Here’s a little known gem I found a week or two ago, I thought I might share….
“Numbers stations are shortwave radio stations of uncertain origin. They generally broadcast people reading streams of numbers, words, or letters (often using a phonetic alphabet).
It is not known publicly with certainty where these signals originate or what purpose they serve. The voices that can be heard on these stations are often mysterious: mechanically generated; spoken in a wide variety of languages; usually female, but sometimes male or those of children.”

It sent a shiver down my spine, especially the ‘mechanically generated voices of children’
At the bottom of the article, there is a link to a radio program, running time about 25 minutes, with examples, some background and conspiracy theories.

All I need now is to work it into a story, either DG or CoC. Any ideas anybody?
