UVB-76, also given the nickname "The Buzzer", is a Russian radio program that broadcasts intermittent buzzing sounds at intervals. Sometimes, other noises come from the radio station like a man reading names and coordinates. The stations purpose is unknown and information about where in Russia the station broadcasts is also unknown.

Known information[]

When it first started to broadcast is unknown. But is thought to start around the early eighties. Sometime during the late nineties, voices have started to be heard at random times. The voices where first very rare but became a more common occurrence as time went on. Example of the types of messages received:

"Ya UVB-76, Ya UVB-76. 180 08 BROMAL 74 ,27,99,14. Boris, Roman, Olga, Mikhail, Anna, Larisa. 7 4 2 7 9 9 1 4" - December 24 1997

The messages appear to be mostly in some type of code. The purpose of both the buzzing and the coding is unknown, and has sparked a number of conspiracies surrounding the station.

Possible explanations[]

Many theories have arisen to explain the station:

- spy radio station for sending out coded orders (most excepted, yet Russia denies its purpose)

- radio hijacking

trivia[]

There appears to be other radio stations with similar sounding names and a familiar pattern of transmissions
