Hobart Radio International is a shortwave community service relayed across the globe via shortwave and FM in New Zealand.
We are the voice for Tasmania, and will always be developing and different. Crossing the borders since 2004, telling the unknown and investigating on what's important.
In this special show we’re unravelling the cold spooky truth of a shortwave number station. We will cover undercover agents, past and present number stations and the rise of Asian number stations. LISTEN via embedded player: DOWNLOAD| TWITTER| FACEBOOK| TRANSCRIPT

Spy Station Special Part 2 & 3 (Web only)
The "Koph" of Germany Jochen Schafer is our special producer for these two parts of the Spy Station Special. In his two shows he features rare recordings of number stations, specialising in German number stations. He also is a talented piano player. Impressive audio from a cassette recorder. These are from April 2005 and whilst accurate at the time some websites mentioned may no longer exist.
