 6 0 5  9 2 6 5 8
        
         5 6 6 2 3  5 2 1 7 0  2 4 9 2 3  5 4 3 4 4  7 7 9 7 5
         
         7 3 1 8 3  9 9 8 4 1  6 5 8 2 3  6 6 5 0 7  3 7 1 5 2
         
         8 5 5 1 0  2 4 3 6 7  0 1 3 7 2"
    
  3. The first digit group of the recorded transmission corresponds to the key groupwhich shows you with which digit group on your "key band" you have to start the decryption of your transmission. You find the key group on your "key band" at the beginning of a line.

    Now take your "key band" and search on it for the key group of the recorded transmission, write down the following digit groups above the groups of the noted transmission written down without repeats on the second sheet.

    In our exemplar we have assumed the following digit groups as "key band":

       "62421 35468 36535 66004 13073 17730 29632 46484 48728 44000
        65427 73515 90098 51919 08016 70353 19523 59372 18485" etc.
    

    And thats how it looks when these digit groups are transferred from the "key band" to the recorded transmission:

       (key group)
       " 6 2 4 2 1  3 5 4 6 8  3 6 5 3 5  6 6 0 0 4  1 3 0 7 3
         6 2 4 2 1  8 9 2 4 6  4 7 6 8 9  2 1 6 0 5  9 2 6 5 8
         
         1 7 7 3 0  2 9 6 3 2  4 6 4 8 4  4 8 7 2 8  4 4 0 0 0
         5 6 6 2 3  5 2 1 7 0  2 4 9 2 3  5 4 3 4 4  7 7 9 7 5
         
         6 5 4 2 7  7 3 5 1 5  9 0 0 9 8  5 1 9 1 9  0 8 0 1 6
         7 3 1 8 3  9 9 8 4 1  6 5 8 2 3  6 6 5 0 7  3 7 1 5 2
         
         7 0 3 5 3  1 9 5 2 3  5 9 3 7 2  1 8 4 8 5
         8 5 5 1 0  2 4 3 6 7  0 1 3 7 2"
    

    ("key band" not needed anymore for exemplar)

    We suggest to draw a line below each two lines of digit groups.

  4. Now subtract, beginning from the start, each digit in the second line from the digit in the first line, that subtract the bottom one from the above. If the upper digit is smaller than the one below, add 10 to the upper digit and the digit below is subtracted from the result, you calculate e.g:

    1 minus 3 is 11 minus 3 results in 8.

    Please note though that the added number 10 is not lend from anywhere and thus not reconsidered in the next calculation.

    In our exemplar that would give the following, whereas the meaning of the lines is noted at the margin:

       keyband      " 6 2 4 2 1  3 5 4 6 8  3 6 5 3 5  6 6 0 0 4  1 3 0 7 3
       transmission   6 2 4 2 1  8 9 2 4 6  4 7 6 8 9  2 1 6 0 5  9 2 6 5 8
       calc result    0 0 0 0 0  5 6 2 2 2  9 9 9 5 6  4 5 4 0 9  2 1 4 2 5
       = text
                      1 7 7 3 0  2 9 6 3 2  4 6 4 8 4  4 8 7 2 8  4 4 0 0 0
                      5 6 6 2 3  5 2 1 7 0  2 4 9 2 3  5 4 3 4 4  7 7 9 7 5
                      6 1 1 1 7  7 7 5 6 2  2 2 5 6 1  9 4 4 8 4  7 7 1 3 5
                      
                      6 5 4 2 7  7 3 5 1 5  9 0 0 9 8  5 1 9 1 9  0 8 0 1 6
                      7 3 1 8 3  9 9 8 4 1  6 5 8 2 3  6 6 5 0 7  3 7 1 5 2
                      9 2 3 4 4  8 4 7 7 4  3 5 2 7 5  9 5 4 1 2  7 1 9 6 4
                      
                      7 0 3 5 3  1 9 5 2 3  5 9 3 7 2
                      8 5 5 1 0  2 4 3 6 7  0 1 3 7 2
                      9 5 8 4 3  9 5 2 6 6  5 8 0 0 0 "
    
  5. The 3rd line created from the calculations-below the line-already forms together with its digits the text of our important message for you. You can read and understand this text as soon as you converted all digits of the 3rd line according to your "conversion method".

    We want to do this conversion according to your "conversion method" on our exemplar. To do this we extract the named 3rd line and write it down on another new sheet of paper, again with big line spacing so that two more lines can be written inbetween.

       calc result " 0 0 0 0 0  5 6 2 2 2  9 9 9 5 6  4 5 4 0 9  2 1 4 2 5
       translation               y  2 2 2  9 9 9  y    j   b  r  i e  f   y
       = message
                     6 1 1 1 7  7 7 5 6 2  2 2 5 6 1  9 4 4 8 4  7 7 1 3 5
                       1 1 1 7  7 7  y  2  2 2  y  e  r  h  a  l   t e n  ,
                     
                     9 2 3 4 4  8 4 7 7 4  3 5 2 7 5  9 5 4 1 2  7 1 9 6 4
                       i n  h   a  l  t  g    u  t  ,    w  e i  t e r s  o
                     
                     9 5 8 4 3  9 5 2 6 6  5 8 0 0 0
                        .   g   r  u  s s   .       "
    

    (the remaining three zeros are fillers)

  6. In the preceding example the message would have to be read like the following, by skipping the character "y" as long as it is for encapsulating names, numbers etc., and by simplifying the numbers and dates which have been expressed by triplets:

    "29 - Brief  17.2. erhalten, Inhalt gut, weiter so. Gruss."
    

    Explanations:

    "29" is the increasing number of the message, the sign "-" was built from the character "j" and means "paragraph, begin of text"

Finally: Good reception! Remember that this is the best and fastest connection between us. We can express or answer all wishes or questions immediately-and for you completely riskless.
