Spy Station Special Part 2 & 3
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.

Shortwave Reception:
We've been featured in the Bulgarian DX Blog and they've also added our schedule.


We've already had an overwhelmingly positive response from listeners; 
"I really look forward to the next 2 parts online! I must admit I really enjoyed listening to it from start to finish it was very interesting and I learnt a lot about Asian number stations in particular." Jordan, Northern Ireland.

"Superb documentary on this mysterious subject. For those who don't know anything about this topic, it should be an eye opener, indeed. Anyway, I really enjoyed this part and will listen to the others on your site. Top notch work that I would say was of the quality that would have been presented on the all time greatest DX program, the old Radio Nederlands' Media Network with Jonathan Marks. Slap yourself on the back!" Al, New York, USA

"Good program about this subject. Was very interesting, especially the stations from China that you show at last." Claudio, Chile.
