In today’s update to Portal, something mysterious has happened, radios have appeared throughout the portal world… With some kind of encrypted radio signal.
In today’s patch notes it says
“Changed radio transmission frequency to comply with federal and state spectrum management regulations”
What could this mean? Well we here at the HardLine suspect it to be a secret encryped message detailing something to do with Portal 2.
Reddit user Koushiro posted regarding his efforts
Radios now appear throughout the game and have red lights on the front; when you bring them to particular locations, they turn green, count toward X/26 of the new “Transmission Received” achievement, and play a sound, either morse code or apparently random beeps. Sound files are in the portal content.gcf, files portal/sound/ambient/dinosaur##.wav
Edit: Also, they play a ridiculously creepy noise when you take them through the emancipation grid, dinosaur_fizzle.wav
Well according to the achievement list, no one has figured it out yet. Here’s hoping we are the first.
