E10 was ran by Israeli Mossad. Last heard on 1 March 2011[1].

Null format:

EZI 2
3-letter ID  
Repeated for 3 minutes

Digit "1" instead of "2" indicated test transmissions. There also were transmissions with digit "3", but the purpose of these is unknown.

Traffic format:

Preamble Message Repeat Outro
YHF Message Group 91 Text MDMGI QJBWU RSFFT ... POIXL End of message Repeat Message Group 91 Text MDMGI QJBWU RSFFT ... POIXL End of message End of transmission
3-letter ID   Amount of 5-letter groups in the message   5-letter single groups       Amount of 5-letter groups in the message   5-letter single groups    
Repeated for 3 minutes Repeated twice Repeated twice Repeated twice     Repeated twice Repeated twice Repeated twice Repeated twice      

The ID's and message groups were spoken using the NATO phonetic alphabet.

If more than one message was to be transmitted, the repetitions of the ID would have been followed by the amount of messages, spoken as "# messages". Each message would have been transmitted one after another, separated with "End of message", and only repeated altogether at the end.

At its height E10 transmitted 24 hours a day, and was directed at many different regions, with the following ID's being noted regularly: ART, EZI, FTJ, JSR, KPA, PCD, SYN, ULX, VLB, YHF[2], while the ID's CIO and MIW were noted with messages much less regularly[2]. E10 also had a share of irregular ID's that never carried any traffic: ABC, BAY, FDU, GBZ, HNC, NDP, OEM, ROV, TMS, ZWL[2].

Despite the fact that E10 had daily schedules, it sent the same message for several days in row before changing it.
