It has long been speculated that there are radio stations all over the planet that operate in a simple and foolproof way for government agencies communicating with spies working undercover. Tonight we are going to discover a world of espionage that uses the air around us to communicate with imbedded agents that could be your next door neighbor. Josh from HAM Radio Crash Course introduces us to a hobby for some, and a way of overthrowing governments for others. Numbers Stations are a shortwave radio station characterized by broadcasts of formatted numbers, which are believed to be addressed to intelligence officers operating in foreign countries. Most identified stations use speech synthesis to vocalize numbers, although digital modes such as phase-shift keying and frequency-shift keying, as well as Morse code transmissions, are not uncommon. Most stations have set time schedules, or schedule patterns; however, other stations appear to broadcast at random times. Stations may or may not have set frequencies in the HF band.
The first known use of numbers stations was during World War I, with the numbers transmitted in Morse code. Numbers stations were most prolific during the Cold War era, yet many continue to operate and some have even switched operators. The Czech Ministry of the Interior and the Swedish Security Service have both acknowledged the use of numbers stations by Czechoslovakia for espionage, with declassified documents proving the same. With a few exceptions, no QSL responses have been received from numbers stations by shortwave listeners who sent reception reports to said stations, which is the expected behavior of a non-clandestine station.

Greetings human listeners. I’m Cameron Brauer and this is My Alien Life Patron page. https://patron.podbean.com/myalienlife
My Alien Life is a podcast for those who have a story to tell, and I really wish I could get to all of your stories. I promise to do my best..
What is this? Think of it as an online tip jar. My Alien Life Patron Page is a website that gives everyone in the world an opportunity to become a patron and support the artists they believe in. The great thing about supporting My Alien Life is, you get to decide how much you feel comfortable contributing to each podcast. My goal is to keep doing at least two podcasts each week… And it’s okay if you want to put a cap on how much you’d like to support every month so you don’t go over your budget.. As you know, some weeks I get a burst of energy and I want to produce lots of new content…
I’ll keep producing episode after episode and you’ll get ALL the content.. I won’t hold back and make you pay for extra content.
And if you just want to listen without becoming a patron, that’s awesome, you still get to hear all My Alien Life Podcasts for free.
It’s expensive to make a podcast. There’s electronic gear, web domain fees, web hosting fees, tee-shirts, postage stamps, tin foil hats, alien assault spray and more.....
No matter what you decide, please always listen to the podcast. That’s what I really want. We are a team, and your support is what keeps people like us going…
