Decoding Truth Seeker 5314 20

Truth Seeker has posted to say that he has a copy of the transmission sent by Thomas.

He invites us to decode the signal, and I know that this is usually what we as a community are good at.

Let's have a go and if you decode it let us know in the comments or email us at

Update: TruthSeeker posted on December 29, 2010

Sorry for the radio silence, folks, I took a little heat for that last post. Apparently the Freedom of Information Act doesn't apply to classified satellite transmissions. Who knew? But bottom line, we were able to break the story first and have since decrypted a fragment of the message. Score another one for the little guys. We may not have the processing capabilities of the DoD, but we were able to confirm the following:

"PREPARATIONS ARE..." (in some kind of cool "code" font)

It's too soon to start guessing what the remainder of the message states, so our computers continue to run decryption algorithms, hoping to illuminate it ASAP. If anyone has any spare computing power that they could volunteer, please let me know. We've already burned through 4 server blades, an old 3.46 gHz processor, and two RAID arrays.

Happy Holidays to all!
