In order to follow Hank Madigan's trail, the residents need to reach the top of the Top of the World. Problem is, a raider named Rose is unwilling to let them access the uplink chamber unless they repair the radio station for her.
- Go to the Top of the World to start the quest.
- Find the signal repeater schematic on Major Darion Jones' corpse at Seneca Rocks.
- Find an SMU-97 transponder at Horizon's Rest.
- Find an RCX01-A39 duplexer at 98 NAR Regional.
- Use a tinker's workbench to craft a signal repeater.
- Install the signal repeater at the National Isolated Radio Array.
- Divert power to the repeater.
- Return to the Top of the World and take the elevator to the observation level.
- Speak to Rose to complete the quest.
The player character cannot access the top level unless they repair the signal. One must travel to the Seneca Rocks Visitor Center and search the bodies there for signal repeater notes and a signal repeater schematic. Look for Major Darion Jones, in military fatigues.
The materials need to be collected next, including an RCX01-A39 duplexer at the 98 NAR Regional wreckage and an SMU-97 transponder at the Horizon's Rest. The transponder is located on the cliffs, inside the derelict airliner's pilot's cabin, on the wall. The duplexer is in the overturned red NAR wagon just next to the state route at the crash.
Once collected, one must combine the two at any tinker's workbench to create a signal booster. With it in hand, head to the National Isolated Radio Array and mount it in the auxiliary dish to the northeast. A group of robots will spawn. These robots are usually a group of Mr. Gutsies, usually either Lieutenant, Major, or Colonels. Several of the Gutsies may be legendary enemies as well, meaning that they will explode with the force of a mini nuke a few seconds after death. They also have ballistic weaponry that can down a player character in a few hits, even with power armor on, so those arms carrying their most dangerous weapons should be destroyed first to remove that threat.
After dealing with the robots, reroute the power, listen to Rose's broadcast now that she's able to send it all over Appalachia, and return to Rose at the Top of the World. She will let them up and allow them to "meet" Hank Madigan.
