Radiograms
Animation

Radiogram is a general term for written messages sent over radio, regardless of whether they are in clear, encoded, or encrypted. If the message has a non-ordinary urgency level, it appears after the preamble. The origin callsign, if any, is included after the urgency level, preceded by “FM” (in Morse) or “ot” (in voice). The destination callsigns, if any, are included after the origin callsign, preceded by “FOR” (in Morse) or “dlya” in voice. In 5-digit group messages, the last group is the day of the month (first 2 digits), followed by the group count, excluding this group (last 3 digits).

Message format
All branches of the Russian Armed Forces use common formats for voice and Morse code radio messages.
