Number stations:

(Above The Lincolnshire poacher) 

Number stations started broadcasting at the end of world war 1 and are allegedly used to send encrypted messages via the short wave radio stations that broadcast them.
The untraceable transmissions interupt static and begin with their general pattern of repeating music and pre-recorded voices, usually those of women or small children, repeating a series of numbers. The broadcasts are global, so whichever recipients they are intended for could be anywhere in the world and still be able to tune in.

In an interview, Paul Beamont, one of the co-owners of a radio group who track radio oddities and call themselves “Enigma2000”,  said that he thought number stations were most likely some kind of dead hand system:
  “If a nuclear war was to start, then the message would change, and that’s for the people who need to know, on what to do and where to go” He said. “Something possibly left over from the cold war”.\

Others think it's a system that governments use to send messages to spies operating outside of their respective countries. 

What do you think?
