GMC Soundpack: Numbers Stations

Numbers Stations:
Mysterious shortwave radio stations that broadcast strings of numbers, seemingly random words and bits of noise and music. It has long been assumed that these stations are used to transmit messages to spies or smugglers.


There have been reports of Numbers Station broadcasts since World War I, though they’re generally associated with the Cold War.


Numbers Stations have been featured in one form or another in the TV shows “Fringe,” “Lost,” and “The Americans,” as well as in films like Jean Cocteau’s “Orpheus” and the upcoming (April 2013) movie “The Numbers Station” starring John Cusack and Malin Akerman.


Our 18-minute collection of Numbers Station recordings include uniquely-formatted broadcasts in English, German, Russian and Czech, and there are two versions of each so that you can provide different messages to your players at different points in your game.  They’re great for Espionage games, but you can also use them in Modern Adventure games or Sci-fi campaigns!

Transmissions include:


• The Beaumont Carillon One (British, Female)

• The Beaumont Carillon Two (British, Female)

• The Leicester Sermon One (British, Male)

• The Leicester Sermon Two (British, Male)

• The Wellesley Milkman One (Czech, Female)

• The Wellesley Milkman Two (Czech, Female)

• G47 One (German, Female)

• G47 Two (German, Female)

• Koenig 1701 One (Russian, Male)

• Koenig 1701 Two (Russian, Male)

If you run espionage games, these are well-nigh essential bits of tradecraft... and if you run any kind of game in which radio has been invented, a numbers station message or two can add an air of mystery or intrigue to whatever might be going on. It [...]

Product Information
Publisher Stock #
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
