E19 – The Irish Man

E19 was likely a short lived numbers station.  Only one known recording of it exists – from the ‘Numbers Racket’ CD in 1998.  This station was nicknamed the Irish Man, though it sounds like it could be an English accent.  The voice also appears to be automated.

E19 has the same message format as the KGB/FSB/GRU operator.  It’s origins are most likely Russian.
