Clarification for Soviet Baudot article

In my article on Soviet multichannel radio teletype I attributed the following statement to  Roeder ,head of Group VI (interception) of the Army Signals Intelligence Agency : ‘’that interception of Soviet Baudot started in the Summer of 1943 with only three sets and gradually increased.In the summer of 1944 a new type of receiver was introduced.’’

This statement gives the impression that interception of Baudot traffic by the German Army started in Summer 1943.That however is not correct.

During 1942 Feste 7 (Fixed Intercept Station) located in Kiev was responsible for intercepting Soviet teleprinter traffic.
