Welcome to the 33rd edition of Numbers & Oddities. No, this is not a typo. The first 9 editions already appeared in 1995 and the column re-surfaced exactly two years ago, in March 1998. I am glad that there are still a lot of numbers stations left to listen to and I think that the interest in these stations is still growing. Not only amongst the radio enthusiasts but also the media are interested. Recently National Public Radio hosted a show in which Mike Chace appeared as a representative of WUN. Although this show was not about numbers stations, a recording of 8BY was aired by NPR. A couple of months ago the Russian newspaper Segodnya did a story about FAPSI, and the Cyprus Broadcasting Corporation covered the Lincolnshire Poacher in one of their main news bulletins, aired in February. Radio Netherlands covered the subject in the past and has an article about these stations on their homepage. There is a link to Radio Netherlands on the N&O web site.

Unfortunately I have very little time to spin the dial these days or to look for info for N&O, therefor I am very grateful for all your contributions. Keep it coming folks!

I understand that the Israeli Intelligence stations (E10) also use VHF/UHF frequencies. Do you know the frequencies, or do you know other numbers stations on VHF/UHF, please let me know because I would like to compile a VHF/UHF frequency list of these stations. Thanks!
