The twelfth release of ionosonde recordings is all about dub techno on a micro scale. Analog synthesizers were used in this album which explored the sonic wonders of the super high frequency (SHF) electromagnetic band where radars listen intently. This frequency range goes by the name "the Ka band" or Kurz-above.

Using only analog gear to produce the best sound quality as possible, Telegraphy recreates sounds that might be heard by a person who's in control of one of these radars. Atmospheric noise mixes with the steadily cycling "on's and off's" of the radar signal. These sounds are mimic by Telegraphy's synthesizers. Echo's from distant targets shows up on the view scope in the radar room, the same goes for Telegraphy as he echos his target chord in his audio control room.

With a computer only used as a MIDI source, Telegraphy produces ionosonde recording's best sounding album.
