CYBERS 26.09.2023

UVB-76, also known as “the buzzer,” is one of those mysteries that has captivated both amateur radio enthusiasts and conspiracy theorists alike. It is a shortwave radio station with a mysterious past, originating from Russia and has been in operation since the late 1970s. At first glance, it may seem like just a monotonous buzz, but don’t be fooled – it’s not your typical radio frequency.

In the context of the Nordic-Baltic Security Summit, the KüberCAST podcast features Andrus Aaslaid as a guest. Andrus is an enthusiast in radio signals and signal analysis, dedicating years of hobbyist research to phenomena like UVB-76. His knowledge and expertise shed light on this enigmatic phenomenon.

UVB-76 is renowned for its persistent and endlessly repeating buzz, transmitted at a frequency of 4625 kHz. However, what truly sets it apart are occasional voice transmissions and coded messages interspersed within this uniform monotony. Over the years, UVB-76 has broadcasted several cryptic messages, always in Russian. These messages include numbers, words, and phrases, some of which appear to be encoded communication. The nature of these messages has spawned various theories and speculations about the station’s purpose. You can listen to some of Andrus’s selected examples here.

One of the most striking aspects of UVB-76 is its consistency. The persistent buzz, intermittently interrupted, has continued for years. This steadfastness has created a genuinely intriguing situation for radio enthusiasts and conspiracy theorists who eagerly await each interruption in the buzz.

Join us as we embark on a journey to uncover the secrets of “the buzz” with hosts Ronnie Jaanhold and Siim Pajusaar and guest Andrus Aaslaid. Together, we’ll delve into the depths of UVB-76, exploring its history, intriguing messages, and the mysteries surrounding it.
