[Trailhead] Man in the High Castle - Resistance Radio

Amazon's got a kind of neat thing going on at ResistanceRadio.com, following three radio DJs in Philip K Dick's alternate universe where the Nazis and Japanese won World War II and split the USA in half.

Flip between the primary "resistance radio" stations, and there are three frequencies broadcasting Numbers Stations. Those stations are:

Spoiler (Rollover to View):
1700 kHz: Morse Code Numbers Station
1050 kHz: German Numbers Station
400 kHz: Japanese Numbers Station


Only managed to translate the station at 1700 kHZ, which seems to spell out the message:

Spoiler (Rollover to View):
Resistance Hiding Messages in the Frequencies (although I kept screwing up the transcription on the first and last letters of that phrase, so something more might be going on)


Haven't tackled the other two yet. Seems like those are the only "puzzles" to solve, but the radio broadcasts themselves are gripping enough on their own.

If someone can find a way to capture the audio of the german station, I'll translate it fully - I'm trying to write the numbers down 'live' but my brain won't translate as fast as she's speaking!

Sounds like coordinates though; a lot of the numbers are too big to reasonably be a word cypher, although they make a really big deal of the number three:

"The foundation is three"
"The basement is three"
"Damage(?) is three"

Now I'm thinking about it, all of the numbers I can hear are multiples of three...

If someone can get an audio clip, I can figure this out...

Got the full translation:

First, German into English:
Spoiler (Rollover to View):
6, 15
57, 63, 54, 15
60, 45
12, 54, 27, 42, 33
75, 45, 63, 54
39, 3, 36, 60, 15, 12
39, 27, 36, 33
3, 42, 12
69, 3, 60, 9, 24
60, 24, 15
39, 3, 42
27, 42
60, 24, 15
24, 27, 21, 24
9, 3, 57, 60, 36, 15
the basis is three (two times)
the foundation is three (two times)
the fundament is three (two times)


Next, the extract:

Spoiler (Rollover to View):
Divide by the basis/foundation/fundament of 3, then it's a simple alphanumeric cipher:

BE SURE TO DRINK YOUR MALTED MILK AND WATCH THE MAN IN THE HIGH CASTLE


That is exactly the resolution the puzzle needed.

The Japanese is similar to the German

EXCEPT THAT
Spoiler (Rollover to View):
It leaves out the word "Be", as in "Be Sure"

ALSO
Spoiler (Rollover to View):
The number that would normally be R in "To Drink" is 52, which divided by 3 is 17.333333 (repeating)
Edit: The number that would normally be L in "Malted Milk" is 26 which divided by 3 is 8.6666667 (repeating)

I'd listened to and checked the numbers in sequence to check.

I'd probably check the all the numbers and the Morse code to see if there are any letters or numbers that have weird inconsistencies and/or substitutions.
