Appeal: 2004

Hello Folks and thanks for visiting this page. Thanks also to the many people who have kindly sent in sound clips of number stations in the past years - they are all on this site for everyone to hear and "enjoy".

Here is a little "competition". To those who e-mail their number station sound clips, perhaps gathering dust on some ancient cassette in an attic, I will enter their name into a draw. The winner of the draw will receive a boxed set of The CONET Project shown here, including illustrated booklet  http://www.irdial.com/conet.htm.

The draw will take place at 2000 UTC on 31 DEC 04 using the Lincolnshire Poacher's random numbers at that time to choose the winner. I take a 5F number from your e-mail properties and assign you with it. The person whose ID number is nearest Lincolnshire Poacher's header is the winner. 

The winner: Sergey in Ukraine.

The 5F header at 2000 UTC on 31 DEC 04 was ...

64834 which was very close to Sergey's 64702
Well done to Sergey and thanks to everyone else for taking part.

OK we're off and running. Phill in Bristol is the first person to send in a sound clip. Albeit a segment of the track "Gyroscope" by the band "Boards of Canada". It qualifies as it contains a clip of the E5 CIA " Counting Station" in it.

Second entry is from Billy in Ohio, USA who provided these two superb recordings of the rare E21 "British" CIA counting station. The first clip is the voice generator being used for telephone announcement purposes and the second is an actual recording of a transmission around 9.8 MHz on 20 APR 1981.
