Turns out I don't have specific data on my satellite, but the registration format suggests that it's a stationary micro-nuclear weapons platform. Tracking data appears to confirm this; the thing hasn't moved in the week I've been tracking it. Without a targeting platform at my disposal, sending an activation code would only cause it to drop a payload directly on top of this area. Not exactly what I'm aiming for, but I'll keep the codes handy just in case.

What a lucky break! I pinged an orbiting body successfully today. Registration ID is USDOD-21TXH, callsign "Highwater Trouser". I'll begin tracking it and cross-reference the registration information with the data I've got.

First attempts at atmospheric pinging returned negative. Considering that the motivators are still non-functional, it's going to be difficult to catch much of anything that doesn't pass directly over us. Still, I cannot rule out other mechanical failure. I haven't got much astronomical reference material with me, but maybe I can find an old chart and wait until a celestial body passes over to confirm signal. Of course, that may take years. I'll have to keep working on the motivators.

Finally got to begin on my work in earnest today. Dish motivators are offline, but I was able to input some basic coordinates and ping nearby satcom arrays to the southwest and east. There was some interference pinging the NN-03d array. Probably Radroaches or something making a nest in the dishes. It may be worth sending one or two of the mercs over there to clean it out in case I can use those towers to amplify my own signal.

There were dozens of military satellites in orbit, just from the old records I found in the ruins. There must have been hundreds before the war. If I can find just a few operational platforms...

Thanks to a little creative wiring, I was able to tap us into a power source. They're less common up here, but if you know where to look, there are still plenty of live power lines buried all over the Wasteland. For all their arrogance, they knew a thing or two about engineering before the bombs. I have to admit; it's remarkable that there's still power to be had after all these years.

Now that we've got all the power we'd want, I can bring our defensive turret online and try to get the dish motors operational.

Nothing says "equality" like a fistful of caps. I think these Talon Company mercs are about the most cordial smoothies I've met, as long as their boss is getting paid. Luckily, money's no issue; I've hoarded plenty of it up since before these guys' parents were knee-high on a Brahmin.

Of course, if I succeed in this, it won't matter how many caps any of these rat bastards have.
