"Be not afraid. We are peaceful". Sure, fellas. That's not how every ambush plot in every movie ever happened. No thanks.

Do you remember when Covid hit? Like, REALLY hit? When we all went into lockdown away from friends and family, and then things got weird? Like "aliens exist" weird.

Aliens and UFOs are no strangers to Montana. Heck, you can even buy a book about it right now on Amazon for the low price of $18.63, but I'm not here to sell you anything. I'm here to tell you that some super strange broadcasts are being picked up around some of Montana's more rural areas, that coincidentally aren't far from our massive Military base that houses a good handful of human species-ending rockets. Do I have your attention?

According to one Reddit user, Fickel-Ad5971, they received the following message broadcasting at 1.6877gigahertz in the Monarch, Neihard, Milligan area of Montana. For those of you who aren't familiar, those towns are fairly close (in Montana miles) to Malmstrom Air Force Base in Great Falls.

Call sign Verda. Break. I will strengthen you. I will help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand. Do not be afraid as I bring you tidings of good tidings of great joy, which will be to all people. Be not afraid. We are peacful  -Ham Radio Recorded Audio

This type of thing isn't a new occurrence to Montana or even around the world, so don't freak out just yet. Secret broadcasts set in intervals with creepy, coded meanings have been used by government agencies across the globe. Have you heard about the super creepy Russian ghost radio station that has been broadcasting the same message/signal outside of Moscow for years? It could be a world-ending countdown clock, a way for spies to interact, or even an elaborate prank.

Someone in Wyoming picked up the same message on the same frequency and captured the audio. You can listen to the transmission audio recorded HERE. 

Now if you know anything about HAM radio, picking up the same audio/signal isn't that far of a stretch. You can pick up signals from anyone almost anywhere on the globe with the right equipment and "know-how".

The question remains: "Who sent the audio, and why"?

As of right now, it's anyone's guess, but the Reddit user did schedule an outgoing message to the same signal to be broadcast on December 23rd at 6 pm in the same area. That message will say:

You know us. We know you. We are like you. We lived among you. Embrace us for we mean no harm. We are like you but with fur. We are like you but with canines also. We love you. Please love us.  -upcoming radio broadcast response

I never thought I would say this, but I do hope it's aliens. With the tensions between major military powers going on across the globe, it's sad to say that our best option with this whole outcome is aliens and not nuclear war. Stay tuned for an update. Let's hope they reply with something nice and positive like free concert tickets. You know, just like your real favorite radio station that doesn't broadcast cryptic end-of-the-world messages.
