This was my first thread here, three years ago. I still think it is one of the best genuine mysteries I've happened upon.
Thinking of it again due to recent events, I set out to research whether there have been any updates or explanations. Instead, I find that searching
just leads to lots of old recordings and info but nothing since the end of transmissions in 2011. The numbers stations wiki contains references to the
old E10 (Enigma-10) stations Mossad ran with no mention of the disruption. This page:
explains the technical details of E10, and confirms it was last heard in March 2011. I have yet to find any discussion of new Mossad broadcasts or
explanation of what tech they might be using now. The message board mentioned in the original link (which is still working) is a Yahoo mailing list,
so I'll sign up and see if answers lurk there. But I have a feeling I'm not going to find anything out.
They have something new and better. They must. Everyone else, as far as I know -- looking into this as well -- is still using numbers stations because
they fit the needs of diplomacy and espionage so well. One-time pads can't be broken, so there's no reason to conceal the stream, as the content is
fully encrypted. Radio waves can go places it's otherwise impossible to reach. They have been in constant use for decades, non-stop, by all global
powers and all connected rebels and many crime organizations.
"In its golden age E10 followed consistent schedules, almost 24/7 transmissions. Its transmissions could be heard worldwide."
And then, in 2011, it just...disappeared. I might be wrong, but as far as I can tell now, either Mossad quit the spy game to spend more time with its
family, or nobody knows what they switched to using instead.
