Scanning Moscow’s Traffic Cops
Courtesy of Sergey the Tweeker

We’re happy to introduce a new column in which we publish Moscow’s raw radio communications, courtesy of a Russian amateur radio enthusiast. It isn’t important how we know him, what is important is that Sergei doesn’t sleep much and gets out of his house even less. That leaves him plenty of time to use the police scanner he rigged up in his 8th story apartment to eavesdrop on everyone below. He can get a clear read on most of Moscow’s northern sector, from the Garden Ring all the way out to the MKAD, and can intercept everything short of encrypted FSB channels. This issue, Sergei gives eXile readers a peek into the secret conversations of Moscow’s traffic police, the notorious "GAIshniki." And boy, ain’t it fun being a man in blue! It’s just like in Super Gaishniki, that new Russian TV show: explosions, chicks and high-speed chases. Plus, the sweet fat bribe at the end of the day.

Technical Notes:

The following transmissions, picked up roughly a month apart, are between dispatchers at a GAI command center named "Irkutsk" and the various patrol cars assigned to it. Four digit numbers usually (e.g. "Zero Zero Four Seven") correspond to patrol cars, while two digit (e.g. "Zero Zero") refer to particular dispatchers.
