There were two earth directed cme's scheduled to hit yesterday and today. CME's tend to play havoc with radio and electronic signals.
The dead man switch theory does not work for me. There are many different ways the signal could stop or be blocked. To place the fate of the world on
the guarantee a radio signal will be heard seems like real bad planning.
I was thinking the same thing, not to mention, I'm not sure why Russia would need to communicate with their nukes via number station. Unless the
implication is that Russia has stored nukes around the world with local cells operating, which detonate based on number station instruction. I'll
leave it up to you to decide whether it's possible to have nukes hidden all over another nuclear power without them knowing about it, and whether
Russia would see any purpose in hiding nukes all over, something if discovered, would be directly tied to Russia, no other nation on earth would have
the ability to do such a thing.
The US operates number stations as well, and again I'm not sure why they would be needed to communicate about nuke launches.
The most likely purpose of the number stations still seems to be coded messages to field operatives, going silent for a period could simply be some
sort of indicator "continue previous actions" or something like that without having to actually communicate anything. Basically, "if you don't
hear from us, just keep doing what you're" or alternatively "put plan into action when you stop receiving the signal" although as another member
pointed out such a thing would be very unreliable, as any number of things could stop the signal, and it seems like incredibly sloppy work to allow
agents to execute plans based on possible random electronic issues.
Could also be that whatever time period went silent was a time period dedicated to a particular cell that had been destroyed or otherwise is no longer
in operation so nothing was broadcast.
