This is one of the best MetaFilter threads ever. It's along the lines of something that would be featured in Damn Interesting and it's about shortwave Numbers Stations. They're high frequency radio stations controlled by governments that broadcast data, either numbers, words, sounds, morse code or noise that is used with One Time Pads by secret agents to recieve messages. I've spent my whole day researching this stuff and it's fascinating. You can download or listen to The Conet Project, which is a series of recordings of these signals here, there's also a book in PDF form. This guy's site has tons of resources about numbers stations.

Hmm, I need a radio icon.

That is fascinating AND spooky.
