I would pick up these number stations on my 'walkie talkie' as a kid. I would stand outside and tune into anything that wasn't static. I would spend most of the time listening to truckies on their c.b radios. Some times I would pick up a lady's voice repeating numbers, like a recording. I had no idea what it was, so I just ignored it. It was like "1...3...6...4....8...3...2...end" repeated. She had an Australia accent (I live in Australia) and I could only pick the signal up sometimes. This was all about 15 years ago. Could there be government spies in Australia too?
I had more fun with 1 walkie talkie than 2 of them

I have a transcript of the in-depth report on numbered stations that NPR broadcast several years ago and as soon as I find it I will post more information.
Spectrographic analysis of the signals has revealed that modulated data bursts are sometimes contained within the transmissions, and sub-audible noises are a regular occurrence.
