Spy vs Spy on the Radio

I have this thing where I like to find and listen to numbers stations, where encrypted orders are sent to spies in numerical form.
It is amazing, when you watch movies like the Bond movies etc, you nonchalantly think good story and so forth, but the reality is - it does happen.
And it has been more so lately, usually the Russians and British give out null transmissions, where there is no orders, but recently with everything in the Ukraine going mental, they are going nuts on the orders.
S06s a Russian numbers station is based in Ukraine (believed) and wow that thing was on overdrive, the usual frequency used for their transmission is now overrun by agents morse coding the hell out of the signal, they are actually having conversations in code with each other.
Still you would be amazed by the way they give out info.
Not only in morse or numbers, but also noise. Polytone stations exist also.
Anyways, here is a free online radio tuner, it is great for picking up the numbers stations on shortwave (LSB and USB, and rarely AM bandwiths). Link
And here is a known schedule of broadcasts
Maybe one day I will share the day I spooked the hell out of 4chan pretending to be talking to agents, what was more awesome was the words I was using coincided with an unforseen event when that plane was hijacked by the Ethiopian co-pilot. People were starting to get scary, until I mucked it up :P
But here is a recording a made a few days ago (the first site I linked can record also for you ) its from a Poland based MI5 British numbers station - E11 (or commonly known as "Oblique" among HAM enthusiasts). Link
If this piques your interests some what, have a listen to recordings old and new from the conet project. Link
