Military Stations

Military stations use code words or digital transmissions to communicate.  These are often confused with number stations, but they are not.  These stations are for internal military use, not for sending coded messages to spies located in distant countries.  They also do not use a one time pad encryption.  Code words are usually meant to correspond to a command in a code book.
