Numbers in the night

As anyone who has ever been given a mixtape by me will know, I have a thing about number stations.

Number stations (for anyone who doesn’t already know, or didn’t click that link) are thought to serve as a comms channel to spies operating overseas. No government has acknowledged their use, but evidence seems to point to that being the case. The stations themselves are fabulously eerie lists of numbers or spelling alphabets, being read aloud, via automated speech generation. You also get samples of music (’Tyrolean Mountain Tune’ being a personal favourite).

Therefore, I thoroughly enjoyed this little game and spent a good hour the other night, reliving childhood nights huddled under bedclothes, twiddling the dial, looking for voices. Ah, happy days.

The only thing missing was the sound of John Peel saying, ‘Aswad’.
