The radio is a Fallout and Fallout 2 item.


The 2043B model Radio Communicator from Wattz Electronics is a large, sturdy communications device designed for use by entities requiring a device that can take a beating and still function within the specified parameters. The typical 2043B came with an olive green camouflage paint, a short range antenna (with a range of at least four miles),[1] and an RS-121-compliant interface (optional in most radio communicators).[2] The ubiquitous radio was a versatile device and could be paired with other units to remotely control compatible devices, eg. forcefield networks.[3]


The radio is a trade item and nothing more. The player needs a specific broken radio to give to Vic. The normal units can be safely sold off.
