Null format:

661 661 661 000
3-figure transmission ID  
Repeated for 2 minutes

Traffic format:

Preamble Message Outro

3-figure transmission ID Amount of messages in the transmission 3- or 4-figure group, purpose unknown Amount of 5-figure groups in the message 5-figure single groups  
Repeated for 2 minutes Repeated twice    

If more than one message is to be sent, the amount of messages in the preamble is greater than "1", and, at the end of each message, instead of "000 000", the transmission ID and the amount of messages are spoken again, repeated for one minute, then the standard message procedure follows for the next message.

V07 voice samples are distorted, resulting in difficulty in differing 3's and 6's.

Operation habits

V07 operates in regular schedules of three identical transmissions, spaced 20 minutes apart. The schedules usually start at either the full hour or 10 minutes later, but can start any 10-minute interval within an hour. The third transmission does not take place if a null message was transmitted. The frequencies of the subsequent repeats always descend.

The transmission ID and the frequencies used for the three transmissions are related. Putting together the hundredths digits from each frequency used for the transmissions, starting from the first, gives the ID.

V07 only runs one schedule - on Sunday, with the first transmission between 01:00 and 07:00 UTC, depending on the time of the year (see schedule). It is transmitted out of Far Eastern Russia (Kamchatka Peninsula?) and likely beamed at Latin America.

History

V07 was first noted as early as 1995, initially using a male voice. Initially it was targeted to Europe, with schedules on Monday/Friday starting at 20:00, and Tuesday/Thursday at 06:00 as of 1999.[1] On 6 February 2001, V07 gained its long-standing female voice; at the same time the voice of its sister station E07 changed as well.[2]

The emission mode at the time was full AM with two sidebands (A3E), with the voice increased in pitch and tempo by 10%, typical for this agency's AM transmissions.

In 2002, a schedule on Tuesday and Thursday at 06:00/20/40 was established[3], which remained V07's one and only schedule. In 2006 it ceased, rendering V07 a possibly defunct station.

In 2011, V07 appeared on a new schedule. Note that V07 is now using USB mode.

On 27 March 2012, V07 made two appearances in Europe at 07:10 and 07:30, respectively, with a different voice and a 30-group message. However, it was not heard on this schedule ever since.

On 21 June 2017, a test transmission of V07 was sent on 10256 kHz[4], featuring a new voice and speed. Following this test, this new voice and speed started being used on the usual Sunday schedule on 2 July 2017. The schedule also changed to slightly different frequencies. In August and September, it turned out that the schedule also reorganized its time slots.
