Submission + - UVB-76 broadcasts new voice message. (blogspot.com)

Doug52392 writes: Following days of increased activity, the Russian numbers station UVB-76 has sent out a new voice transmission.

The transmission, sent out on August 23, 2010 at 9:35AM PST, recited the following in Russian:

"UVB-76, UVB-76 — 93 882 naimina 74 14 35 74 — 9 3 8 8 2 nikolai, anna, ivan, michail, ivan, nikolai, anna, 7, 4, 1, 4, 3, 5, 7, 4"

The station, believed to be a part of the former Soviet Union's dead man's switch system, has been continually broadcasting for over twenty years, and its purpose has never been fully explained.

Anything cut to length will be too short.
