In fact, MULTIPSK has always proven to be exceptionally good at handling low quality and low level signals, consistently beating the competition hands-down. And having such an enormous array of modes makes it a very good value and high-quality package.
Anyway, back to the Russian Navy. After the familiar "tire" and "tok" words and numbers I was familiar with from the other night, we got "peterburg" and an "AR" at the end of the message. The next message began:
"REO REO de RMP RMP QTC ........"
Here is the screenshot of this interesting ID part of the message:
Have a look at Tony's PLANESANDSTUFF BLOG blog and his Russian callsign list and you will see this is a weather warning for the Baltic Sea (REO) from Baltic Fleet HQ, Kaliningrad (RMP). I am not too sure about the QTC. Perhaps it is "message follows", "we have a message for you" from what I see on Google.
I entered the word "RABOTY" into a Latin - Cyrllic alphabet online site and then copied the Russian characters to Google language translator and it means "WORK". It is time-consuming but fascinating to a language enthusiast like myself to decipher the text in this way.
My next challenge is to move away from this mostly broadcast oriented transmission to decoding CW to and from actual ships.
