Numbers stations, revisited

I have written about numbers stations before (Uno, Dos, Tres…On the Internet – 11/26/12), but thanks to the guys on the Glowbugs Google Group, I now have some more information:

  • The Numbers Station. Released earlier this year, this movie starts John Cusack. Here is the IMDB description: A disgraced black ops agent is dispatched to a remote CIA broadcast station to protect a code operator. Soon, they find themselves in a life-or-death struggle to stop a deadly plot before it’s too late.

    It’s currently available for streaming on Netflix, and I watched it tonight. It’s kind of violent (lots of people get shot), but it’s a decent thriller.

  • ENIGMA 2000. This group’s website describes the group as “a UK based online group, whose aims are to bring together listeners and enthusiasts who monitor and gather information on ‘Number Stations’ and other related radio transmissions. Through our Yahoo Group monitors can share their logs, discuss frequencies, thoughts and opinions on this most emotive subject.”

    Jim, K6FWT, notes, “These folks are SERIOUS enthusiasts. I have heard that they surpass many intelligence services with their thoroughness. You can get in up to your eyeballs if you  don’t watch it.”
