E 25 still alive :)
« on: January 14, 2014, 1933 UTC »
Hello ,

E 25 picked up on 9450 kHz around 12:14 UTC on 31/12/2014 with the musical intro of Um Kalthoum with inta Omri song ( you are my life ) followed by a strange message giving the agent code , followed by message X3 then no message , straight ahead followed by repeat X3 and then end of message end of transmission ! !

At least they are still alive.  ;D

All the best

They're using that song on a numbers station?  Oh jeez.  I know it's patriotic and fitting and whatever else but... ah crums.  I love that song!  Grumble grumble grumble...

Hello again fellow Spy Numbers fans

Unfortunately  there was no message on that day , another odd tx
Today 15/1 they wer on again around 12:15 with Um Kalthoum again , followed by a complete message
So they are getting almost back to normal .

Recorded one minute of the TX and will try to upload it to youtube and give you the link.

All the best
