2. for the morse... I think it was mentioned previously that the first bit could be 'TIME' .. The second bit could be "TEST'
The third bit is puzzleing... TA?

3. Come on, guys. You can do it!

4. Well, operating under the principle of Brady's clue, I don't believe the morse code is morse code. What caught my eye was that two of the patterns were identical:

_...._

and

XooooX

If this is a simple substitution cipher, then we have six letters, with two being the same. I already threw my idea to Brady that this was actually his name - mOscOw.

He did not respond favorably.

Maybe you guys can interpret this differently?

I thought "Count R" was a clue to count the letter frequencies, so I did. The letter frequency in this array matches English almost exactly, which means that this is a real message. All we have to do is to figure out how to unscramble it, or relayer it, or turn it... Just a reminder that the map's orientation has nothing to do with the puzzle.

Maybe this will help spur some discussion.

5. It really is as simple as 1, 10, 11.

6. Using a binary interpretation, I get this:

Code:
```       38    33     5

33

19

77```

7. I picture you sitting back, gleefully rubbing your hands together.

Oh well, have a TV date to watch Heroes with Spouse. Hopefully someone will solve it while I'm gone. (This insanity must come to an end; too many late nights )

8. Since it looks like my proposal about binary from last week wasn't that off, I will share another idea that so far hasn't given me any positive result but maybe someone will use it and get the answer.

We have 6 numbers, 3 in a row and 3 in a column around the puzzle. If we pull letters from the text according to those numbers we might get a word to use as a Vigenere keyword. Brady said in the chat that a grid would be useful. Unless one uses a decoder for the Vigenere cipher, a grid with the alphabet is useful for this kind of cipher.

9. Using the numbers above the text 38-33-5, counting from left to right from top to bottom, the letter in the 38th position is an S, from that s the letter in the 33rd position is an N and the 5th from there is an R.

Using the numbers on the left, counting in columns from top to bottom, left to right, the letter in the 33rd position is an I, from there the 19th is an E and the 77th afterwards is an S.

Those 6 letters spell a couple of words, but the one I like better is SIRENS.

So I am going with that as my first possible answer, although I am quite certain that it is not what Brady wants us to find.

10. Looks like base 2 is definitely in this mix (esp. after that clue, lol).

But do you really think it is Vigenere? Frequency analysis shows the block as English, I was thinking some sort of transposition.
