The Source Of The Most Terrifying Signal Ever​

The Most Terrifying Shortwave Signal Ever • The Most Terrifying Shortwave Signal ...

I made a video recently on the story of the famous East German numbers station, Gongs and Chimes. This was one of the most unnerving numbers stations with its eerie gongs and chimes sound who’s quality worsened as the tape it was sent from degraded over the years.

It was widely believed for many years, in the numbers station community that the station, Enigma ID G03 came from Zeesen or other transmitting facilities in the Konings Wusterhausen area of Germany. However, other sources I’ve researched seem to suggest otherwise.
