Numbers Stations

Numbers stations (or number stations) are shortwave radio stations of uncertain origin. They generally broadcast artificially generated voices reading streams of numbers, words, letters (sometimes using a spelling alphabet), tunes or Morse code. They are in a wide variety of languages and the voices are usually women’s, though sometimes men’s or children’s voices are used. more on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Numbers_station

Honestly, I thought such thing would only exists in something like LOST but it seems to be real.

What’s interesting that a British official once said;

2:18s-2:26s– People shouldn’t be interested in numbers stations, because people shouldn’t be listening to them, because they are illegal to listen to.

Now I wonder if we have numbers stations in Jordan.

NOTE: I promised to blog about CEDAW again, I know, I’m late but I’m seriously busy plus the more I read the more I tend to be pro CEDAW and by the way, I’m active on twitter now
