It seems like all of the numbers are dead again and have been since September 8th.

I called the 888 number last night and it did the usual 3 rings, but then had DTMF tones (as if it was transferring me) and someone picked up and said "Kinda early". I turned my mic on to try and talk to them, but there was never an answer, so I hung up. Unfortunately, I did not record this. I tried about 15 times to see if I could get this to happen again, but never did. However, I did get this message on there eventually:

About 9 minutes of nothing but numbers being read. I transcribed them here:

It seems like the 661-565-**** number is unrelated and an actual person doing their own research. (Why they left their own phone number is anybody's guess.)


A new message that TonyTee on IRC found.


Message 19
Emtanon Radio. This one is seven minutes long


(male voice) The next sound you will hear will be a one-thousand hertz reference tone.

The reference tone will be approximately six seconds in duration, and will be followed by a 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 countdown, and a standard announcement.

While listening to the countdown, press the pause button immediately after hearing the number one. This will place the tape at the optimum position to dub the recording of the standard announcement.

(00:26) (lazily drifting 1000hz sine wave plays, with two clicks at 2 and 3 seconds in) 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

(00:40) (male announcer) Rise and shine boyos. 8 o'clock, and another great day at Emtanon here. Damn shame no one can ever know, right? (laughing) Ah nah but seriously. If you do tell anyone, well... you remember what happened to Robert [likely Robert Bramble].

Lunch in the cafeteria today is gonna be chicken nuggets. C'mon over when you got a few minutes. We'll take care of ya. Don't miss The Adventures of Agent Bouerges, the latest in our very own radio drama.

(01:07) Anyway, here's a little something picked out by the big man upstairs himself. (music starts playing) Ah, now this is music. You've got Emtanon Radio.

(01:07 - 03:37) (Tiptoe Through the Tulips plays)

(03:38 - 07:05) (Fly Me to the Moon plays)

I just received a call from 661. I was sleeping (which seems to be the only time OTP22-related numbers call me), so I wasn't able to easily step into SE mode. So instead I just listened quietly. The call lasted 2 minutes and 58 seconds, until I had to hang up because I could hear the damned loud af neighbor children coming down the street and knew their voices would carry on my phone. The DEFINITE same woman said "Hello" (said, not asked) three separate times. In the background, she or someone near to her was flipping through pages of a magazine or phone book. Some kind of pages which sounded very lightweight (like newspaper or bible pages or phone book or some magazines, for example). I have not yet called back.

For reasons, I have redacted the number given. Feel free to join us on the IRC channel for the number.

I have not called the number, nor have I been in IRC lately to see if anyone else saw or called. I will say that my CNAM lookup shows it as an unregistered cell phone assigned to Sprint Spectrum.


Indeed! Here are recordings for posterity.

L0j1k has some information on this I'll edit in later.

Message 18
A vaguely-TTS-like voice reading off a phone number. I've censored the number and recording here as well until it's confirmed to be an in-game numer.


(female voice) 661-565-████

They are now back and are exactly the same as before, so I guess now is as good a time as any to record them (well, soon™ ...)

Weird how they vanished for a while, different instance of the system?

Yeah, just checked, messages 13 through 16 are definitely deleted. At least we have recordings of the one that was interesting.

It appears as though PM has removed your message, Xkeeper. Also, "What is life" message is gone too.

Last message now is the one where the lady tells dude to just read the message.

Message 15
This is a message I left that day. I used a text-to-speech generator to do it, and the way I did it ended up capturing the start of the recording-start beep.


(beep) This is a test message. Please ignore. Thank you.



Message 16
Today, at some point in the afternoon (my time), a new message was added:


(sound of coughing/throat clearing)


It isn't much, but it's new.

New voice system appeared on the original "Material Order Desk" (MOD) number, 888-854-2402, after many months of inactivity. IRC user bobdamnit received a call on his personal cell phone from that number on Saturday, August 26th, at about 3 PM his time. (He does not have voicemail and did not notice the call, so he does not know what the call would have contained.)


It's a voicemail-like system identifying itself as the "Emtanon Message Board".
If you call this, please don't leave messages.

I recorded all the messages that are on it as of today (2017-08-27 17:37 PDT):

Main menu

Starts with a dial tone. This isn't the same dial tone as when calling; phones will show the call is connected and the volume is different.

Welcome to the Emtanon Message Board. To listen press 1. To record press 2.



Voice menu

You get this after a message finishes playing.

To go back, press 4. To go forward, press 6. To replay the current message, press 5. Or to head back to the main menu, press star.



End of messages

You get this after the last messages finishes playing.

End of final message.



Main menu: invalid entry

On the main menu, pressing a button other than 1 or 2 will play this.

Invalid entry.



Thanks message

Unknown what causes this (I got it by just pushing star a bunch on the main menu). After this it goes unresponsive and hangs up after a few seconds.

Thank you for your call.



Now for the actual messages...


Message 1


(female voice) This is a test of the AS fifty-four voice response unit.



Message 2

This appears to be one of the Emtanon history entries.

