New RadioUser Series on Spy Radio
From May 2018, RadioUser magazine will begin a new series on the role of Radio During the Cold War. Our authors will look at 'spy' radio, numbers stations, misinformation, psychological warfare and propaganda in radio.
As a foretaste, check out the excellent Conet-Project. These are recordings of numbers stations in a range of languages, and from a number of countries. Did these really target field-agents with one-time decryption pads or were we just meant to believe they did? I think the latter might be closer to the truth. The mystery deepens. They are still on the air, by the way, one could be heard this week on 99300 kHz by the way. North Korea? (070318).
RadioUser carries a review of the book Shadows of the State by Lewis Bush in its April issue.
