Numbers stations and the covert operations that surround them have tried to maintain their secrecy for years, yet can now be accessed from the comfort of your armchair.
As for a numbers station using one of the 10kW SW transmitters, this is unlikely or impossible when you consider that the low power SW transmitters and their not very efficient antennas would get less far than the 140kW transmitters that were used by the Stasi secret services in the GDR.
The stations are basically broadcasting a secret code and at first sound or sight they appear to be a random set of Numbers harking back to the realms of schoolboys secret agent games, days of home-made invisible ink made of lemons, and simple codes with Numbers corresponding to a letter, decipherable within minutes.

 Explanation
In assigning station numbers, no distinction is made between partial-record stations and other stations; therefore, the station number for a partial-record station indicates downstream-order position in a list made up of all types of stations.
For water-quality stations equipped with electronic monitors and digital recorders, the record consists of a daily maximum, minimum, and mean values for each constituent measured and are based upon hourly punches beginning at 0100 hours and ending at 2400 hours for the day of record.
The complete eight-digit number for each station, such as 06642000, which appears just to the left of the station name, includes the two-digit Part number "06" plus the six-digit downstream-order number "642000." The Part number designates the major river basin; for example, Part "06" is the Missouri River basin.

Descriptions of the tide station data that were used to determine the operational MHW elevation for each zone are given in the "Notes" section, as are details on why the particular boundaries for each zone were chosen.
Stations marked with a dagger (†) are ones whose elevations for MHW and MHHW above NAVD 88 were calculated using the Mean Tide Level (MTL) Method, which assumes a constant elevation of MTL above NAVD 88 (-0.14 m) along the coasts of New England and New York.
Station names marked with an asterisk (*) are near-open coast stations: ones that are not fully located on the open coast but were needed to fill gaps where few or no open coast stations were found.
