Suddenly the piercing buzzing noise that has continued incessantly for months stops. A cold voice takes over.
U-V-B-7-6, is read out in a thick Russian accent, before listing a series of code words and numbers. Then, just as suddenly, it ends. The buzzing returns, for another few months.
That is what has greeted listeners of a mysterious radio station nicknamed 'The Buzzer' - and code named UVB-76, or more recently MDZhB - since the 1970s.
But what the Buzzer is doing, or who is broadcasting it, remains a mystery - with theories ranging from the Russian military to atmospheric research.
The noise rings out on a frequency of 4625 kHz, which anyone is able to listen in on, including online at one of several live streams.
For years the transmission seemed to originate from the town of Povarovo near Moscow but, in September 2010, the location changed. Now, it is believed to be in Western Russia.
According to the website Numbers Station, the Buzzer works as a communications center within the Western Military District that sends messages to corresponding military units and their outposts.

I always thought it was a Soviet jammer.

I wonder if the ‘Lincolnshire Poacher’ numbers station is still around?
While we’re at it, can someone explain why MSNBC is still being broadcast?
MSNBC’s programming makes a lot less sense than this “UVB-76” does, and their ratings are significantly lower.
“The woods are lovely, dark and deep but I have promises to keep and miles to go before I sleep”
Reminds me of “On the Beach.”
Numbers station —many countries operate them, like Cuba, NK, even we do, too.
They set into a long, boring routine endlessly, but for most in fact FINALLY there will be tiny changes before returning to baseline, and that’s where the real Info Meat is.
Most theories say it’s for very deep cover agents.
There are online interest groups that follow these stations and log when changes are detected.
I dunno, but given the competition they would probably do no worse than 3rd. in my local ratings book.
Perimetr. Dead Hand.
Now that’s comedy!
It’s obviously owned by Budweiser.
Nice photos at the site.
A boil lying on skins behind our backs was turning the knobs of a
small transistor radio.

psychological warfare. A subversive....”)
And the tent was suddenly filled with an announcer’s voice speaking Commie.
(Jane Jane Jane....)
Then, with music from Moscow, followed by English and French speech.
(”The recording was made at the Moscow Theatre of Musical Miniatures.”)
