Recorded Earlier Today: Cuban Spy Communications! Reply

Havana continues to communicate with its spies aground the world using low-tech, but highly effective High Frequency (HF) radio broadcasts.  Commonly known as “shortwave radio,” Cuban agents and their spymasters receive these broadcasts on a shortwave radio and then type the numeric groups onto a laptop computer using a special disk to decrypt the HF broadcast.

To listen to a agent broadcast intercepted by a shortwave radio operator earlier today, click here:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n67NBHpaDrQ
