Just a note: There is currently a bug in the game that causes radios to go out of sync. This means that they won't work correctly. All new radios in vehicles and ships start out out of sync. If you build one in a vehicle or ship, contact support and request them to manually re-sync the radios.
Please note that it is against game rules to post OOC messages on the radio.
A radio transmitter has a "use radio" button by it.
When you use this you can enter a message and set the frequency (one of 201) that you want it broadcast on. The message is then broadcast. Every one in the same location sees you speaking into the radio.
medium radio transmitter reaches 60 pixels.
long range radio transmitter reaches 90 pixels.
enhanced range radio transmitter and vehicle radio transmitter reaches 115 pixels.
extended range radio transmitter and ship radio transmitter reaches 150 pixels.
Everyone in the same location as a receiver in range and set to listen to the transmitter's chosen frequency hears the message. The speaker and transmitter are not identified; the message is along the lines of "you hear a radio message 'Mary had a little Lamb.'"
Made inside buildings.
Re-broadcasts everything it receives on the frequency it's set on. Useful if communication is desired between remote locations that falls outside the range of a single radio.
