Welcome all to Issue 8 of the E2k Newsletter and Seasonal Greetings from your editors.

We look forward to an interesting year 2002.

Thanks again to all contributors for their input, and a special welcome to our "new" monitors who's efforts are greatly appreciated.

Activity levels appear to have dropped again in the last 2 months. The logging of E15 from Canada, (are they beaming to a new target area?) and its reception in Europe on 5540kHz again in Dec, the rare E10 "ABC" making a number of appearances. E03 using a triplet not heard for a few years all added some spice to things, detailed in the Voice Stations section, while on CW both M76 and M26 (wrongly entered as M34 in Issue 7) made one of their rare appearances, detailed in Morse Stations section.

Battle of the airwaves, see comment in Voice section.

NUMBER STATION MONITORS is the ENIGMA 2000's interest group sited at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/enigma2000

It is hoped that many of you will use this site to discuss the subject of Number Stations as well as sharing frequencies. Remember too that the 'Spooks' facility is also available to you.

Number Stations mentioned on BBC Local Radio 3rd December: As a result of an e-mail to BBC Radio London number stations were mentioned by presenter Jon Gaunt. The gist of the e-mail mentioned a phone call to the Greek Embassy to find out if it were possible to take a receiver to Greece for monitoring purposes and the refusal. That scenario was used in the discussion of the fate of the 14 plane spotters incarcerated in Greece. Mr Gaunt sounded a little quizzical as he quoted 'Number Stations'.

Issue 14 of the CONTROL LIST will be on the Website in mid January, some minor amendments/corrections/additional info.

Members will notice the change of format for the Morse section in this issue, please let us know if you prefer this or would like to go back to that used in Issue 7 with more detailed information
