Cool! Any details on what your heard?

I have heard two numbers stations. One was a Hispanic sounding female, she read numbers (in English) and then a burst of digital and then more numbers. This cycle repeated about 5 times and then she was gone. The second was an American sounding male, he just read numbers, no digital. Then at the end he said "Mud Duck out".

Around 10.500 MHz. It was random electronic sounds and a lady reading out numbers in Spanish. Checked for it again later in the day and it was gone.

I remember reading an article many years ago that someone eventually tracked down a numbers station as it was broadcasting. it was a mobile unit out in the middle of nowhere.

they were greeted by people looking at them thru crosshairs, if you know what I mean.

If you locate any of them in the US...

You do not want to. Turn around and leave, hastily.
Those guys aren't kidding.

The penalty for killing a trespasser at a security perimeter is to be tried for murder, found guilty, fined $1 and the cost of the ammunition, and released. Long live double jeopardy.
