Two short E10 logs

The numbers station E10 (as called by Number fans of Enigma2000 group) is one of the most common oddity noted outside the usual shortwave broadcast bands. Here is a sample message, as logged today on 7918 kHz // 5820 kHz at 1130z:

YHF m g20 t
KEBPM RDPIM IFIXI RPXQZ ZBPBC SKWCY OZOID KHAIS RGBAD PQHWO
VOYVU CUHVQ GDLOR JJCFJ DCKXF NPZQG SDRJF LWVRS JBETN LWOIN
eom eot

Sound clip!
Very nice and noise-free signal!

At 1230z, on the same frequency, a little surprise: YHF3! An unusual call! When E10 has a message, Agent's call is repeated. If no message, the number "2" follows Agent's call instead: "YHF2". Let's see what will happen at 1900z 3840 kHz // 2844 kHz !

Have you noticed how the intonation changes to a falling tone for the last letter in each group? It's not as pronounced as with the Lincolnshire Poacher, but is definitely there.

For an automated voice system to bother with intonation shows high attention to detail and a well-developed infrastructure. Is it just E3 and E10 who do it?
