A lot of ships on the move

Updated: Oct 25, 2021

5222khz, 5566khz, 8600khz, 10519khz, and call signs for everything from MRTP20 to Oliver Hazard Perry frigates. Are they all going to Port Said East?

19 October / A partial explanation for the activity: ENS Alexandria has been training with the Greek Navy. This was probably call sign سائر . ENS Taba has been training with the US Navy in the Red Sea. This was probably either call sign عشري or فارو . ENS Al Zafer F951 has been training with the Spanish Navy. This ship dates to the 1970's and we weren't sure it was still active. Here is a picture showing the SY-1 missile launchers that make this ship so recognizable.

ENS Tahya Misr was also training with the French Navy on 15 October and we think مرسل was the call sign.

21 October / No party at Port Said but they put on a show at Ras El Tin Base to welcome back the ships from "combat missions".
