Report #100 06/01/14
Last month I mentioned the intercept installations built by the Russians for the Sandinistas in the early 1980s. Russia is turning to Nicaragua to increase Russian presence in the Western Hemisphere. RIA Novosti on 26 Feb stated Russia wanted to establish naval bases in Nicaragua, Cuba and Venezuela. On April 1 RIA Novosti indicated Russia wanted to set up a network of stations in Nicaragua for monitoring Russia's Global Navigation satellites. Perhaps the four intercept sites in Nicaragua will serve that purpose plus replace the loss of the intercept facilities the Russians formerly had in Cuba.
MORGAN COUNTY, WEST VIRGINIA
The County Commission voted to upgrade the 911 radio system. Present emergency radio coverage in the county is approximately 60%. The recent vote could increase that figure to 95% coverage and improve responses to emergency communications.

ENIGMA M08a is
Cuban cut numbers in CW.
