Kevin Slavin directed us to the "Conet Project," a site that follows, well, read for yourself:
The Conet Project is a wildly popular archive of recordings of what are commonly called Shortwave Numbers Stations. The general patterns which are described for these recordings have been adapted to a codebase which broadcasts them to @cr_conet.


The sounds are ghostly, cryptic, haunting and fodder for anyone with a hint of Orwellian paranoia. On the other hand, they might be seen as pieces of art contructed by a desperate audio editing engineer who secretly dreamed of crafting the most amazing Numbers Station recordings ever.

Just listen for yourself [click].
