A VERY obvious recommendation, but essential nonetheless is THE CONET PROJECT.  4 discs of military coded radio transmissions, endless shortwave and distorted voices perfection.

On the same label is the somewhat similar Electric Enigma: The VLF Recordings Of Stephen P. McGreevy which is weird and minimal static radio disturbances... very odd sounding, ephemeral signals, it's recordings of Aurora Borealis interfering with radio.  Very cool if you can find it.

I've always been obsessed with military radio communication, like comm tower stuff between a pilot and the tower, a good example is all the radio communication in the student film version of THX 1138. Stuff like that, heavily distorted voices communicating in alpha numeric codes and terms I don't understand.

If there are any recordings out there of that stuff, I'd love to get a hold of them, even if it's just tapes somebody stole.

Nice piece of gear here:

Fuck I forgot to mention the Conet Project. Interesting recordings, but an even more interesting mystery.

Correct! I've seen Richard use it live. It's an old Houston Astros portable. I think they gave them away at one of the games years ago.
