    [release]#1. UVB-76[/release]


    What is it?

    It is an irritating, electronic noise , not unlike the sound of a truck horn played through a cheese grater. It is broadcast over a certain frequency, constantly, and has been since at least 1982. But the weird part isn't the tone, but what happens when it stops.

    its 20-something year run, the sound has been interrupted only three times, the earliest known time being Christmas Eve in 1997. Each time a voice comes on and lists several Russian names and numbers before returning to the foghorn. The most recent occurrence was 2006, a mere three years before the time of this writing. It is clearly becoming more active after remaining quiet during the Cold War.
    Update - It seems as if UVB-76 has stopped broadcasting since 06/06/2010.

    Update 2 - It looks like it was only short downtime, It's back online.

    The case gets curiouser when you realize that the noise is apparently something held up to a live microphone rather than a recording or just some random feedback (distant conversations can be sometimes heard behind the sound, though they're difficult to decipher).

    That is, someone is actively broadcasting and maintaining the signal. (not any more)

    So What's the Deal?

    Information on the mysterious station had been compiled here on Geocities, the best place for code cracking and speculation on the Web. From this, we know it originates from Russia, specifically here:



    That listener claimed the operator is the "1st Communications Hub of the General Staff of Army," and its purpose was to "transmit orders to the military units and recruitment centers of the Moscow military district."
    Wikipedia argues that this makes no sense, since it's mostly just that simple buzztone.

    Other theories are that the transmission is part of the Dead Hand system. The purpose of the "dead hand" system (as described in a book of the same name) was to maintain a second strike capability, by ensuring that the destruction of the Soviet leadership would not have prevented the Soviet military from releasing its weapons.

    The dead-hand system he [Dr. Blair] describes today takes this defensive trend to its logical, if chilling, conclusion. The automated system in theory would allow Moscow to respond to a Western attack even if top military commanders had been killed and the capitol incinerated.

    The heart of the system is said to lie in deep underground bunkers south of Moscow and at backup locations. In a crisis, military officials would send a coded message to the bunkers, switching on the dead hand. If nearby ground-level sensors detected a nuclear attack on Moscow, and if a break was detected in communications links with top military commanders, the system would send low-frequency signals over underground antennas to special rockets.

    Flying high over missile fields and other military sites, these rockets in turn would broadcast attack orders to missiles, bombers and, via radio relays, submarines at sea. Contrary to some Western beliefs, Dr. Blair says, many of Russia's nuclear-armed missiles in underground silos and on mobile launchers can be fired automatically.
    It is not known whether Russia continues to use the system, and it is possible that it is still in place. Some commentators state the system never operated in fully automatic mode.

    An article in Wired magazine from September 2009 indicates that not only does Dead Hand still exist, but that it is also ready to react as intended. The article goes on to state that Dead Hand still receives system upgrades.

    Update - Since the signal now seems to have stopped, there are many more theories concerning what has happened to it. Many believe that it has 'gone digital' and is now being transmitted using other means, likely digital and not over analogue airwaves.

    Update 2 - It looks like it was only short downtime, It's back online.


    What cosmic duck thinks

    I don't think that the sound being transmitted contains anything other than noise, and that the voice breaks are just system tests, but it does makes sense to believe that the system is part of a dead man's switch type system, as in, when the sound stops, it means something bad and unwanted has occurred, and then soon after, something even worse will happen. All i know for sure is that the sound freaks the hell out of me!

    [release]#2. The Backward Music Station[/release]


    What is it?

    The "Backward Music Station" doesn't actually play backward music. That's just what they call it. What it is broadcasting instead is something from the fucking bowels of Hell itself:


    A high-pitched grinding, with some banging thrown in, perhaps just to make it sound creepier. That video said it was recorded in 2004 and claimed the signal had since gone dormant, but there are other recordings claiming to be as recent as September of 2009:


    In the comments section of that one, our brave listener claims with a burst of excitement and exclamation marks: "Two weeks ago I logged it on four frequencies within a few minutes... all of them CFH wefax frequencies!!!!" WEFAX meaning weather facsimile meaning it's in grayscale meaning fuck if i know. But it shows the station has resurfaced and resurfaced hard, hard enough to warrant a sudden increase in punctuation.

