Abstract:

Wander outside the normal shortwave frequency bands and you might just encounter strange voices reading long lists of five digit numbers. No one really knows who is sending or receiving these broadcasts. Some people believe that they are secret messages, broadcast by governments for their spies abroad. ‘Numberstation’ by Rob Lycett, broadcasts encrypted [secret] messages in the form of a list of 200 five digit numbers.
