A model 2043B Radio Communicator, from the fine people at Wattz Electronics. Dependable, rugged, and camouflaged. With the optional RS-121 interface.

The radio is a miscellaneous item in Fallout and Fallout 2.[1]

CharacteristicsEdit

In Fallout, the radio can be used to cause a diversion among the super mutants patrolling the outer northern regions of the Mariposa Military Base, allowing easier access to the base's interior. Attempting to use the radio in other locations elicits a squeal of unintelligible static. It can also be linked with the computer that controls the force fields within the military base to gain remote control over them.

In Fallout 2, a unique broken radio is required to help Vic repair Metzger's radio in order to free him from the Slaver's Guild. Other than that, the radio is a useless item, but it can be sold for a good amount of money.

Behind the scenesEdit

The mentioned RS-121 interface is a play on the real-world EIA/TIA-232 serial interface commonly known as RS-232 (each digit decreased by one.)
