We had a couple Navy Intelligence reservists in our local Ham Radio Club. It was pretty widely known that much of the "stuff" heard on number stations was meaningless to those who didn't know when to start and stop listening. The key was timing.
I was an active ham radio operator during the time of the Soviet/US "Cold War." A few number stations operated within the bands allocated to ham radio.
This is not a good thing.

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 thought it went active just before the annexation of Crimea. If it has gone silent then that is a good thing, no?
