The following are transcripts of two telephone calls Ronald W. Pelton allegedly placed to Soviet officials before his visit to the Soviet embassy here on Jan. 15. The government, which was wiretapping an undisclosed location under the authority of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, has said it "incidentally overheard" Pelton's voice, but was not able to identify the caller as Pelton until last October. The "second person" in the Jan. 15 transcript has been identified by the government as Vitaly S. Yurchenko, the turnabout Soviet defector who helped lead authorities to Pelton last fall. The Pelton jury yesterday heard the wiretap tapes over headphones. The government deleted references that would have identified the location of the wiretap in the transcripts it released.