    Unlike the UVB-76, no voice interruptions have been heard. It's just a noise, a noise that may have an encrypted message of World Domination, or may not.

    So What's the Deal?

    People have put quite a bit of effort into figuring it out. The below graph, to people who know what the hell they're looking at, apparently demonstrates how sophisticated the effort has been to hide the true signal in the noise.



    The signal appears on more than one frequency, one from within the USA, the other from Europe. The frequencies are similar to those used by the U.S. Navy.

    Is it a heavily encrypted signal to communicate with spies? If it's a noise deliberately made by someone somewhere, then would there not be someone on the other end who had the know-how to make sense of it? Remember that behind every broadcast signal there is equipment, electricity and expense on someone's part. It has to be for a reason, right?

    What cosmic duck thinks

    Like the UVB-76 transmission, i think that if it stops, bad things will happen, but i do believe that it's more advanced than a simple dead man's switch, i'm almost certainly sure that there is some sort of encoded message in the sound and that is it vital to the operation of some super-top-secret operation put in place to keep the USA (and possibly the world) safe.


    [release]#3. The Wow! Signal[/release]


    What is it?

    This broadcast rivals or even surpasses the Backward Music Station in mysteriousness. It is so mysterious, in fact, they were forced to go with this ridiculous name.



    This was a radio signal that was picked up at The Big Ear radio telescope. Yes, this one comes from space. Big Ear used numbers, from zero to 10, to document how far above the useless background noise any signals went. In a comically childish system, the eggheads ran out of fingers and had to use toes, adding letters A-Z on top of the numbers. The Wow! Signal was "6EQUJ5," meaning it began at a scale of six, crept past the letter threshold, jumped to Q and then as far as U before fading gradually.

    All of this happened over 37 seconds, and all of this from a seemingly empty point in space. Perhaps even more mind-boggling, it came from a non-terrestrial and non-solar system source. It was a signal shot to Earth from one of the emptiest places imaginable, and something from that place somehow got to us.

    It's called the "Wow!" signal because the man who found it was so amazed by it that he circled it and wrote "Wow!" on the side, which for posterity was better than "HOLY FUCKING MOTHER OF COCK SHIT!"

    So What's the Deal?

    It could be, as the killjoys at Wikipedia suggest, interstellar scintillation of a weaker continuous signal. If that statement did little more than sexually excite you, then all you need to know is that a continuous signal is far less remarkable, and what they picked up might have been a weak, continuous signal that gained strength for a short time. However, it's a mysterious signal from space that follows a very calculated system, turning off, and turning on. That... really shouldn't be.

    The signal had the trademark of an artificially produced interstellar broadcast. How did they broadcast it from a point in space where there are no planets and there are no solar systems? Well, the only explanation would be a spaceship, and the signal is used to communicate to other spaceships.

    The guy who found the signal in the first place tried to deny it was extraterrestrial life; that it was something from Earth reflected off of space debris, but there are problems with that theory.

    If it was from Earth, the reflector would have to have been in all sorts of unrealistic requirements for the nature of the signal. For once the explanation that there's an alien craft beaming signals is more logically sound than the tried and true "space debris" argument. Holy shit!

    What cosmic duck thinks

    Well, for one, i'm disappointed that there is no audio recording or even a simulation of the signal, but i'm still impressed at what they have. Putting aside that it could have been a receiver error or some sort of glitch, and also not forgetting that it's a signal, not a noise, that someone (or something) has modulated into a signal that can be transmitted, i think that it's some sort of probe signal, sent out either by us, or extra terrestrials, that has been received by us but not yet properly analysed.


    [release]#4. The Max Headroom Broadcast Intrusion[/release]


    What is it?

    Basically some guy in a mask doing this:


    This was a television broadcast interruption, breaking into WGN-TV and WTTW on November 22, 1987. The only way to sum this up in a single sentence is to say that a man was dressed as Max Headroom and crazy in ways most crazy people can only longingly aspire to.

