    Sorry if this is in the wrong section or hastily typed.

    UVB-76 is the callsign of a shortwave radio station that usually broadcasts on the frequency 4625 kHz (AM suppressed lower sideband). It is known among radio listeners by the nickname The Buzzer. It features a short, monotonous About this sound buzz tone (help·info), repeating at a rate of approximately 25 tones per minute, for 24 hours per day. The station has been observed since around 1982.[1] On rare occasions, the buzzer signal is interrupted and a voice transmission in Russian takes place. Only three to four such events have been noted. Despite much speculation, the actual purpose of this station remains unknown.
    I've been monitoring the transmission for several hours, after what sounded like a television or radio was placed close to the mic, and objects could be heard falling near the mic.

    Several minutes ago, UVB-76 transmitted a sequence of Morse code signals.

    I'm uploading my recordings now.

    You can listen here: http://uvb-76.blogspot.com/, or listen to the broadcasts on Justin.tv: http://www.justin.tv/rampageturke/#/w/339155344/2

    Edited:

    Here's some of the recordings I've gathered over the past few hours:

    http://filesmelt.com/dl/recording1-21-47-len.mp3

    Start time: 02:31 PM Eastern
    End time: 02:52 PM Eastern

    Here's the morse code transmission: http://filesmelt.com/dl/trans3morse-03-33pm_eastern.mp3

    Recorded at 3:33PM Eastern; the actual transmission begins around 2:45 in the file. Also notice the beep just before and immediately after the morse code transmission.

    August 23, 2010 9:35AM PST Voice transmission confirmed

    I hate to pour more oil on this fire as there are steady 60+ listeners on stream already, but streamer arhive recordings show that the August 23. voice transmission is genuine and has happened! Please find the recording here.
    Most received it garbaged, as the transmission was taking place almost entirely on upper sideband (USB), as most of the normal UVB-76 transmissions are. (Although it is not pure USB, as the carrier is present).

    Link to confirmed transmission

    So now we have official confirmation.

    Another transmissions were received on the 25th of August:

    There was a transmission earlier this summer as well, I was lucky enough to hear it. Should have recorded it, didn't think about it at the time. I think it's mentioned on wikipedia.

    Packing up my bug-out-bag now. I've also loaded the Gun and Fueled up the car. I've taken from now until September off from work. A theory on the internet is obviously true so I am preparing for the worst.

    Yes.

    There's been at least three other reported incidents of irregular activity.

    I've gathered there was an odd disruption in the normal behavior of the transmission (odd background noise, some morse code, ect.) It's been confirmed that the sound is being fed into a mic, hence why other noises that are clearly personnel of some sort can be heard from time to time.

    Eh, if NK uses nuclear weapons China would never side with them. But if it was conventional warfare, then China very well could. Unless China knows that NK was set up and that it was really the US who detonated the bomb, well, then of course China and likely Russia would ally with them.

    Anyway, the conspiracy above is of course bullshit.

    The damn honking noise is interfering with the code.

    Also I suck at Morse code. Someone decipher it and post the Russian words and I'll translate.

    If this was so top secret I am pretty sure it would be on a more secure line rather than a broadcasting tower free for everyone to listen.

    Yeah I am 100% sure this is nothing important.

    Presumably the frequencies nearby aren't in use or someone nearby might be transmitting and you're picking it up by accident I know I used to pick up the local repeater though my speakers every now and again.

    You can be nowhere near and send it out as long as you can slightly overpower it.
