One of the several numbers stations I monitor from time to time is the Spanish language V07. While V07 is in Spanish the source is most likely Russian. The source might be in Asiatic Russia from RFDF but no one that I know of is quite sure. In the past V07 has been tied to European transmissions, but those signals were dificult to receive in California, these recent V07 signals have been very strong in California. My assumption is that V07 changed locations, or possibly opened another source.

I post periodic updates on this station to both the Enigma 2000 group and to the UDXF Utilities monitoring group. The following is my update posted March 04, 2012, to both of those groups. As part of these updates I normally produce a chart of past performance to use for future transmission predictions.

V07 remains active and well heard on the west coast of the US in its Sunday morning schedule. It is still in the 0100/0120/0140 time period for the 6th month in a row, with some interesting frequency trends. In December 2011 I predicted that the station would stay in the 0100/0120/0140 time slots until the end of March and change to 0300/0320/0340 in April. The first transmissions of March are still in the 0100 pattern, so it looks like the first part of that prediction was correct, lets see what happens in April.

It appears that in March V07 has returned to the 18074/15874/14374 frequency set it used in October and November of 2011.

The chart of trends, times, and frequencies used for 2011 and 2012 (up to March 4, 2012) is here:

On February 28, 2012, (Tuesday morning) at 0120 UTC on 13903 kHz I ran into a CW station for the last few characters. It looked like it was probably M12 with a null message and the bearing was the same as the V07 bearing on Sunday mornings. The November 20, 2011, M12 in the V07 times slot/frequency that I reported several months ago has always made me assume there was an M12 transmission associated with this source, but I have never found it. It is possible the Tuesday morning schedule M12 is the one I am looking for.
