V02a is operated by Cuban Intelligence Directorate (DGI). V02a replaced V02 on 1 January 1997.
V02a always sends three fixed-length messages of 150 groups each. Each transmission is 42 minutes in length. Format:
|Preamble||Message #1||Message #2||Message #3||Outro|
|Atención 33312 41082 05572||33312||34188 51181 01831 ...||41082||46909 04343 89535 ...||05572||78905 37216 54849 ...||Final|
|Three 5-figure message headers||First message header||Fixed-length message of 150 5-figure single groups, with an extended pause every 5||Second message header||Fixed-length message of 150 5-figure single groups, with an extended pause every 5||Third message header||Fixed-length message of 150 5-figure single groups, with an extended pause every 5|
|Repeated for 3 minutes||Repeated 5 times||Repeated 5 times||Repeated 5 times||Repeated 3 times|
In the headers, the first 4 figures comprise the message ID, and the last figure is either 1 or 2.
V02a, along with M08a, was involved in the case of the Cuban Five.
Up until late 2012, when HM01 started operation, V02a operated a large amount of schedules using AM (A3E) mode. However, since then, V02a transmissions are rare. Usually once, sometimes twice a month, on Tuesday and/or Thursday, it replaces M08a, in LSB (J3E) mode.
V02a uses the same transmitters as Radio Havana Cuba, and a computer running Windows XP is used to feed the audio of the transmissions.
