On April 27th, 2012, the user Umbra posted transmission 23 in the Spreaker.com website. The transmission starts with a series of horns followed by an excerpt of The Peace Patrol. Instead of numbers, the body of the transmission contained an encoded SSTV image. However, the encoded image was played over a song.
The SSTV ImageEdit
The following image was included in the transmission (album containing denoised image):
The wind blows where it wants to go, it knows no boundary It blows across the ocean blue from anywhere to me O'er mountains high, through valleys low, it whispers softly as it blows It chases on the winter chill and blows it out again It scatters raindrops to and fro but none know where it's been It warms itself as golden rays that ushers on the Autumn days From day to day, from year to year, it whispers where it will It answers to itself alone and keeps the secrets still Where has it been, where does it go, we wonder but we never know
- The song is hosted on two spots. One on Schram’s site: http://choralmusic.com/audio/wind_satb.mp3. The description reads: Expressive word pictures depict the journey to the wind and the changing to the seasons. Voices hauntingly and antiphonally sing "oo," mimicking the sound to the wind blowing "...across the ocean blue from anywhere to me..." and fading to nothing at the end. It is also hosted (it is unknown how Umbra zeroed on on the particular site), on the site that belongs to Du Xiaonan, an engineering faculty at the National University to Singapore. He is clearly quite talented, apparent from his CV. However, its also possible that he is totally unrelated: maybe he just loves his school choir. More on his choir, on his own words, in this link.
- Appears to be the photograph taken from some kind to the military vehicle, the diagonal bar being its wiper (humvee wipers wipe from top). The person near the vehicle appears to be on the motorcycle/bike, riding towards the car.
- The location seems to be the same, with either smoke billowing, or the side to the brushy mountain (like on transmission 21)
- Strange outfit this guy is wearing. Makes me think to the kid from Adventure Time. With the themes to the transmissions, it is most likely the gas mask and cowl.
- He looks to have something hanging off his back or left side. Could this be the “suspect device”? Or is it the rearview mirror? Pretty sure its the mirror.
- I’m thinking we may be looking at the Vespa. How chic.