(Male voice w/ music) The year was 1969. President Richard M. Nixon was sworn into office. The first draft lottery since World War 2 was held. And an ambitious young doctor working for the state department founded a small company as a side project. That was Emtanon, a marriage of skill, luck and financing with brilliant leadership at the helm, and no end in sight. What Emtanon does may not be clear, but one thing certainly is: whether in secret or open, the future of America is in good hands.



Message 3

This appears to be another one of the Emtanon history entries. First logged Oct 28, 2015.

(Male voice with Sentimental Journey music) By the 1970s, Emtanon was well on its way to becoming an industrial superpower. From shortwave radio, to server automatic toll ticketing equipment, business was booming. But where did it all go? Right back where it came from. The young doctor never forgot his roots, and helped change the state department for the better.



Message 4

This appears to be another one of the Emtanon history entries. First logged on June 11, 2016.

(Male voice w/ music) In the early 1980s, a rare moment of calm struck the industrial empire, as the young doctor found love, and a son to call his own...
(Music changes to mystery-suspense) But conflict reared its ugly head, as the young doctor discovered his wife's other love: none other than the KGB. Fearing the worst, she fled the United States, leaving her life, and her child, behind.



Message 5

This appears to be another one of the Emtanon history entries. First logged on Sep 3, 2016.

(Male voice w/ foreboding music) The cold unforgiving fog of war looms down over Emtanon, as the Russian conflict rose to its peak in the mid 1980s. With few left to trust, and even fewer idle moments, the young doctor all but disappeared. Gone but not forgotten, he directed the wartime powerhouse through his printed word, delivered daily to those hand-picked under his watchful eye. Sound (?) as he was, the message was the same as it had always been. What Emtanon does may not be clear, but one thing certainly is: whether in secret or in open, the future of America is in good hands.



Message 6

A possible recording of radio station KXL. The 85 year comment would place this at least in 2011 if not later.

(Announcer) KXL. Celebrating 85 years of broadcasting.

(Narrator) The year was 1970. As the Vietnam war raged, an American Legion convention was set for Portland. Governor Tom McCall lured young people away from the city, and possible confrontation, by staging a rock festival. It was called "Vortex", held at McIver State Park.

President Nixon widened the Vietnam war into Cambodia in 1970.

Kent State University in Ohio, National Guard soldiers shot and killed four students. It was known as the Kent State Massacre.

18 year olds got the right to vote that year.

The Apollo 13 spacecraft experienced an oxygen tank explosion on the way to the moon.

(Recording) Okay Houston we've had a problem here ... Uh Houston we've had a problem

(Narrator) The three astronauts narrowly avoided death.

(with Beatles music in background) Also, Paul McCartney stunned music lovers in 1970 by announcing the break up of the Beatles

With a KXL History Minute, I'm Dave Paull.



Message 7

Emtanon radio jingle.

(male voice w/ audio jingle) This is Emtanon radio.



Message 8

A recording of Standing on the Corner, a song from 1956.

Lyrics

Standing on a corner watching all the girls go by
Standing on a corner watching all the girls go by
Brother you don't know a nicer occupation
Matter of fact, neither do I
Than standing on a corner watching all the girls
Watching all the girls, watching all the girls go by

I'm the cat that got the cream
Haven't got a girl but I can dream
Haven't got a girl but I can wish
So I'll take me down to Main street
And that's where I select my imaginary dish

Standing on a corner watching all the girls go by
Standing on a corner giving all the girls the eye
Brother if you've got a rich imagination
Give it a whirl, give it a try
Try standing on a corner watching all the girls
Watching all the girls, watching all the girls go by

Brother you can't go to jail for what you're thinking
Or for that woo look in your eye
Standing on the corner watching all the girls
Watching all the girls, watching all the girls go by



Message 9

A song that's been used before, I think?


Message 10

Some sort of jingle.


Message 11

"KKM50" radio channel slogan.

(Male voice with music) From the skies of today to the prospects of tomorrow, this is KKM50, the voice of freedom. Broadcasting on standard allocated carrier frequencies of 6.97 and 8.11 mhz, providing the voice of hope, reason, and purpose to Emtanon employees across this great nation. Inquiries regarding these transmissions may be directed to the proper authorities. Please refer to your WORM guidebook for more information.



Message 12

A mis-take of the above.

(Male voice without music) (Clears throat) 52. 3. 2. 1. From the skies of today to the prospects of tomorrow, this is KKM50, the voice of freedom. Broadcasting on standard allocated carrier frequencies of 6.97 and 8.11 mhz, providing the voice of hope, reason, and pur-- (laughing) ... Jesus Christ, who wrote this thing? (snickering) It's like, don't suck your own dick too hard, am I right?

(Female voice) (sigh) Just read it.

(Male voice) Right.



Message 13

About 9 seconds of silence with a single click around the 7 second mark. I only include it because it seems to be a message.


Message 14

This sounds like a recording from a phone, due to the low quality.

(Male voice) (sigh) It's days like these, that... I think to myself. What is life, really? You know? In essence, what is life? I'd like to know your answer.




There are no more messages at this time, and there doesn't seem to be a way to advance through them without mashing the 6 button.
