 The Sony ICF-2001D shortwave receiver (as a spy tool)
by Radio Latino 

 
A numbers station is a special type of unusual radio broadcast, generally on 
the Short Wave (SW) radio bands, reading out incomprehensible lists of spoken 
numbers or morse coded messages.The most common type features a female voice, 
reading long strings of numbers, generally in groups of five, often preceeded 
by a preamble and/or a series of musical notes. During the Cold War number 
stations were often operated from Eastern Block countries, such as 
Czechslovakia, East-Germany (DDR) and Russia (USSR) with their broadcasts aimed 
at spies and secret agents operating undercover in West-European countries. The 
agents were instructed to listen to specific SW frequencies at fixed days and 
times, often using a commercially available SW-receiver from brands like Sony, 
Panasonic and Grundig. The Sony ICF-2001D (called ICF 2010 outside Europe), a 
commonly available receiver, became really popular amongst the spies during the 
1980s.

The first microprocessor controlled travel shortwave radio ICF-2001 introduced 
by Sony in the year 1980 initiated a revolution in shortwave travel radio 
design. A high performance set had not anymore the size of a 6 - 10 kg suitcase 
with a carrying handle, but it came in a pocket book siced cabinet and looked 
like a giant pocket calculator. The ICF-2001 was the first shortwave travel 
radio featuring direct frequency keypad input together with several electronic 
memories and a liquid crystal frequency display. The ICF-2001D (called ICF-2010 
outside Europe) was the successor of this successful set and was improved in 
several ways to make nearly the perfect shortwave travel portable for many 
years. In the similar size cabinet, it was a completely redesigned shortwave 
receiver with very high sensitivity, good selectivity, a synchroneous detector 
for automated ECSS reception, a large number of memories, scanning functions, a 
clock with timer - an in some (non European) variants, it also covers the VHF 
Air Band. http://www.shortwaveradio.ch/radio-e/sony-icf2001d-e.htm
