Item #: SCP-????

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-???? is to be kept in a standard Safe-class storage locker at Site-64, powered off.

Description: SCP-???? is a heavily modified Weatheralert TA-20 radio manufactured at some point from 1980 to 1990. Despite these internal modifications, no reason for SCP-????'s anomalous behavior has been discovered.

When powered on, SCP-???? continually plays audio belonging to the Bob and Kurtz Weather Channel, which is currently defunct. However, SCP-???? will receive recordings from the Bob and Kurtz Weather Channel created in 1981. No devices capable of storing these recordings has been discovered inside of SCP-????.

Before 09/12, SCP-???? will play audio consistent with the Bob and Kurtz Weather Channel on the same day, in the year of 19811. However, beginning on 09/12, several deviations have been noted in SCP-????'s audio playback, often referencing non-existent events.

SCP-???? came into Foundation possession on ██/██/2004 when Foundation Agent ██████ was browsing a pawn shop in ████, Washington looking to buy a new personal handgun. On his way out, he noticed SCP-???? in a glass case. Upon seeing it, agent ██████ asked the owner of the pawn shop what it was out of curiosity. The owner was unable to provide any origin of the object. Agent ██████ purchased SCP-???? for 15 USD.

SCP-????'s anomalous properties were not discovered until it was activated by Agent ██████, who noticed significant deviations in the weather reported by SCP-???? and the actual weather. During interrogation, the owner of the pawn shop was unable to provide the origin of the object.

I don't like this paragraph. I think it plays our hand too early. We shouldn't outright say anything; we should imply it in the logs.


Addendum: Audio Log ????-Alpha

I haven't been able to make edits recently, with life and all. Do you mind filling out this transcript? I have no clue how weather radios work, and I'll touch it up afterwards.

Sure. I'll start that when I have the chance.

Date: 01/01/1981

Bob: Hello there, everybody. This is Bob Heisen and Kurtz Smith, with another installment of the Bob and Kurtz Weather Channel.

Kurtz: First of all, let me be the first to wish a Happy New Years to everybody.

Bob: That's right, Kurtz. Happy New Year.

Kurtz: Today in America, we're expecting snow, snow, and more snow.
