Bears Net (Russian Air Force)

AF Tupolev TU-95MS Bear



8895.0 kHz is a very interesting Russian Air Force CW frequency. The W beacons have been around for years and now UDXF monitors have found that these beacons may be related to Russian AF Tupolev TU-95MS Bear aircraft activity. 


Milcom Monitoring Post published a very interesting page about the activity on this frequency: the page can be read at russian-air-force-8895-khz-cw-w-markers

Le stazioni Radio Costiere Italiane (CRS)


Le CRS (Stazioni Radio Costiere) sono delle stazioni radio marittime poste a terra che monitorano le frequenze radio di pericolo, coordinano il traffico radio e forniscono comunicazioni nave-nave e nave-terra.

Callsigns/Stazioni e frequenze

IQX TRIESTE RADIO 2.624 kHz
ICB GENOVA RADIO 2.642 kHz
IPD CIVITAVECCHIA RADIO 1.888 kHz
IPL LIVORNO RADIO 1.925 kHz
IDC CAGLIARI RADIO 2.680 kHz
IPA ANCONA RADIO 2.656 kHz
IZN PORTO TORRES RADIO 2.719 kHz
IQP S.BENEDETTO DEL TRONTO 1.855 KHz 
(controllate a distanza da Roma Radio)


IQQ MAZARA DEL VALLO RADIO 2.600 kHz
IQH NAPOLI RADIO 2.632 kHz
IDF MESSINA RADIO 2.789 kHz
IPB BARI RADIO 2.759 kHz
IQN LAMPEDUSA RADIO 1.876 kHz
IPC CROTONE RADIO 2.663 kHz
IQA AUGUSTA RADIO 2.628 kHz
IPP PALERMO RADIO 1.852 KHz
(controllate a distanza da Palermo Radio)

La frequenza di 2182.0 KHz (frequenza di ascolto) e' costantemente monitorata per gestire le eventuali chiamate di soccorso.

IQN Lampedusa Radio

Le stazioni costiere controllano la maggior parte del traffico marittimo nel nostro paese. Fino agli anni 90 si potevano ancora trovare le console dei telegrafisti e le stazione operavano l'ascolto delle chiamate in telegrafia sui 500 khz e su numerose frequenze in onde corte. Gli ascolti su 500 KHz sono stati interrotti così come l''ascolto e le trasmissioni in telegrafia e oggi operano solo in fonia e in radiotelex. 

Vengono utilizzare grosse antenne a cono filari alte almeno venti metri per i segnali ad onde corte e  tralicci con filari accoppiate per i segnali sulla banda MF (2182 KHz e dintorni). Le antenne a cono hanno al loro interno una serie di dipoli installati nella direzione dei quattro punti cardinali e gli operatori radio possono comandarne a distanza la commutazione per avere il miglior rapporto segnale/rumore in ricezione.






Ormai la maggior parte dei servizi viene gestito attraverso sistemi informatici e l'unico presidio umano e' rimasto quello alla console radio. Rimane comunque il fascino di RomaRadio e della sua storia, che purtroppo ormai rimane solo visibile in alcune teche dove è stata allestita dagli operatori una piccola mostra che contiene cimeli del passato della stazione radio.



Palermo Radio
Dai primi giorni di Febbraio 1999 la rete di stazioni costiere italiane si è adeguata agli standard mondiali per l'utilizzo del nuovo sistema GMDSS che utilizza la chiamata selettiva per l'invio di messaggi e di richieste di soccorso.
