RED ARMY RADIOTELEGRAPH SIMULATOR


= US Navy =





QRA PREFIX: USS




BACKGROUND:


USN was one of the pioneers in introducing Wireless Telegraphy, so it's usage and procedures changed greatly through various periods. W/T was used very widely
to 1950's in all networks when RATT was introduced, but CW was still used in early 1990's for broadcasts etc..

USN was huge organisation, it had a lot of ships and all were well fitted with radio equipment, hundreds of thousands radiotelegraphists were trained.
It was typical to carry as many as 30 radiooperators on big warship during 2WW and even 3 radiorooms were in use for various activities: copying brodcasts, operational watch, SIGINT, HF DF, R/T, etc... After 2WW a lot of ships were decomissioned but still USN had 948 ships.


CALLSIGNS:


Both ship's open and closed callsigns were used, closed c/s always on broadcasts, often on nets, etc... Generally open callsigns were used rather rarely and mainly
for navigational, crew messages, press reports, etc. purposes. This is not so true in earlier periods because communication security standards were much lower before 2WW. During 2WW and Cold War ships usually were very rarely in the air. Broadcast were used widely.

This callsign scheme was used in 1940's:

N$$coast stations(open callsign)
N$$$ships(open callsign)
N$$$$air ships(open callsign)
B$$$-F$$$ships(closed callsign)
H$$$-J$$$ships(closed callsign)
L$$$ships(closed callsign)
O$$$-P$$$ships(closed callsign)
R$$$-V$$$ships(closed callsign)
X$$$-Z$$$ships(closed callsign)
A#$-P#$all(closed callsign)
R#$-Y#$all(closed callsign)
Z#$all (temporary assigment)(closed callsign)
N###$air ships(open callsign)
$$#$air ships(closed callsign)


$ - LATIN LETTER
# - DIGIT 0-9


In 1958 callsign system for tactical callsigns little bit changed [11] :


$##$ ships
$### ships
##$$ ships
##$# ships
#$#$ ships
#$## ships
#$$$ ships
#$$# ships
$$#$ aircrafts or air ships
$$## aircrafts or air ships
$#$#task forces
$#$$task forces


$ - LATIN LETTER
# - DIGIT 0-9


During Cold War this scheme little bit changed, since NATO allies national callsigns were not used as closed c/s, but please remember that ITU table has changed
through years many times. Exact callsigns table can be found in ACP publications for given period.

Almost all closed callsigns are assigned type, exluding few found in japanese SIGINT materials (USS Arizona, etc). Since callsigns often changed on 24 hour basis
it is not so important to use real, logged callsigns here, but of course it is desirable from historical point of view (if I found it in archives). More important is to show real callsign scheme and procedures of given organisation.

Collective callsigns widely used, also for TF (Task Force) predefined groups (exercises, military operations).


FREQS:


Before and during WW2 low freqs were widely used (for example band 510-550 kHz was reserved for Navy only).
A lot of LF and VLF installations were used.
Also during WW2 amateur bands were used (amateurs were forced to QRT).
Activy both on and off marine bands (various band plans before 1972).
So called series were widely used, basic frequency and its 3 or 4 harmonics.


OP RMKS:


Pre WW2 wide usage of V instead DE posign, postwar DE used only. There was at least 2 sets of Z codes other than commercial or later NATO Z codes.
Closed callsigns for brodcasts and historical (really heard) simulated. Fox broadcasts were at speed 18 WPM, other highest operating speeds never
exceeded 25 WPM.


SIMULATION:


Various nets and services are simulated:
  • Fleet Broadcasts
  • Ship to Shore Networks (simplex)
  • Shore to Ship (duplex)
  • Navigational Traffic (Coastal)
  • Navigational Traffic (Ship)
  • Meteo Traffic (Coastal)
  • Meteo Traffic (Ship)
  • Naval Aero Traffic
  • Coastal Networks
  • Coastal Time Service
  • Distress Naval Aero Traffic
  • Enemy Sight Report
  • Naval DF Neworks


  • etc...

    Because operational procedures changed greatly over periods, two main ships datatabases were created:
  • old ships (comissioned before 1945)
  • new ships (comissioned after 1945)


  • Period before 1920s is not covered at all, since it was spark W/T operations only and procedures were even more 'ancient'. (Some spark stations are on the air
    because some of them existed in 1920s and later, but RARS generally is focused on 'modern' telegraphy times, this mean non damped waves generation).
    US Coast Guard is not covered in this documentation, although in same periods same facilities/services intercommunication with Navy was noted.

    COAST STATIONS:


    US Coast Guard stations are not included here, although in same periods same intercommunication with USN was noted.

    SERVICES:
    FOX was common codename for broadcasts in the USN (Method F). Not all FOX implemented yet.
    NAS - Naval Air Station.
    USMC - US Marine Corps.
    FLEETWAVE_975 - in early 1920s wave 975 m was common listerning wave (in preparation).
    LF2VSL - LF communication with vessels (static, in development)
    POLAR_COM - Polar Stations Communication (static)
    PG - station opened for public correspondence
    PX_ANM - Press Exchange - currently anouncements only are sent
    SHORE2SHIP - few scenarios: 5F QTC in progress (no receiver callsign is used), confirming QTC from tactical callsign, receiving QTC from open callsign or constant CQ tape.
    TIME - Time Service
    VOS (PG) - VOS traffic (station opened for public correspondence)
    WX - existing METEO broadcasts
    WX_ANM - METEO anouncements only
    All other are static calling/tuning (looking for info)
