Now even I’m thinking this is some sort of game, or challenge, or even an elaborate prank. But I said I would continue following these numbers stations until someone figured them out.
Last Tuesday, a message appeared on Lubbock Craigslist asking “For Mein Fraulein” to “Call me.” You probably know where this is leading by now.
The message in the Lubbock (Texas) missed connections section of Craigslist, posted July 25 at 1:19 am, read:
For Mein Fraulein
Our rendezvous was noted. Perhaps a more intimate venue would serve. I trust in your discretion. Call me.
806 //// 224 //// 0272
I should note that this actually appeared two days prior to the previously noted message on 414-386-1377, but for some reason, I wasn’t made aware of it until today. (Thanks fader!)
On calling the number, the expected happens: a few seconds of A-ha’s Little Black Heart, followed by groups of numbers read twice (MP3). This message transcribed:

The telephone number is owned by Grande Communications, a provider of telecommunications services in Texas.
With at least eight messages now, someone should be able to crack this. I’ve got a wiki page available for collaboration as well.
Now this is driving me nuts. What’s in these messages? Do I have to drop everything and spend a weekend of time I don’t have on this? Come on!
