I think it’s been a while since I blogged about numbers stations. To be honest it’s probably best not to.
But, via Murky, I’ve found another page of recordings of numbers stations. My eyes still water at the spookiness of it all. Considering how important they presumably are, I find it amusing that so many of them seem so amateurish (although I guess it’s mostly the interesting ones that end up on the internet).
What I still find interesting about numbers stations is that (according to the Wikipedia article at least) their use has increased since the early 1990s. And if they want to keep it all inconspicuous (as you would presume they do), why do they have weird things like ice cream van melodies, and why are the voices always strange?
Update: Nick has more.
Follow the links that Collie posted in the comments; there is some very interesting stuff around. This is particularly strange.
