Rare Voice Traffic on the Pip!

A listener named Marco reports that he heard the 3756 kHz Russian marker known as The Pip stop for voice traffic on May 3rd. A female spoke for about two minutes in a Slavic language before the marker restarted.

Voice on The Pip has been heard before, though not very often.  The origin is suspected to be military. ENIGMA2000 reclassified the station from XT to S30 on the basis of intercepts like this.
