Triangle Man, Triangle Man
Does whatever a triangle can

Het found some pretty cool signals. Specifically at 27 MHz, with azimuths 110, 150, and 347.5 from Nodes 1-3. It sounds a lot like talking. And it triangulates rather nicely (although not perfectly, zoomed in it forms a triangle of about 1/2 mile length on the long direction, but this is to be expected with the angles incremented to only 1/2 a degree).

EDIT: It centers over about N 44.16 W 103.32, or Blackhawk, SD according to my sources.

EDITED AGAIN: To add various missing words.

I use Cubase SX3, and Audition 1.5 (software for music recording/editing).

I gave the azimuth data to xnb, and he'll triangulate it later when he has time. (thanks xnb!)

The Triangle Man strikes again!

So, that cackling is coming from a triangle 20 Kilometers long (like 13 or 14 miles). It's center is N 39.68 W 104.88.

That spot is pretty much smack in the middle of Denver, Colorado...
And from this we are supposed to infer... what?

Dunno.. mark the 3 stations and the 2 signals on the map.

see if anything jumps out


for now its more information then we had yesterday
]

Also were you able to merge the 3 cackling signals into 1 file?

i think that needs to be hit with a signal decryptor, it's not random noise.

EDIT: no problem Smile We all get a little obsessive about these games I think. I just didn't want a potential clue to be overlooked in this.

For what it's worth- I fast scanned node 1 HF.

Here's what I did-

I opened node one, selected HF, went to 3 mHz, and using tabbing within the browser(click on the R Azimuth arrow, take your hand off the mouse, hold shift and press tab, that highlights the L arrow) and held space to scan quickly through the whole frequency. I did this for 3-30 and the only thing I found was what we already knew about- 8 mhz has static and 27 has garbled voices. Anyone care to do LF UHF and VHF, or the other nodes for that matter? 6am will be here soon, and I've got to rest before work.

Here's what I got mixing the three 127Mhz signals in Audacity.
Kind of a waste of time since they're virtually identical. But, in case I missed anything along the way. There is a little clipping in a couple of the louder areas as I was trying to pull something out of the mud.

Sounds like a war zone followed by some retro videogame sounds.

Soliders playing Pong perhaps? Razz

Dearther

Just to keep the group up to speed. Driz and I were looking into the word "Dearther". We found a few uses for it.
1. An Old English word meaning shortage or famine.
2. "Birth Dearther" used to describe a generation such as "Gen X".
3. A race from the Clive Barker book "Imajica".

I dont know if it's relevant but, there it is.

Dearther

from alphaDictionary: http://www.alphadictionary.com/goodword/word/dearth


Quote:

dearth

Printable Version Pronunciation: drth

Part of Speech: Noun, mass

Meaning: 1. Lack, deficiency, scarce supply, shortage. 2. Specifically, a shortage of food, implying famine.

Notes: This Good Word is the noun from dear, semantically gone astray (see Word History). As a result, there is, if you will pardon the expression, a dearth of this word's relatives. Dearthful was tried in the 18th century, when the word still meant "dearness, costliness". Dearther "someone who causes a dearth" was tried about the same time but, mercifully, was allowed to slip harmlessly into oblivion.

In Play: As Larry Brady once put it (I think it was in the Agora), "I wouldn't say Helen Beddoes was a gold-digger, but I thought I heard her say 'Until dearth us do part' at the altar." In fact, we might even say, "There is no dearth of good ideas about Good Words in the Alpha Agora."

Word History: Today's Good Word came down from Old English (OE) deorthu "expensiveness", the noun from the adjective deore "expensive", which went on to become dear. Dear is used in this same sense (expensive) outside the US, e.g. "The hat was too dear for me." As Adam Smith taught us, the way to keep prices up is to keep supply down, hence the current meaning of the word. The OE word came from the same root as German teuer, Russian dorogoi, and Serbian drag "expensive". (Speaking of which, Katy Brezger was a dear for suggesting today's Good Word in the Alpha Agora.)

Re: Dearther

LOL

So from that description the page means Mssng Smile

Looks like the theme is back!

we have a dearth on information as to how to proceed from here.

Sun god or no I think the name of the game is Mssng: What you don't see is the most important Smile

I have a ton of stuff going on right now so actively trying to solve some of this stuff has been difficult so i will continue to throw out ideas that hopefully lead somewhere....

Looking at Black Hills Radio and broadcasting in general it appears that the area is a bit unique. It sounds like it is very difficult to get stations as you drive through because of all the hills. At night on top of the hills however you can pick up stations as far away as Mexico. Because of this some stations use "repeater" stations to pick up the same broadcast in different areas on different frequency's. Not sure how it fits in if it does at all but perhaps this is why you get similar broadcasts on different stations on the dearther website.

Hey guys. No idea what any of this is about, all I know is that I got a PM yesterday asking for my help messing with an audio file, but you seem to have it solved.

For future reference, I can do it fairly well, so if it comes up again, don't hesitate to ask. =] Good luck.

Audioslave- not entirely true. We're still working on an audio file, trying to clarify it. I can't pull this particular audio file from the flash- so, here's how to get there. I'm sure you can probably cap it and work with it from there. It may be impossible to clear it up, but hell, it's work a shot.

http://www.blackhillsradiocontrol.com/node1.swf

Settings- bottom buttons, HF, Frequency dial- 27 MHz, Azimuth- 150.0. See what you can discover there, if you please Smile
