Dr. Ellie Arroway, after years of searching, finds conclusive radio proof of extraterrestrial intelligence, sending plans for a mysterious machine.
The radio code used by Ellie Arroway at the beginning of the movie is W9GFO. The code used by the man she contacts from Pensacola, Florida, is K4WLD.
CQ, this is W9GFO. CQ, this is W9GFO here. Come back?
When Ellie calls in to Fish and Willie to alert them about the signal, the part of the room where they are sitting is dim, with no overhead lights on. Two seconds later (after we see Fish spring from his chair to use a PC in another part of the room), the overhead lights above Willie are suddenly on.
