Starting off in 1890, we take a look back at the history of secret radio transmissions, leading up until today and unravel some of the mystery, whilst uncovering some new oddities, of what are known as ‘Numbers Stations’.

Competition is now closed, but here is the one time pad in case anyone wants to mess with it anyhow.

KiwiSDR – A web-based shortwave radio that you can use to hunt your very own station. Pick a radio from one of the locations and control via clicking on the spectrometer. You’ll find most stations sitting in the LSB band. – You’ll find station listings, schedules, well, basically you can find a whole horde of information on both current and historical stations. Also active in all sorts of radio shenanigans, such as their recent mapping of the DPRK’s diplomatic modem network.
