Welcome to the weird world of numbers stations
Known to exist since World War I, numbers stations are believed to have been used or still being used, for transmission of coded messages to intelligence officers operating in foreign countries.
One of the best known numbers station was the “Lincolnshire Poacher“, which is thought to have been run by the British Secret Intelligence Service.
