I fired up the rig about 45 minutes ago and found this on 10115.5 kHz:

ICJYX BMHDI QKXGT SKCQD ZFBZZ MOVOY HIRWA SUQER PIOGL RZPNN SKVFL ANYVQ AAMWM IVVLM IDKAL MAIYG LIYTE ROWIH DOYAC HDRJM SHJIH

and on and on and on. They were going about 20 wpm. Seems like there are an awful lot of Ys and Qs in there.

I normally set up on 10115 kHz, but I didn’t want any black helicopters landing in my backyard and taking out my dipole.

    A few years back the Brits were transmitting Enigma style coded traffic in commemoration of the 60th anniversary of VE Day with the permission of the UK radio communications authority OFCOM. The last transmission seems to have taken place in May 8th, 2005.

    There is still detailed information posted on this Enigma Event of the Scarborough Special Events Group at:

    I suspect that one of the Black Helicopters which are assigned to regularly fly over your QTH had some sort of an equipment malfunction and inadvertently rebroadcast the old transmissions which they intercepted back in 2005 instead of recording your current activities on 10115 kHz.

    P.S. Actually, if the Black Helicopters get annoyed with your operations, they won’t even bother landing to take out your dipole, they will simply direct a very localized EMP burst at your dipole and take out your equipment :)
