A North Korean short wave radio station abruptly returned to the airwaves last Friday after a sixteen year absence. The mysterious broadcast has South Korean intelligence agents scrambling to figure out what its message means—and whom the message was intended for.
The transmission, which began at approximately 12:45 on Friday, was made by an unnamed female announcer and began with, “From now on, 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.”
The announcer went on to say, “On page 459, question number 35, on page 913, question number 55, on page 135, question number 86, on page 257, question number 2…”
The string of phrases and numbers continued for another twelve minutes.
