Signal Papa November is a transmission from a broadcast tower located west of Charnel House.


The signal is activated with a switch on a transformer at the base of the tower. The source of the signal is located within a drainage chamber located to the northeast of the tower, through a northern gate, at the base of a small cliff face. Right next to the ham radio is the skeleton of a woman, a pre-War book and a copy of Pugilism Illustrated.
