Looks like there were three sites, Chernigov, Nikolaev and Komsomolsk na Amure (UA0).
Remember handling traffic with UB5 hams and supplying media with info about Chornobyl, before afficials admitted there was anything wrong.
Proximity to Chornobyl Nuclear station was to have enough power for MW over the horizon.
