First heard in 2017, this station serves the Western Military District of Russia and operates without a channel marker. The callsigns of recipients change during the year along with its frequencies, however unlike on the Vyezha channel, they also change after every year. There have been instances of more than one callsign for a given season and different callsigns used on the day and night frequencies. It relays Monolyth messages sent on the Vyezha channel, usually 2-3 minutes after the innitial transmission. The messages have the same contents, although they are adressed to different callsigns.

The messages are transmitted simoutaneously on a voice and morse channel. Voice broadcasts are preceeded by a test tone or test count, while morse transmissions usually start with a series of the letter V repeated. Monolyth messages transmitted on this channel have either one, two or sometimes three 4-digit number groups per codeword, which makes it different from other networks, which usually have two groups per codeword only.  Unlike its counterpart stations, this channel doesn't transmit test messages using voice (though occasional test counts are noted). The morse channel often sends radiograms, network checks and Z-commands, which aren't transmitted in voice.

Radiograms transmitted via morse on this network are unique, as they contain two groups of three letters, each starting with the letter Z. They are included in the group count in the header of the message. Often the letters, out of which the radiograms are composed, are rarely seen in radiograms of other networks (for example: Ь, Й or Э).

On this station the Monolyth messages are read first in full without phonetical spelling, and then once again with spelling and with each digit read separately, as opposed to other stations which read them as whole numbers. The 5-digit group in Monolyth messages in voice is also often read in a 3+2 digits pattern ("303+76"), instead of the usual 2+3 ("30+376").
