Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid Keter

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX-1 is to be blocked from all inhabitants of Roanoke Island, under the guise of a “termite problem”. Only on-site faculty with Level-3 access or higher are allowed to study SCP-XXXX-1 and SCP-XXXX-2.

All non-faculty individuals retaining information gained by SCP-XXXX-2 are to be administered Class-A amnestics and temporarily relocated off the island until an “all-clear”1 is called. As of yet, SCP-XXXX-2 is uncontainable.

Description: SCP-XXXX-1 is a radio tower that is disguised as a member of Pinus virginiania (Virginia pine) with the word “Croatoan” carved into it that transmits a radio frequency that has been classified as SCP-XXXX-2. The tower itself is approximately the same height as the average Virginia pine (18 meters), though it is unknown if this contributes to SCP-XXXX-1’s anomalous properties.

SCP-XXXX-2 is a radio frequency that emanates from SCP-XXXX-1 broadcasting between the hours of 7:00 A.M. to 10:00 P.M. SCP-XXXX-2 affects all radios on Roanoke Island. See Incident SCP-XXXX-Alpha. The contents of SCP-XXXX-2 consists of emergency alerts, warnings, and reports concerning an unknown XK-class end-of-the-world scenario.

Incident SCP-XXXX-2-Alpha: On ██/█/20██, SCP-XXXX-1 was reported broadcasting SCP-XXXX-2 on every radio station in the world. Site-7, Site-26, Site-52, and Site-70 reported that all radio stations were broadcasting SCP-XXXX-2. However, according to field agents, all radio stations located in public areas only aired static between 7:00 A.M. and 10:00 P.M.
