AGENTURA WEB SITE
Another interesting document on the web site is titled "Russian Views On Electronic and Information Warfare". This 35 page publication indicates Russian intentions of shifting to science-intensive systems and away from material-intensive systems.
The third document I downloaded was a six page report "Russia's Special Operations Forces" written by a former colonel in the GRU (Soviet Military Intelligence). Although somewhat brief, the comments regarding various units are quite informative.
The final download was a 32 page very comprehensive treatment of the "Interception Capabilities 2000" mainly as applies to the SIGINT organizations of UK, USA, Canada, New Zealand, and Australia. The Russian FAPSI is mentioned and it is indicated as having 54,000 employees.
NSA WEB SITE
As I have mentioned previously, when I travel to a site away from home, I like to check out the beacons I can hear at the various travel sites I visit. Attending the Dayton Hamvention afforded me the opportunity to check out beacons hearable from the Motel site which was a little South of the Hamvention site. My list is presented as the May loggings.
