    Failing that, one could use, for example, the existing catalogue of
    Numbered Radiograms used by amateur radio operators for
    communications when normal phone/internet links are not available.

    So F9001 could be ARL ONE, which is "Everyone safe here. Please
    don't worry."

    I don't know if other less specialized catalogs of numbered phrases
    might be available for use in such a system...
