An interesting E25 transmision with an exciting ending

And another surprise from E25!

The transmission began at 1214z on 9450 kHz, with the song "Inte Omri". Then at 1217z, the mechanical young lady, in a faster-than-usual pace, was calling "830 3 835". Then a message to 835 followed:

830 3 835

835 (repeated)

"Message" x3

1020 5555 x19 (an unusual message)

"Repeat"x3 (fast)

"End of message, end of transmission"

Note that the pace was a bit faster, the gaps between phrases/numbers were a bit irregular and the endings of the number "five" were more abrupt than usual.

At 1226z the message ended with the usual "EOM EOT" and then...the Windows XP shutdown sound followed! (And not Windows 98!) After this little surprise, the transmission ended.

Here is (nearly) the whole transmission (A part is missing from the beginning). The "rattling" sound is the digital station who usually interferes E25 when I use AM mode.

So E25 operators upgraded their OS? But yet, the quality of the transmission wasn't as good as expected!

The Buzzer sounds a bit different this evening

The Buzzer (S28) sounds a bit different today, having a higher pitch. This is a recording made today at 1909z, on 4625 kHz, with the receiver in AM mode.
