E25 – Rebeat

E25 was first reported in 2000. It originally used live voices read by males, then used a very unique automated woman’s voice. Errors are common in E25.  From computer tones, to hearing the operators playing a computer game, to the transmission just screwing up in general.  The musical intro might not play, the transmission could also cut in and out a lot, or just completely stops.  They also might not send the right message to the right ID at times, and have also restarted messages before.

The music is usually from musician Umm Kulthum, but this can vary. Needless to say, E25 is in dire need of component, consistent operators (and perhaps a better voice).
