E10 Still QRT

As April begins (and this is no April Fool), the presumed Israeli Phonetic Alphabet Station (ENIGMA E10) still has not been heard since 0130 UTC on March first. A month later, it would appear that an operation which once used at least 100 frequencies and 22 call signs is still off the air.

While the timing remains interesting, there is still nothing known on why this happened, or whether the broadcasts will ever come back. There may never be.

Much more in the June column.
