Just gone through the recordings, loads of interference last night so might have missed some. If I didn't, today has been a surprisingly quiet day. Guessing that's due to it being the weekend, but would've expected more with NK popping their SLBM.

(Side note: I need to graph the historical data against day of week.)

Another test count.
UPDATE (8:21 PM): And a Skyking...
UPDATE (8:31 PM): Another Skyking.
UPDATE (9:08 PM): Another Skyking. This seems rather unusual to have these many Skykings in the span of an hour.
UPDATE (9:15 PM): Another Skyking from Andrews, and while it's a 1x Skyking, the guy is speaking really fast.

Definitely... haven't had an EAM in the past 5 hours but we've had 4 Skykings.

Edit: Another Skyking at 0315z. Is it just me or is he sounding a little stressed?

Yknow, I don't think I've heard a 2x or higher Skyking in a loooong time. Looking back, I don't think I've heard one since I started recording comms.

I'm starting to think that old infographic might be all lies!

Perhaps. As it stands right now, it's perfectly possible that they wouldn't raise the number of Skyking repetitions for an elevated risk so as the enemy wouldn't know what was real and wasn't a test...
UPDATE (10:37 PM): All stations call from Play Ball.

And another at 0617z.

Aaaand another at 0626z.

EAM coming out now (0807z).

And at 0812z.
And 0816z.

Also, just realised that 3 calls in 08z makes this a significant observation, based on on the list in my graphing thread. Looking deeper at those stats, I've never recorded more than 2 messages in one day during this hour, and the total recorded in the last month is 6.

It's currently somewhere between 1am and 5am Sunday in the US mainland (depending on which side of the country these guys transmit from), so that just boosts the significance further.

Roll Away, Roll Away? 2x or 3x - static - with a SKYKING type authentication and "MAINSAIL Fleet Acknowledgement", also something about a code "Blue"?

What the hell is that?
