The next subject I'd like to discuss is the topic of number's stations. Numbers station's are radio broadcasts from different places around the globe. They either broadcast numbers or coded phrases. Some people believe that they are spy channels used for transferring information between spy groups. Other people think that they are government installations used for mind control or some other devious means. Some people on the fringe believe that some numbers stations are set up to communicate to alien worlds or to communicate to other aliens tuned into the frequency here on earth.
Here is a creepy example. This is a video of a broadcast dubbed Swedish Rhapsody. It's pretty scary because it combines that twinkly ice cream truck music with a child repeating numbers.
The last video for today is another example of a numbers station. This is probably the most well known and many people have tried to figure out what is going on here. The whole place (in Russia) and the broadcast is shrouded in Mystery. The station and the broadcast go by the name UVB-76
"The purpose of the station has not been confirmed by government or broadcast officials. However, the former Minister of Communications and Informatics of the Republic of Lithuania[who?] has written that the purpose of the voice messages is to confirm that operators at receiving stations are alert. Other claims are that the broadcast is constantly being listened to by military commissariats.
There is speculation published in the Russian Journal of Earth Sciences which describes an observatory measuring changes in the ionosphere by broadcasting a signal at 4625 kHz, the same as the Buzzer.However, this would not explain the voice messages.
It is also speculated that the voice messages are some sort of Russian military communications, and that the buzzing sound is merely a "channel marker", used to keep the frequency occupied by making it unattractive for other potential users. The author does not explain the continued expenditure on this public transmission for such a small trickle of usable information, particularly with the advent of cheap, reliable, secure communication via the Internet. It is worth noting that this transmission has been maintained consistently and at high power for over 30 years.
There are two other Russian stations that follow a similar format, nicknamed "The Pip" and "The Squeaky Wheel". Like the Buzzer, these stations transmit a signature sound that is repeated constantly, but is occasionally interrupted to relay coded voice messages.
There is much speculation about the current transmitter site. The former transmitter was located near Povarovo, Russia at 56°5′0″N 37°6′37″E which is about halfway between Zelenograd andSolnechnogorsk and 40 kilometres (25 mi) northwest of Moscow, near the village of Lozhki. The location and callsign were unknown until the first known voice broadcast of 1997. In September 2010, the station's transmitter was moved to near the town of Pskov. This may have been due to a reorganization of the Russian military. In 2011 a group of urban explorers explored the abandoned buildings at Povarovo.They claim that it is an abandoned military base. A radio log record was found, confirming the operation of a transmitter at 4625 kHz. Recently (5-18-14), one of the transmission sites for the buzzer has been found. it is located here 60°18′40.1″N 30°16′40.5″E. This was confirmed by "Priyom" an organization dedicated to monitoring strange radio signals, such as The Buzzer. Their post, which includes the location and pictures taken, is available on their website."
In other news I have just released my fourth short story called "Death Walk" you may remember from the blog I talked about real life zombification. The story is about a man who can't deal with the death of his newly wedded wife, he finds a way to bring her back, but he also finds that some things are worse than death.
