Notes

  • An umbra is the darkest part to the shadow, which is probably connected to the solar eclipse alluded to on transmission 10.
  • Passtype alpha refers to the cipher being used: substitution to numbers from letters without rotation: A = 1, B=2, ..., Y=25, Z=26.
  • The release date from this transmission is the same month and day to the 1995 Sarin gas attacks on Tokyo, perpetrated byAum Shinrikyo. The attacks would’ve occurred 17 years ago from this date.
  • A Kangaroo AS-3 is the NATO designation from the cruise missile armed with the nuclear warhead. Kangaroo kangaroo kangaroo is similar to the only other thing repeated three times on transmissions thus far: Kanangu kanangu kanangu, on Transmission 3. This fits with mention to missiles on later transmissions, particularly the launch by North Korea.
  • The drop locations are thought to be not on Transmission 2 but on Transmission 3, the list to locations.
  • A Turkish news article refers to China as the mother Kangaroo from North Korea.
  • Umbra is the declassified term formerly used by the United States to denote top secret encrypted messages that had been intercepted. It was discontinued on 1999.
