Before we move to the logs and other newsletter content we repeat the piece on V15 with good purpose but read on after. If it was thought this is a common book code sight of the following imagery page 7 and explantions passed to us by member Detlev who is a known expert on. the STASI and allied agencies proves this as anything but. You ll recall the article from the Times newspaper as well as the interception by Moomin both are worth a read again with reference to the images we post here. Kim brings back spying by numbers,Richard Lloyd Parry Asia Editor. July 21 2016 12 01am The Times, http www thetimes co uk edition world kim brings back spying by numbers dhhphbzdh. Kim Jong Un s regime has resumed the practice of spy radio broadcasting sequences of numbers in the middle of the nightLee Jin man AP. They were one of the enigmas of the Cold War sequences of meaningless numbers intoned with great solemnity over shortwave radio frequencies containing. coded messages for spies and sleeper agents Now North Korea the land where the Cold War never ended has revived the craft of spy radio. The South Korean government reports that after a 16 year hiatus Pyongyang has restarted the sinister late night broadcasts The reason behind it is a mystery Does. it indicate a new effort at infiltrating agents into North Korea s many enemies Or is it just a mind game intended to sow suspicion and confusion. The latest broadcast was made in the early hours of last Friday and presented itself as an exercise for distance learning students At 00 45 in the morning a female. voice said in Korean Commencing now I will give review work for the subject of mathematics under the curriculum of a remote education university for. exploration agents of the 27th bureau, She went on On page 459 number 35 on page 913 number 55 on page 135 number 86 on page 257 number 2 The broadcast continued in the same way for. 12 minutes, If it is not a homework assignment for conscientious North Korean maths students the message may be a book cypher The recipient agent wherever he or she is. notes down the references which pinpoint letters or words in a specified book and spell out a message. Such broadcasts originated in Europe in the Second World War and have been used all over the world In 2010 similar messages broadcast in Chinese were. detected in Taiwan the breakaway island that Beijing claims as its own. According to South Korea s ministry of national unification which is responsible for matters relating to North Korea it was the first such broadcast from the. North since 2000 when the leaders of the fraternal enemies held their first summit. The warming of relations that accompanied the talks was one reason for the broadcasts ceasing but with the rise of the internet it also became easier to send. coded messages by email The advantage of a radio broadcast however is that unlike a written message that can be found it betrays no link to its recipient. Numbers broadcasts have been on hold for quite some time but have recently resumed something we think is very regrettable Jeong Joon Hee of South. Korea s unification ministry said, We can t speak conclusively about North Korea s hidden intentions behind the broadcasting But we urge North Korea to desist from such outdated practices and.
seek ways to improve the relationship between the Koreas. http www thetimes co uk edition world kim brings back spying by numbers dhhphbzdh Thanks E. With the perusal of the documents their content and training messages we demonstrate that the recently heard V15 slight variations is not a book code and owes. more to the commercial system used by financial houses Bentley s Second Phrase Code. North Korean Encryption instructions Password Instruction Sheet and on second sheet Do not worry DVeisleben2016. This is a translation by Detlev s Korean student of a small section of these instructions See page 7 also. Korean GeheimDienst pad Notes on Encoding and Decoding per Detlev s Student. 1st page left column,Amho table O,Nausa table X, 1 The Amho table is used to initially convert the original clear text into a series of numbers. 141 The present,108 Legality,175 Business, If there are no words in this table the words in the clear text Ed have to be converted to numbers using consonants and vowels present in the table. Example Kor characters 322 692, The numbers must be in groups each group contains 5 numbers. example with number groups and Kor characters below. Win now legally and start the business You may like to check trans with your student Ed. 2 Nausa table The Nausa table is used to encode the number groups created from the original clear text. 1st page right column, For reports the Nausa table is used for transmissions. Example Start above first group in a box, End below 2nd group in box on next line The word weg on the next 3 groups means Discard.
2nd Example 2 rows on groups apparently to be added. By this method the encoded text can be transmitted to the centre. The other number groups 3 groups must be cut out and burned and for the subsequent text the next row is used. 3 Decoding, When the coded message has been received it should be compared with the first and second groups of the previous coded message If both are the same it means. repeat and emphasis,2nd page left column, For decoding of the encoded message the Nausa table is used A number group first group of each line has to be found that corresponds to the first group of the. encoded message,Example First,66900 last,Secret encoded message. Example 2 rows 77865 66900,27589 Nausa,18617 14000. Kor characters,strengthen the training of the officer.
2nd page right column,Method for undecodable text,1 If no first number group can be found. 2 If half of the text cannot be decoded,3 If part of the text cannot be decoded. Thanks to Detlev who provided the material and all translators Korean one Detlev s one Paul s and to STAINED GLASS who provided the final. translation from German STAINED GLASS One has to do things professionally in these matters.

