SCP-XXXX’s building as pictured after acquisition

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: The building containing SCP-XXXX has been retrofitted with a Faraday cage. SCP-XXXX is to never be connected to any sort of public electricity grid or device capable of transmitting information. Power for SCP-XXXX is maintained through a series of redundant power sources. Any device with wireless capabilities is forbidden from the building containing SCP-XXXX.

Broadcasts from SCP-XXXX are recorded through a laptop1 and watermarked with the date and time, after which a file copy is transferred onto a flash drive and transported to Site-15. Access to storage is restricted to personnel with Level-3 Clearance.

Failure of SCP-XXXX to broadcast as expected should be logged and reported. Should SCP-XXXX fail to broadcast for 36 continuous days, or should SCP-XXXX deviate from the established broadcast cycle, the head researcher is to be contacted immediately. Procedures will evolve accordingly.

Description: SCP-XXXX is an Emergency Alert System (EAS) encoder-decoder device2 produced by ████ ████████ ███████. Its hardware and software are in compliance with American emergency service standards, and is physically identical to other non-anomalous items of the same model. SCP-XXXX is contained in a building formerly used as a broadcast facility for WMAC, a radio station serving the Middle Georgia area, and as a Primary Entry Point station operated in coordination with FEMA and local authorities to broadcast emergency alerts to the surrounding area.

Instead of operating in concurrence with other EAS encoder-decoder devices, the object will receive and attempt to distribute tests and alerts originating from SCP-XXXX-A, a previously unidentified parallel universe. Broadcasts from SCP-XXXX-A are believed to have no effect on present causality.

SCP-XXXX garnered the attention of Foundation personnel after the object began to receive and distribute broadcasts from SCP-XXXX-A on 04/16/2012. Initial broadcasts appeared normal in nature despite warnings unique from the present universe. However, they later began to report anomalous events which grew in frequency, severity, and distance from consensus reality. These broadcasts ceased on 11/23/2016 after issuing an apparent ZK-class “reality failure” warning.

On 04/16/2017, researchers reported that SCP-XXXX had repeated its initial broadcast, and later followed up with other identical broadcasts which followed the previously recorded schedule. The current belief is that SCP-XXXX-A is stuck in a time-loop as a result of the ZK-class event. It is unsure whether SCP-XXXX-A has always existed as a separate concurrent universe, or if it was created on or briefly before 04/16/2012 as a deviation from the present universe.
