Hi Bryan,
this reminds me of the WWII wartime Radio Orange (transmitting from London), sending messages to the resistance in the Netherlands: ""The blue goat will eat at midnight", "The weather favors tulips this season", I repeat....."

Bryan Alexander

Yes! Do you know the numbers radio phenomenon?

Ton Zijlstra

Oh yes. As a kid I was very much into listening to short wave radio, and later became a ham radio operator. I remember writing down the numbers of such a station when I was about 10 / 11 yrs old, thinking to crack the code. This was during the phase that I guess every kid goes through, discovering and playing with different kinds of codes and ciphers.
