There'd be caps in it for you. I do like to hear what's going on in the world. And that Mr. New Vegas seems like such a gentleman.

Trudy's Radio Repair[1] is an unmarked quest in Fallout: New Vegas.

Quick walkthroughEdit

Unmarked Quest: Trudy's Radio Repair
Talk to Trudy and accept her offer to fix the radio.
Fix the radio with a repair check.
Ask for extra pay with a barter check.
Reward: Goodsprings fame
50 caps
10 XP
Reward: Goodsprings fame
75 caps
35 XP

Detailed walkthroughEdit

First of all, speak to Trudy, and ask her about the group of people who shot you. She will explain that they came into the bar a lot, and also knocked over her radio, breaking it. Ask to fix the radio, and she will let you, explaining how she'll pay you for the work. Go behind the counter of the Prospector Saloon, and activate the radio. With a Repair skill of 20, you can fix it. Otherwise, a Fixin' Things skill magazine can be used to raise your Repair skill, if needed; one can be found on the bookshelf next to the pool table. If you're able to repair it, report back to Trudy. She will then reward you with 50 caps. If you can pass a Barter check (20 Barter), she will pay you an extra 25 caps. You will gain 10 XP for fixing it, but an extra 25 XP if you pass this check.

Transcript noteEdit

Transcript

The radio at the Prospector Saloon in Goodsprings was broken by a visiting Great Khan. Trudy has offered to pay you if you can fix it.

NotesEdit

If you are unable to meet these skill levels, skill magazines can be employed to temporarily boost the appropriate skill by 10 (or 20, with the Comprehension perk).

  • There is a copy of Fixin' Things on a table/shelf/bench near the pool tables and the front entrance to the Prospector Saloon. (Must be stolen)
  • The most common in-game source seems to be random spawns inside mailboxes (of which there are several in Goodsprings).
  • They can also be found lying around in most of the homes and buildings in Goodsprings, (most will require that you steal them).
  • Both Chet (Goodsprings General Store) and Trudy sell skill magazines as part of their random stock rotation.
  • Despite Trudy mentioning her desire to hear Mr. New Vegas's voice again, the radio is actually set to Mojave Music Radio.