    For those not familiar with him because you don't remember the 80s, Max Headroom was a CGI character with a distorted, electronic, stuttering voice. The background was constantly moving in a dizzying descent into pure madness. He did Coca-Cola ads and even had his own TV show back in the day. As bizarre as that sounds--it was the 80s, you had to be there--the intruder somehow made this infinitely creepier.



    The two stations, WGN-TV and WTTW, were interrupted within two hours. The first, the intruder interrupted the WGN nine o'clock news to announce to the world he had a screw loose. Unfortunately for him, there was only a buzzing noise accompanying the video. Then on the PBS station WTTW, Doctor Who was interrupted by the same video, though this time with audio. And it went for a horrifying minute and a half.

    The YouTube clip up there has subtitles, but they aren't very helpful. Here's a play by play, though it's about as useful as someone turning to you and explaining that the strange man on the subway is farting in Morse code without mentioning the important detail of why he does it.

    So What's the Deal?

    You might wonder how in the hell some nutjob could have the technical capability to get himself in front of millions of viewers by hacking the TV signal of one of the largest local TV stations in the country (that being WGN) but the shocking thing is it's incredibly easy. Apparently you just need a fairly simple piece of equipment that you can park near the broadcast transmitter. Even if the station encrypts their signal, you can still jam it so that nothing gets through.

    Though how this nutjob managed even that has to leave you scratching your head, considering that he used his precious seconds with an audience to utter such thought-provoking lines as "I stole CBS!" and "I made a giant masterpiece for all the greatest world newspaper nerds." He finishes by bending over and allowing a girl to spank his naked ass with a fly swatter, screeching that someone was coming to get him.

    Oh and the culprits were never caught. Sleep easy!

    What cosmic duck thinks

    Easy. Pre-4chaners.


    [release]#5. The Bloop & The Slowdown[/release]


    What is it?

    Well first of all, they weren't broadcasts, so technically they doesn't belong in this thread, but they are still weird-ass sounds that was picked up, so i'm including them.

    The Bloop
    ------------------
    Tired of having its mind blown by the guys in the archeology department, in 1997 modern science's mind pulled itself up off the mat and triumphantly blew itself.

    In that year, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration recorded a strange sound in the ocean. Strange and LOUD. So loud that it was picked up by two separate microphones 3,000 fucking miles apart. The sound, dubbed "The Bloop," doesn't sound like anything at normal speed. However, the NOAA did us the favour of speeding up the recording to 16 times the normal speed, causing it to sound like a turd dropping into the toilet. Bloop! Except, you know, awesomely loud.

    Scientists determined that its wave pattern indicates it was made by an animal, and not a giant electromagnet sucking a plane out of the sky, as the creators of Lost were no doubt hoping.

    So What's the Deal?

    There is no animal big enough or loud enough to make that kind of noise, not by a long shot. Not a blue whale, not a howler monkey, not a startled teenage girl.

    Not long after the NOAA posted the sound to their web site, some HP Lovecraft fans on the internet quite reasonably decided that The Bloop must have been made by Lovecraft's Cthulhu, a giant, murderous squid-dragon-thing.

    What cosmic duck thinks

    Well, i'm scared by this noise, more so when you realise that scientists know more about the surface of the moon than they do about what's in some of our oceans. It's either some massive octo-whale monstrosity, or a giant Russian nuclear submarine bigger than our minds can comprehend, that is studying the octo-whale. (Artists rendering of the octo-whale. More requested.)


    The Slowdown
    ------------------
    Another phenomenon similar to The Bloop is The Slowdown . Similarly the slowdown was also recorded with an autonomous hydrophone array, which are basically microphones in the sea listening out for cool noises and such. It was recorded some miles offshore to the west of South Africa.

    The Slowdown got it's name because the sound slowly decreases in frequency over about 7 minutes, creating a sort of comedy trumpet yet horrifying gut-wrenching wail.

    However, unlike The Bloop, this has been picked up more than once, in fact it happens several times a year since it was first heard in 1997.

    So What's the Deal?

    The most popular theory is that it's the sound of ice moving in Antarctica, or a friction phenomenon of ice rubbing over land.

