  1. Because I'm not a morning person, my alarm clock's buzzer isn't loud enough to wake me up. Instead, I turned it to FM static and turned up the volume.

    I discovered that this otherwise unused frequency repeats the letters "IMQS" in Morse code indefinitely. A Google search turned up nothing significant. What the hell does it mean?

      *coats entire house in tinfoil*

      What you need is a Faraday Cage and planning approval from your local council. At a pinch you could get away with corrugated iron roofing, aluminium sidings and security grills on the windows and doors. Make sure everything's properly earthed and you should be able to retire your tinfoil hat. :)

      The company responsible for The Conet Project has actually demanded royalties from the recordings when musicians have used them in the past.

      Hm. I was wondering about that - who exactly "owns" a public broadcast of a coded message? The shady agencies responsible surely wouldn't enter the public eye for a frivolous lawsuit, and would likely prefer to be distantly separate from the broadcasts instead of appearing to own them. Aside from that, if anyone could be said to own them, it would be the people who recorded the broadcasts. I see The Conet Project has somehow had these recordings signed over to them and has seized this flimsy form of ownership all for itself. Hooray.

      I suppose they could claim copyright for the CD compilation but that should be all.

      Wikipedia on Numbers Stations:
      It is believed that listening to numbers stations without permission in the UK is illegal under Section 48 of the Wireless Telegraphy Act 2006.

      Wonder what your fate would be if you were caught with the Conet Project CD set?
