  1. Near the town of Novopriozerskoye sh. Leningradskaya oblast', Russia; while another broadcasts the same signal from unnamed Rd, Moskovskaya oblast', Russia 143301.  

History

Sometime in 1982 "The Buzzer " began broadcasting at a frequency of 4625 kHz. It was a repeating 2 second pip, changing to a buzzer in the early 1990's.  It changed to a higher tone with longer duration on 16 January 2003; approximately 20 tones per minute where reported.  It has since reverted to the previous tone pattern.  

The broadcast is a monotonous buzzing tone, repeating at a rate of approximately 25 tones per minute, for 24 hours per day.  This transmitted using AM with a suppressed lower sideband (R3E), but it has also used double-sideband AM
