Flip cam-recorded video of the very first numbers station that I was able to locate on shortwave.

The radio I used is a cheap Radio Shack DSX-350, AM/FM/LW/SW1-9 12-Band Portable Receiver. I had it set on SW Band 1 and the dial was at approximately 5.940.

I located this station just about ten minutes after midnight from my home in Seattle, Washington on Sunday, May 30, 2011. I had just finished listening to Radio Habana out of Cuba, and began dialing away from that station, when I heard this Spanish language number station with a female voice calling out strings of five digit numbers.

The audio is a bit distorted, but this was the best that I was able to keep the station dialed in, which is not bad, considering the distance and the cheap radio I was using!

At the end of this transmission, starting at the 4:40 mark, the voice says, "final, final, final." I have since discovered that this "three word sign off" is a characteristic of the Cuban V2A numbers station.

The transmission ended right at 40 minutes after midnight, PST.