Number or part 6202 Table for password DVeisleben2016. In both instances we consider the words Codeword and Password to be synonymous. Perusal of the above page 6 and comparison with sheet 6202 suggests how the code sent can be decoded I was told the Korean language consists of syllables. each represented by its own character For instance look at the last full square horizontal run of 2581496730 itself a somewhat random train of numbers and see. the descending train 13 14 19 17 11 15 10 16 18 12 also random. The square has 100 squares product of 10 Consider square produced at the intersection 13 and 7 That syllable means accomplished Clearly this mirrors the. old style and rather voluminous specialist telegraphic code books used by banks and industry to facilitate a secure transfer of events Further examples were sent. by Detlev via STAINED GLASS for which one interesting entry 38 1 read South Korea Another 84 8 read Radio and 59 6 Seoul. One example of the specialist telegraphic code books is Bentley s Second Phrase Book as featured here. Thanks to Detlev STAINED GLASS and my Korean translator who must remain anon Note the translations by Detlev s and my own translator were consistent. in their interpretation, Former North Korean operative reveals secret spy tactics. By Paula Hancocks CNN,Updated 1052 GMT 1852 HKT May 22 2015. http edition cnn com 2015 05 21 asia north korea spies. Seoul CNN Looking at the poison pens and torch guns you would be forgiven for thinking you were on a James Bond set But these weapons are real and are still. part of the arsenal of North Korean spies, Agents from the most isolated country on Earth are not a thing of the past said one man who claims his job once was to infiltrate South Korea on missions for the. Kim regime, Chosen for the job while still in high school Kim Dong shik told CNN he was sent to a specialized university for four years where he learned skills including. martial arts scuba diving how to shoot and rig explosives Only years later when he was fully trained was he told why he had been chosen. When I was told I was going to be a spy I felt stunned Kim said There have been many accidents in the past with spies A lot who were sent to South Korea. were killed so I assumed I d die, The physical training was only one part Kim said the psychological preparation was key.
We were taught to be ready to die for the Kim regime and if caught to make sure we were not taken alive he said. Kim was shot by South Korean officials in 1995 while on a mission in Seoul so was unable to commit suicide he said He claims his entire family was executed. back in North Korea as punishment for him not fulfilling his destiny CNN is unable to independently verify Kim s claims as North Korea is one of the world s. most secretive countries,Life of a spy, Kim says his first mission to South Korea in 1990 was to bring back a high ranking agent he called Lee who had been working in the country for some time His. second was to try to recruit those with anti government sentiments who may have sympathies towards the North. Back then he said he communicated with HQ via short wave radio One program from Pyongyang that aired at midnight had an anchor reading numbers he said. that was code to tell him his next mission He assumes methods of communicating are far more sophisticated now. How they re enticed, One former member of the elite Kang Myong do said North Korean spies are operating in countries across the world including the United States where he. estimates hundreds may be working at any one time One of their main purposes is to try to recruit Korean Americans who lean towards supporting North Korea. There are three different tactics they use he said First is to give them free visas to North Korea second to give them access to do business and make money. there and third they use women to entice them This tactic has been widely used since the 80s. Kang said he used to work in the Unification Development Division in 1984 One of the duties of this division was to send spies to the U S South Korea and. Japan he said adding that the division still exists to this day. He said spies and the human intelligence they provide play a big role in maintaining Kim Jong Un s regime It s a belief shared by Kim Dong shik who says. North Korea treats them very well Spies are treated on the same level as generals their education is to a similar high level So it s fair to say North Korea. considers spies as very important, http edition cnn com 2015 05 21 asia north korea spies. Note Excellent video with this newscast from CNN,Thanks again to all concerned with this piece. Number Station logs and analysis, As expected number station schedules have moved to their winter frequencies which means lower frequencies where the local RF interference from.
local consumer electronics is more of a problem Loggings worthy of a mention include a S06s on 9 132 kHz heard on Friday 4 November with the. no message format appeared to be a one off and not part of a schedule. The Thursday and Friday E06 and G06 schedules in the UK evening time continue as a general rule to start well before their presumably nominal. H 30 minutes start time On several occasions a quick burst of music has been heard after the voice has stopped perhaps evidence of a computer. controlled system no doubt someone more computer literate than me will be able to confirm it. The HM01 mixed mode station continues despite the recent death of Fidel Castro no winding down of Cuba s espionage communications so far. Reception in the UK is very variable sometimes the 0800 UTC transmission on 9 065 gives reasonable copy on the days when that schedule is used. but then becomes weaker a few days afterwards, V02a has made several decent appearances and V26 and HM02 have been like logged. No sign of the long established Tuesday Thursday polytone station XPA Schedule e this is not believed to have closed and an update of the relevant chart will. indicate this,Morse Stations, All frequencies listed in kHz Freqs are generally 1k.

M03 III ICW some CW, No reports The number of transmissions decreased dramatically during 2015 leaving only the 4505kHz 4828kHz schedules on Mon Wed Thu Sun.
respectively The two remaining schedules for M03 appeared in January but apart from a report from Ary AB of a weak transmission on 04 February no further. transmissions have been heard or reported since Missing now for a year From the next issue M03 will no longer be included in this column.

M08 continued unabated on its usual schedules over the past two months following its return in early September Transmissions continued as normal around the. time of Fidel Castro s death on 25 November Some transmitter problems were noted specifically at the end of October not reported in the last newsletter on. 08 November when the audio was repeatedly cutting out resulting in only 0 4 seconds of audio every 3 seconds. Of note on 31 October two of the call ups began with the same digit 6 this is a very unusual occurrence given our understanding of the number sequences in the. call ups On 30 December at 1400z all three call ups ended with 2 this is also an unusual occurrence On 31 October and 31 December apparent test. transmissions repeating 12345 67890 were heard V02a was heard mixing with the 2000z on at least 9 occasions Some of the weekend schedules started very late. at least 20 minutes after the hour but started at the beginning of the transmission rather than coming up in progress.

The spacing for each transmission was 10 minutes between each of the frequencies which has been seen before but not with this intense scheduling. The format would suggest that the transmissions were most likely tests to find the best time slot using this frequency set at various times.
