John, Markus, thanks both.

I had read the ZEVS article but not the Ground_dipole one.

The former was originated by someone who seems to be a Russian electrical engineer, so I guess that he's likely to be a reasonably reliable source, though we still don't seem to have a concrete primary source - unless there is something buried in the Russian language references in the articles.
and the Ground_dipole article appears to confirm that it is in fact
called Zeus.
Interesting to note the use of the name of a God in what was an atheist
country!

> Is the name in fact Zeus and we've lost something in the Transliteration?

Yes. At least according to Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ground_dipole
VLF engineers seem to have a hang for BIG (nick)names - Goliath, Alpha &
Omega, Zeus...
