The radio signal about the German supply ship's position is inaccurate for a number of reasons. 1) Voice radio was used for only very short range transmissions. Morse code was used for all long range transmissions. 2) It was actually quite easy to hear most enemy radio transmissions. Decoding them was the difficult part. 3) "Garble" was used for some land based voice communications, but not with radio. Messages were coded before transmission and the encoded message was sent. Despite all this, the de-garbled radio code was a common plot device in U.S. war movies of World War II. See more
