Morse sounds on my S20

Hello,

 

Since a few days I am getting morse sounds (the letters K T) broadcasted on my phone at irregular intervals. This morning they appeared about once per 10 minutes. 

I have completely reset the phone and reinstalled apps one by one today, and once again I get these morse sounds every once in a while. 

Any idea what this could be?? I thought I was hacked or have a virus? But my virus scanner says all is OK.

I know you could have fun and convert text into Morse Code on the G Board keyboard, maybe it's some Accesibility setting to help visually impaired people? Samsung even have an App for it called Good Vibes.

Could also be the letter Y which is K and T with no gap   :extraterrestrial-alien:

Well all Accessibilty settings are switched off, NFC is switched off as well. And I worked with morse code professionally long long ago, so I know it's a K and a T :winking-face:

Hehe non professional capacity here, hold a Class A Amateur Radio license, or as we're known here in Ireland, 'Radio Experimenters', sounds like an unusual issue, have no idea what could be sending out K and T at random, i assume it's just those two letters blasting out, at a loss if it's nothing to do with Accessibilities.     :thinking-face:

@Jeroen020 , I've seen a few users saying they've been getting weird Morse code sounds recently - and across a range of Galaxy phones (S7, S9, Note10). Some users have identified the Khaleej Times app as being the potential culprit e.g.:

Unsure if it's the same for you.
