Signal Papa November is a radio transmission being broadcasted from Broadcast tower PN in the Capital Wasteland.

Activating the broadcast[edit | edit source]

The broadcast antennae can be easily found if you start at Smith Casey's garage and go north-northeast up the hill to the military checkpoint and tent with a sentry bot and follow the road leading to a fenced area which contains the broadcast tower. The electrical switch is found on the transformer beside.

Drainage chamber[edit | edit source]

This is one of nine broadcasting drainage chambers. Within the drainage chamber are several food items, a pre-War book, medical brace, motorcycle gas tank, motorcycle handbrake, two lawn mower blades, purified water, a copy of Pugilism Illustrated, and the usual ham radio.

Morse code[edit | edit source]

The Morse code translation of the broadcast is:

-.-. --.- -.-. --.- -.-. --.- -.. . / .--. -. .--. -. .--. -. -.-
CQ CQ CQ DE / PN PN PN K

This translates to "Seeking all stations, this is... Papa November... Papa November... Papa November... Over." It is emanating from one of nine encoded broadcasting stations.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

Papa November was a real spy radio station used by West Germany during the Cold War.