    What cosmic duck thinks

    To me, The Slowdown sound is a lot lower than the sound i would expect ice to make, whether it be rubbing against land or more ice. Also wouldn't that make a sound going from low to high if it rubbed in the opposite direction? I don't believe such a sound has yet been recorded. Once again i'm going to chalk it up to old octo-whale.


    [release]#6. Numbers Stations[/release]


    What is it?

    Similar to The Backwards Music Station, a Number Station broadcasts seemingly encoded messages for an unknown purpose, in a very creepy fashion. However, unlike The BMS, Numbers Stations transmit artificially generated voices reading strings of numbers, letters or words. Sometimes including a separating clip of music or a sound.

    When you first hear about a Number Station, most people think of the ridiculous TV show Lost and the repeating stream of unlucky numbers (4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42) that are broadcast from a radio tower on the island. The writer of the series J.J. Abrams will have undoubtedly gotten the idea from this phenomena.

    These transmissions have been heard in many different languages but are generally all spoken by female voices, though sometimes male or even children's voices are used, just to make them a little more spine-chilling.

    I have a few different examples of Numbers Stations here, i'll do my best to give info for each one:

    Phonetic Alphabet Nato - A female voice repeats "Yankee Hotel Foxtrot" in what seems to be a Russian accent. The band Wilco used this as the title of one of their albums and have a sample of the recording in some songs.
    Lincolnshire Poacher - A Series of changing numbers that used two bars from the English folk song "The Lincolnshire Poacher" as an interval signal. Transmitted from an RAF base in Cyprus. Seemingly inactive as of July 2008.
    E10 YHF being jammed by the mysterious "Chinese Music Station" - This jammer has been dubbed the Chinese Fire Dragon Jammer and purportedly comes from Hainan Island which is located in the Gulf of Tonkin and is a part of the People's Republic of China.
    Swedish Rhapsody - Ok seriously, what's with all the creepy children's music, these people know how to make peoples skin crawl.
    •The Crackle -
    A mysterious number station that often interferes with neighboring frequencies as it wanders around the band, never sticking with one frequency. It's sound has been described as "dragging tin cans across the floor" but I find it somewhat similar to the Imperial Probe Droids from "The Empire Strikes Back".
    •The Rapid Asian Numbers Station -
    The rapid Asian number station is a broadcast over 7726kHz broadcasted out of somewhere in the heart of China. Also known as the "Chinese Robot" this number station has a odd background screech to amplify the creepiness of the female Asian voice rapidly firing numbers. The voice seems to be saying English numbers which only add to the creepy factor.

    If you are a little crazy and get obsessed by these recordings or something, here is a massive streamable list of 150 recordings from The Conet Project , a collection of Numbers Stations recordings gathered by an enthusiast.

    So What's the Deal?

    Evidence supports popular assumptions that the broadcasts are used to send messages to undercover agents operating in other countries (known as illegals), to be decoded using a one-time pad or other decoding device. This usage has not been publicly acknowledged by any government that may operate a numbers station.

    In fact, only the theory about communication with spies has ever garnered any official support, and that in the form of the US government accusing the government of Cuba of using the well-known “Atención” Number Station to instruct agents working in the states. The case included having found one of the spies’ laptop computers, and the decryption program thereon. With that program they were able to understand the otherwise befuddling messages. Further—if empirical—evidence of this theory is that since the end of the cold war the occurrences of Numbers Stations have greatly reduced.

    There are also tales of these being messages from those lost in the Bermuda Triangle, or MiB telling each other who to harass, but as tantalizing as such tales are, there is nothing to support them.

    When a Numbers Station is found there are some diligent souls who take it upon themselves to break out their radio gear and attempt to track the broadcast to its origin, but few are ever found. In the cases where a suspect site is located, no one has been waiting there to claim responsibility. So the search continues.

    What cosmic duck thinks

    Well, you can't deny that they are transmitting encoded messages, but the contents of the messages is up for great debate, movements of spies? Targets for government hit-men? Secret hidden ships in the Bermuda triangle? Even non-government theories are afloat, messages to drug traffickers and the like. I don't think that there would be any information that is super top-secret sent over the airwaves so that half the people on the planet could listen in to if they liked, i'm sure they have better ways for distributing that kind of stuff. It's arguable that they could even be defunct by now, but just don't want to let other countries know they have stopped whatever it was that they were doing, so they will just keep transmitting the signals.

