    The CONET Project, published by Irdial, is a collection of recordings of transmissions from Numbers Stations. Numbers Stations are broadcasts of unknown origin that typically occur on Shortwave frequencies. Though their purpose and origins are unknown, many enthusiasts - especially those who had contributed recordings to the CONET project - believe these signals are coded messages used by intelligence agencies, for the purpose of communicating with spies abroad.

    Irdial has a free music philosophy, and encourage the free distribution of their recordings - so long as their recordings are distributed for non-commercial purposes. For this reason, I wish to share these recordings with any of the members of this forum who are interested. Irdial expects the following documentation to be included with their freely distributed material.

    "Yoiu are greanted permission to copy, and distribute the musical compositions and sound recordings on this album, provided this notice is included with every copy that is made. Distribution is allowed on a noncommercial basis only. If you obtained this by making a copy, and if you find value in this music and wish to support it, please send a donation based on whatever you thought the music was worth to the address given on this notice [sic]."

    For additional information about the project, and their free music philosophy, I will include links to both. I will also include a link to where you may download the CONET Project.

    Additional Information on the CONET Project: The Conet Project / 1111 / Ordering Information

    *A link to Irdial's Catalogue, and material: The Irdial-Discs Catalogue Freed!

    Hyperreal's mirror: Irdial-Discs A212 Version 2 - The CONET Poject can be found towards the bottom of the page, the title header provides a PDF File of its Liner Notes (Which is a 72 page booklet including essays, additional information about Numbers Stations and information about each recording). The tracks themselves can be found under the "disc 1-4" headers.

    *Note: Irdial's catalogue to its music is currently offline. For this reason, at the top of the page, Irdial provides mirrors to where you can download their material. In my opinion, Hyperreal's mirror is easier to navigate.

    If interested, and downloaded, enjoy these recordings which I find fascinating.

    I dunno, call me crazy but if they really are intelligence agency transmissions, I think that's not something I'd want to have on my computer.

    That seems to be one of the more popular concerns about accessing/have copies of Numbers Stations - but then again, the CONET Project was released in 1998 - and even then most of the recordings on the project were decades old. Some of the frequencies were no longer active by the time the CONET Project came out. Any information that may be included in the messages are decades old by this point - and that's even if you could even decipher the messages (Not a single one has ever been decoded - it is believed they use a One-Time Pad system). Perhaps the most interesting thing about Numbers Stations is that only one country has ever acknowledged the existence, or confirmed that they had used a numbers station (Czech Republic). While the concern is reasonable, I wouldn't be concerned over something like that. But aye, to each their own.

    Man you don't know my luck.

    Heard of FML? That's me, to a T.

    So I got this phone call from a police detective some years back, right. Said he and his partner were doing an investigation, wanted to talk to me about something.
    I knew I was in the clear so I said sure, set it up.
    They come to my house and start asking me some odd questions... about a Bank and how my finances were, asking about my sons birthday...

    Turns out, they were investigating me for a Bank Robbery.

    Why?

    Because I had been in that bank at some point prior, not as a customer but accompanying a friend. They went to the counter and I went to pee.
    They found (the only set) my fingerprints on the urinal flush handle.

    Really.

    I peed in a bank bathroom and got checked out by APD.

    These days, when I go into a bank- I touch NOTHING.

    If things like that are a typical occurence for you, and if I were you, I wouldn't even bother leaving the house. Then again, maybe that's a double-edged sword - supposing you'd probably be accused of squatting.
