Use It in the Form of a Sentence

An example of the term used in the last entry is probably needed, now that I think about it:
Numbers stations are an example of a parapolitical instrument, partially because their use is so mysterious. For instance the German station, known as "Swedish Rhapsody," which broadcast in the voice of a young girl. It was thought the Cold War would bring an end to these broadcasts but new stations are arising in the post-9/11 age. And a new one, apparently transmitting from the Southwest US and known as "Yosemite Sam", that begins with a brief data burst followed by the phrase "Varmint, I'ma Gonna Blow Yah T'Smithereens!"The clip is apparently from the cartoon "BUNKER HILL BUNNY", 1949 (pic to the right). This is repeated ten seconds later on the next highest of four frequencies. "Transmissions always start at an offset of 7 seconds, such as at 10:00:07. The timing of the transmissions seems to be excellent." (If this sounds like fun listening, you may want to consider the Conet Project. Though it was released before the debut of "Yosemite Sam") The FCC isolated the origination point of the broadcast as being near Albuquerque, New Mexico, but so far have been unable to offer any other information. "Yosemite Sam" went off the air on December 23, 2004, but returned during February 2005, on its old frequencies plus additional new frequencies, including those of time signals stations WWV and WWVH. Its origin and purpose are still a total mystery.
