Item #: SCP-3272

Object Class: Thaumiel

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-3272-1 is to be blocked from all inhabitants of Roanoke Island, under the guise of a “termite problem”. One (1) active Scrantron Reality Anchor is to be present. Only on-site faculty with Level-5 access are allowed to study SCP-3272-1 through SCP-3272-3. All faculty members below Level-5 clearance are allowed information concerning SCP-3272 on a need-to-know basis.

All non-faculty individuals retaining information gained by SCP-3272-3 are to be administered Class-A amnestics and temporarily relocated off the island until an “all-clear”1 is called. As of yet, SCP-3272-3 is uncontainable.

Description: SCP-3272-1 is a radio tower that is six hundred (600) meters in height. The exterior of SCP-3272-1 is hidden by SCP-3272. SCP-3272-1 transmits an anomalous radio frequency that has been classified as SCP-3272-3.

SCP-3272-2 is a memetic hazard that renders all viewings2 of SCP-3272-1 as an eighteen (18) meter tall member of Pinus virginiania (Virginia pine) with the word “Croatoan” carved into the trunk.

SCP-3272-3 is a radio frequency that emanates from SCP-3272-1 broadcasting between the hours of 7:00 A.M. to 10:00 P.M. SCP-3272-3 affects all radios on Roanoke Island. The contents of SCP-3272-3 consists of emergency alerts, warnings, and reports concerning various K-class scenarios.

Addendum 3272-01: Discovery
SCP-3272 was first discovered in ██/█/197█ when a local news outlet published an article titled “Mysterious Broadcast Plagues Island.” Class-A amnestics were immediately administered to all citizens currently populating Roanoke, and were immediately relocated off-shore until personnel successfully located SCP-3272-1.

Addendum 3272-03:
The following is an excerpt from a speech given by Dr. ████ concerning the implications of SCP-3272 at the 1999 Foundation Summit.

It’s very difficult for me to stress this about SCP-3272: its own existence is proof that our time isn’t that difficult to bend. Now, of course, there are many SCPs the Foundation has contained that is also proof that time is an easy medium to mess with, but SCP-3272 is something different. When the first broadcast was ever transmitted from it, a paradox should have occurred. That’s the logical explanation. But, in my years at the Foundation, logic has been out the window more times than one. We’ve used Kant counters there: there’s clearly some minor alterations to the Hume field, nothing too big, but it’s still illogical. What happens when the disaster is stopped?
I believe that, whenever we prevent a scenario from occurring, whichever timeline SCP-3272-3 was broadcasting from, is destroyed. It happens every time and will happen every time. But it’s for the greater good. It’s just Croatoan Protocol.
