The origin of the signal is a ham radio inside a cave near the UFO crash site. Inside is a hostile alien with a ham radio and a toolbox. Outside the cave is the alien's crashed UFO, indicating the alien was transmitting a distress signal, noted by the alien's "frantic" speech.
- An alien blaster pistol can be found on the alien inside the cave along with 300+ alien blaster rounds.
The garbled radio beacon only starts broadcasting after reaching level 20.
- The radio beacon may not start broadcasting at all.
- If you kill the alien prior to extending the satellite, turning off the Ham radio will not make the signal go away from your Pip-Boy. This also happens if you had extended the satellite prior to the crash event.
- If you turned off the Ham radio before extending the satellite then it's signal will not be marked as offline on satellite display but will not be listed on Pip-Boy radio tab.[platforms tag needed]
