For another myth in GTA V, see Blaine County Numbers Station.


The Mount Gordo numbers station is a possible myth in Grand Theft Auto V. Similar to the station reported in Blaine County, this radio station can be heard late at night near the lake at Mount Gordo.

The myth was originally posted by the Reddit user Konstrife, the user had claimed his friend had recorded strange noises by Mount Gordo requiring the use of an alien bodysuit. In the original thread the user posts a link to a youtube video uploaded by the user Danrox147 showing the myth.

So far it has not been confirmed and is currently being investigated.

Background

This section has been transcluded from the article Numbers Station.

A numbers station is a type of shortwave radio station characterized by unusual broadcasts, reading out lists of numbers, or incomprehensible Morse code messages. The voices are often created by speech synthesis and are transmitted in a wide variety of languages. The voices are usually female, although sometimes men's voices are used. Some voices are synthesized and created by machines, however, some stations used to have live readers.

In the 1960s, Time magazine reported that the numbers stations first appeared shortly after World War II and were imitating a format that had been used to send weather data during that war. It is widely assumed that these broadcasts transmit covert messages to spies. The Czech Ministry of Interior and the Swedish Security Service, have both acknowledged the use of numbers stations by Czechoslovakia for espionage, with declassified documents proving the same. With a few exceptions, no QSL responses have been received from numbers stations by shortwave listeners, who sent reception reports to said stations, which is the expected behavior of a non-clandestine station.


Myth

The number station begins at around 3:01 AM in the video, starting with a static noise over the radio followed by morse code and the reading of numbers in a distorted voice. The morse code has currently not been decoded but the numbers in the video are read in a sequential order as follows; "24 5 6 37 8 4 40". The purpose of these numbers has not yet been discovered. The broadcast quite possibly could be coming from the FIB or alien sources. It has been speculated the broadcast could be related to the FIB agents at satellite dishes located near Bolingbroke Penitentiary.
