This is found on the multiplayer map High Ground, it can be done in forge and custom game( not sure about Matchmaking).
What you will want to do is go left of the huge missile launcher at the back of the map to the computer room. You will find a computer with a radio below, It will eventually stop making static and morse code and play random Halo songs throughout the series.

It may take some time for the music to play, it took me about 15 min of just standing my the radio, but if you are lucky it might play sooner. Good Luck :)

Edit: Thanks to PRlSTlNE for confirming that this is also obtainable in online MP.
BudgetBallin360Unfortunately, this took me way more than 15 minutes of standing by the radio. I wound up falling asleep with the controller on, woke up hours later, and turned my console off before heading to bed. The next day at work, I saw on the TA site that the cheevo popped. I probably got the achievement during the 1st 15 minutes of standing by the radio and it probably didn't pop until hours later. Lol. Anyway, +1.

ChknFingrsI started a bomb custom game (default gametype), and I was making my way to the spot from the very back of the map (where Ghost spawns). I was about to pick up the brute shot and then I unlocked this.

I was nowhere close to the missile control; I wasn't even in the room yet. Just thought I'd add this in.

FiatimTook a lot longer than 15 minutes, that said it popped before the music started by about 10 to 15 seconds.

GhostWrexFor what it's worth, my cheevo didn't unlock until the Morse code started playing, about 2 minutes after I had heard the music.
Posted by GhostWrex on 27 Jul 15 at 23:14
sharknado523My brother and I got the achievement in 2-3 minutes around when the Morse code started playing.
Posted by sharknado523 on 11 Jul 16 at 02:30
Gloss666my cheevo popped after the morse code as well as those above after the music had played, but great guide +1 thumbs up from me
Posted by Gloss666 on 04 Oct 16 at 20:57
Ereaser NLGot mine within 10 seconds of standing by the right radio that started playing morse code. I was standing at the radio on the other side of the room first (the smaller radio) for like 20 seconds until I turned around and looked here.

ViciousSpear18Funny, I stood beside the radio for probably more than 15 minutes but I heard nothing. Decided to call it quits and the achievement popped while on the menu screen. Unexpected and curious...
Posted by ViciousSpear18 on 14 Apr 17 at 02:44
nemesis646I stood around for probably fifteen minutes, can confirm this works. +1.

(I'd recommend that anyone else doing this achievement do something else in the meantime; read, have a shower, grab something to eat, because this seems to take a long time for most people).
Posted by nemesis646 on 09 May 17 at 07:57
Tupper29Just got this. Achievement popped as soon as the Morse code started less than a minute after getting in the room. The music started a minute after that.

MorgurtTheRoundThis just popped for me at playing Heroic campaign on Tsavo Highway playing co-op with the Famine, Fog, and Tough Luck skulls active. No idea what happened, but I’ll take it!

UNSC Jon 117Seems the only thing consistent about this is that it's inconsistent - might just be the nature of the object, i.e. that it randomly plays static, Morse, music. My wife and I tried this co-op; I got it within 2m, she didn't. Left, made her team leader, tried again - nothing. Tried in Forge, still nothing. Dropped from team, STILL nothing. She had to quit and restart the game and go in solo before it popped in the first ~2m.

outlaw player05Took 30 seconds

Pure Pip RaptorTried it on Slayer and the music wouldn't start, just morse code. Started on Assault and stood by the radio holding the bomb and it started and unlocked for me after a minute.

HoggyBear08Popped this in forget today was waiting 3-5 mins.
Posted by HoggyBear08 on 26 Aug at 19:10
LaathsDidn't pop for me when I waited for like half an hour on the right side of the table. Once I moved to be standing right into front of the laptop (like I was going to work at it), it popped in 30 seconds.
