I was bored, so I recently decided to just rip TU’s audio from the game. As I was going through listening to various things, I came across something interesting regarding the broken radio’s sounds. There’s a total of 4 files in here, but 2 of them have a very weird sound. Listening to it, you just hear a bunch of screeching and beeping. Then something stuck out about how they sounded. At the beginning of these 2 files, there was what sounded like some sort of… header. Like something that indicates the start of a code/message. Then it goes into the mentioned screeching until the end.
I did some research, and it turns out that this is something called SSTV (Slow Scan TeleVision), which can be used to share images across things like a radio. With the right program or app, you can decode these images. So, I did just that, I found an app on my phone, and put it next to the speakers on my pc. It took a moment before it could find the right mode to use, but once it did, an image started coming through.
Here are the results.
I’m not sure what the point of this all was, but it was a really neat find nonetheless.
