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-????.

It is of note that standard Weatheralert model TA-20 weather radios contain a 16.2020UNI crystal, as does SCP-????. The crystal in SCP-???? has been swapped for another standard 16.2020UNI crystal to rule out the possibility of the crystal picking up another frequency. After replacement, SCP-???? continued to output the anomalous broadcast, ruling out it receiving another frequency.

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 12/07/2004 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.
