Typical scheduling

S06 and its voice counterparts' schedules are scarce, because most regular traffic from the agency operating it is now digital (F06, F01). However, it is common to hear unscheduled S06 transmissions, which also adhere to the rules described here.

Typically S06 transmits on the hour or at the half hour, but may also start at other times within an hour. The transmission is often repeated an hour later, or less commonly 30 minutes later, on a frequency that is either higher or lower by 1-3 MHz than the one on which the previous broadcast was made. In case traffic was sent, the two transmissions are often repeated also the next day at the same times and on the same frequencies.

The schedule ID may either:

  • Stay the same all year long and not change
  • Stay the same all year long and change yearly

10-15 minutes before a transmission, a several minutes long 1200 Hz test tone is emitted, followed by the ID of the upcoming transmission given once.