    [release]Tidbits[/release]

    Yosemite Sam
    -----------------
    Yosemite Sam is the nickname of a mysterious number station that first surfaced on December 19, 2004. It transmits on several shortwave frequencies in dual side band: 3700 kHz, 4300 kHz, 6500 kHz, and 10500 kHz. The nickname is taken from the Looney Tunes character Yosemite Sam, whose voice is played as part of the unusual transmission.

    The transmission begins on one of the frequencies. Ten seconds later, it is repeated on the next higher frequency, and so on for a total of two minutes. The entire pattern takes precisely two minutes, and always begins seven seconds after the top of an hour.


    Russian Woodpecker
    -------------------------
    Neither unexplained or a proper broadcast in the sense that we have been discussing in this thread, it's still cool and fits in with the theme.

    The Russian Woodpecker was a notorious Soviet signal that could be heard on the shortwave radio bands worldwide between July 1976 and December 1989. It sounded like a sharp, repetitive tapping noise, at 10 Hz, giving rise to the "Woodpecker" name. The random frequency hops disrupted legitimate broadcast, amateur radio, and utility transmissions and resulted in thousands of complaints by many countries worldwide.

    The signal was long believed to be that of an over-the-horizon radar (OTH) system. This theory was publicly confirmed after the fall of the Soviet Union, and is now known to be the Duga-3 system, part of the Soviet ABM early-warning network.


    The antenna array is just outside Chernobyl.



    That's all folks

    I'll try to keep the tread updated if i find more suitable content, feel free to suggest stuff. I seriously got freaked out by some of the youtube videos, the backwards music station gave me real instant chills, and i can't listen to UVB-76 without crying, it messes me up mentally. Anyway, hope you liked it.

    Those are pretty interesting. You might wanna mention number stations too then.


    Also:
    There was an accidental incident on KTBC-TV in Austin, Texas in 1989 when a late night technician, who was privately watching an adult channel for his own personal entertainment, threw an incorrect transfer switch resulting in approximately 30 seconds of what was described as "hard core pornography" being broadcast.

    I hate mystery's like this, you just want to know what it was but yet you can't.

    But I still love them :3:

    UPDATE: Added recording of the third voice interruption from UVB-76. Click here to listen.
    Sounds like someone is muffled and being tortured. My god, thats the only thing in this thread that creeped me out (i browse rule34 for giggles)

    That makes me feel REALLY creeped out actually, it clearly sounds like someone is muffled and trying to talk at the beginning, and the way the russian says something is like a list. And at the VERY end, it sounds like an alarm, or a fucking countdown. I heard "fieve, fwour, three, twoo" But they all sounded pretty much the same.
    That is VERY CREEPY, but if it was a countdown, whats even more creepy is that it stopped at 2, or the transmission stopped at 2. What was launched/sent or not laucnhed/sent?

    God, im not usually a conspiracy person, but thats just weird.

    #3. The Wow! Signal

    What cosmic duck thinks
    Well, for one, i'm disappointed that there is no audio recording or even a simulation of the signal, but i'm still impressed at what they have.

    Please add that.

    The backward music station was, without a doubt, the creepiest shit I've ever heard.
    Yeah, it inda reminds me of the distorted noise in the Slenderman videos.

    The slowdown is in my opinion more creepy than the Bloop. Add it cosmic.

    Damn that was a good read, my personal favourite has to be either the UVB-76 or the Max Headroom guy.

    What about Number Stations? They are rumored to be government controlled stations used for communication with spies. (yes I know I suggested it twice, I just didn't want him have skimmed over it and missed it)

    I'd like to break into that former soviet station and see what's inside, but that would probably not end well for me if it's really the military.

    Search Number Stations. Those have some pretty freaky tones sometimes. They are unexplained, but apparently are used by spys for communicating with their home countries.

    Shit, ninjed twice in the same minute. FFFFUUUUU-
