The Coherent Static NPC broadcasts numbers in certain frequencies of the /talkie chat channel.

Observed Chat

A single number or word is spoken every ten to fifteen seconds. Apparently it always spells out a sentence and then gives another frequency. It is not known if there is a pattern to the broadcasts, eg always starts at a particular time on on a particular frequency.

Frequency 11.1

"twenty eight five fourteen five twenty-four twenty twelve five twenty twenty five eighteen twenty-five fifteen twenty-one one eighteen five nineteen five five eleven nine fourteen seven nine nineteen fifteen two five two one point five"

Numerically, this is "20 8 5 14 5 24 20 12 5 20 20 5 18 25 15 21 1 18 5 19 5 5 11 9 14 7 9 19 15 2 5 2 1 . 5".

With A=1, B=2, ... Z=26, this works out to be:

THENEXTLETTERYOUARESEEKINGISOBEBA.E

Which is easily interpreted as:

THE NEXT LETTER YOU ARE SEEKING IS O 2521.5

Frequency 2521.5

No text was captured on this frequency.
