You do realize this thread has absolutely nothing to do with the Wow! signal right? I'm only talking about numbers radio stations, the Wow! signal is not one of those, unless it was an alien numbers station and I'm not trying to speculate about that.

I recently read an article about Brigadier General Steven Lovekin who worked on (SIGINT) under Eisenhower.

Dude, I didn't get the information from cracked. I saw the article AFTER I read the wiki for UVB. I didn't feel like it was necessary to duplicate sources for something I already had a better source for. I don't give a crap about the Wow! or the CBS hijacking, or the porn tv channel for kids. This thread is not concerned with any of these things. I've linked PLENTY of other reasearch done by other people. This thread wasn't an attempt to make a cracked list, they're cool but I don't care about them for this thread.

I'll say THANKS TO CRACKED for finding the same things I did. Now, if you're going to leave, do it; if not, please be constructive and quit trolling saying I'm plagerizing, because I'm not.

What if some far off Arctic base (well stocked with rations) was forgotton and some "really" old communication soldier is still up there broadcasting signals because he doesn't know the war is over. It only broadcasts out, so he has no clue and he is just following orders.

That would make for a good story, lol

Like that Japanese soldier who kept his post for 30 years in the jungle of Lu bang Island in the Philippines? True story. The dude didn't know the war was over and followed his orders until in 1974 a retired former officer relieved him of duty. He wouldn't surrender until he was ordered to. Check it out here on Wikipedia - Hiroo Onoda.

I believe that also happened during the Civil War. I don't have a link for it but I do remember reading about it back in high school.

Reminds me of the "Russian Woodpecker" actually.

The Russian Woodpecker was a notorious Soviet signal that could be heard on the shortwave radio bands worldwide between July 1976 and December 1989. It sounded like a sharp, repetitive tapping noise, at 10 Hz, giving rise to the "Woodpecker" name. The random frequency hops disrupted legitimate broadcast, amateur radio, and utility transmissions and resulted in thousands of complaints by many countries worldwide.

With all of the current political nonsense surrounding missile defence shields and Russia's vow to combat them with more of the same, I don't think it's a great leap to presume that this is just another step in their anti-balistic missile warning system.

Ok, I did some research on the dates mentioned. I searched the russian analogue of google. So on these dates:
* December 24, 1997
* September 12, 2002
some important changes in the Start program were made. It is an agreement between the russian and the american government to control the nukes.

On September 29, 2009 there was an earthquake in Samoa that even affected some of our territory, so one could imply that was some MCHS(russian analogue of FEMA) info. Why cypher it so seriously, though?

On February 21, 2006 there was an outbreak of an unknown virus in Chechnya.

Well, this doesn't really correlate, but anyway, you should try finding some info on the events that happened on these days.

After I read the title of this thread I remembered an episode of Mark Thomas comedy product that I watched 13 years ago.

Rather than explain why, here is a YouTube link.

The relevent part is almost exactly one minute into the footage, but it basically lays out everything that is known about similar number calling transmisions in the UK.

Hope this helps.

By the way, most of Mark Thomas's TV shows are on the web now, so if you like what you see, you can pretty much spend a whole night watching old shows of his.

Awesome, I'm going to do some more of this tonight when I'm done with school work. Glad someone started before me.

Wow, S&F! really wild stuff. I agree that if it is 'cold war' equipment it is still being maintained by someone.. On another note it reminds me of the movie "They Live", like a broadcast not meant to be directly heard by the ears but heard by the brain so to speak.

Many years ago, I worked in communications. From time to time we would recieve signals much like those referred to as backward music. As we thought our frequencies were secure, it seemed in our best interests to locate their source and who was sending them.
After several weeks we found out the signals were random reflections of radar beacons from our own site and some others. While I am not saying this is the source of these particular signals, it may be something to be concidered.
As to the numbers, it may be well to separate them into groups - search for prime numbers- and translate these into different coordinate locations. I would tend to believe them to be "nautical " in nature.
Hope this may be of some inspiration to those who would really like to know about their intent.

I just did go out and buy one and hey, wow, there are loads of them and they are active spy stations!

Try 11.175 MHz on USB and you will hear US Military Worldwide with their EAM's (Emergency Action Messages) which are the same one's as nuke launch codes!

Make sure the radio has a BFO and can select LSB or USB, digital is much better, they start from about £50 here in the UK!

I was tempted to post a thread about this too. I read about UVB-76 just recently on, as well as the backwards radio station. I am going to assume that since all of us wanted to post about this, it must have been from some common recent experience, likely viewing this cracked article.

lol i was reading through the whole thread to see if anyone mentioned this and if not, I was going to.

The OP also took both the backwards radio, and abit of the wording from the article.

Anyhow i'm glad to see the topic here as i'd like to know if anyone has any answers on this.

ive always read that number stations were set up in the 50's to send messages to various spies around the world. they would use a '1 time pad" encryption so that the numbers made absolutely no sense unless you had the pad to decipher them.

i have the conet project 4 cd set and its great to listen to. there are also recording of so called "jammer" station that the cia set up to search out stations transmitting and jam them with static.

i believe the stations are back in use since sometime in the 2000's when alot more undercover work is in remote areas where a shortwave radio is far easier than bringing a satellite phone set up!

that is what i have been saying all along, he's being a word thief. is a great resource for worthless information with authors that do their OWN RESEARCH. which is why i respect them. this OP took a good idea and tried to pass it off as his own. not respectable.

I bought a shortwave radio to listen to alex jones and the genesis network.
I would hear a computer generated man's voice on some frequency i found that just said numbers over and over again! I thought it might have something to do with weather?

Like the national weather service?

That's an interesting idea, but I don't think, especially after all we've heard, that's the case.

I'm not sure why anyone is trying to discredit the OP. He did list several sources in his original post. If this is plagiarism, don't you think he would have left those out too? Is it possible the Cracked author borrowed from these sources? Is there an agenda here to derail us from the topic?

I for one have found this thread very interesting. Had a buddy in college that was OBSESSED with these "number" stations and anything odd he came across on his shortwave...He even built his own antennas. At the time I thought he was crazy, but somebody somewhere is broadcasting for a reason!
