    Radio and TV broadcasts without the Topsiders discovering them? Wonder how they manage to keep the signal that well confined?

    Ah, government stimulus program! ;-)

    The signal is in an enclosed space underground, nothing leaks out.

    As mentioned before, for a small enclosed space, a broadcast needs very limited power, so no risk of EM leakage to outside.
    And I just thought of something, regarding the potential weakness for detection of Endtown. Any real attempt to detect it via gravimetrics or seismic analysis could do so easily (though very clever technology could mask it from seismics) but I’d WAG that the Topsiders wouldn’t consider that Endtown is anywhere near that size, so wouldn’t bother to try that type of detection. They’d more likely consider it little more than a network of tunnels and little bunkers, difficult to find if buried to any real depth, so not worth the effort.

    Aaron are you a three stooges fan? And the radio over his head is likin to the one tormenting Al. Casual conversations should get more concerning in the next few weeks. Might even bring up cults in favor of and against, or discussion groups with popular Endtowners expressing their opinions. OH boy we have a lot of maybes here and even more characters we haven’t met yet. Looking forward to it. Thanks Aaron.

    as endtown is underground, space for an antenna is at a minimum, so it’s also safe to say that frequencies below our upper vhf band probably wouldn’t be considered. uhf would be possible, considering the directivity of the signal (practically line of sight) and how attenuated the signal is upon hitting barriers (i.e.-walls, tunnel roofs, etc.).

    then, theres catv…

    If Endtown was intended as a bombshelter, it may have been designed to prevent radio signals from leaking through to Topside.

    The bird type guy makes me think of Harpo Marx. was it the fluffy or curly light colored hair. So many cute faces around. Even a walrus is good looking here.

    And I just realized why they have radios instead of wireless hand-held feeds. Both Amesworth and conventional radiations would toast unprotected ICs. EMP is over-rated for individual bits of equipment, especially as there are all kinds of ways to protect circuitry, but rads directly attack high-density ICs and Ghod-only-knows what Amesworth might do. Tubes or early generation transistors are really robust against all but really massive rad rates.

    If the radio bands are AM only it would be contained in Endtown only.

    I thought of Harpo Marx, too. And the walrus was…Stan. Oh well. Actually, Algood may have already won. Most of the people I have seen are still as human as ever, From Al & Gustine to Algood & Velda.

    Yes I see a look like Harpo Marx. It is the hair, hat and my imagination. I am glad that others saw it to. I could not remember the name until I saw others posting about it.
    .
    A good layer of earth and stone with any decent amount of metals in it wold reflect any radio waves back into endtown. Well any radio waves that it does not just absorb.
    .
    Re-bar reinforced concrete or other wire mesh in the ceiling would help with that.

    Certainly going to be quite the show put on. Considering the defendants didn’t break any laws per se, it really is going to be a farce. But, possibly a farce that will set precedent.

    I was thinking Stan and Ollie.
