Nickname: Swedish Rhapsody
Emission mode: AM
Voice Summary: G02’s voice was generated using the Stasi machine, but usually manipulated to sound much higher than typically heard. If listened closely certain characteristics of this machine can be heard (such as the hard R in ‘drei’). Because of the pitch, to some, this station’s voice can sound like a little girl’s, and to others an adult woman.
Believed Country of Origin: Poland
G02 was one of the more prolific numbers stations. It had a stable schedule for its time and rarely ever had any errors in broadcasts in AM. G02 was also one of the few stations that never sent a group count, but always sent 100 groups to each agent identified. In the 1990’s it was replaced by a variant called G02a.
The triple message format of G02 has 2 additional messages and headers to those messages. The third message is also 50 groups long instead of 100. G02a differed in the way where there was a header (“1234567890”) in between the interval music.
