Men in Black Vans: Step 3
“Use the tracking device.” Pickup the tracking unit beside the laptop.

If you get the quest incorrect, you will spawn a Draug boss. Kill it (or drive it off) and it will reset.
The Orochi Group is a mysterious organization. If you played the Tokyo flashback, you witnessed what was happening near the Orochi tower. They are a central player through the entire Secret World story!
In our guide to Dead Air, as with all of our TSWguides.com spoilers, we use spoiler text for the juicy parts. Simply look over the text you want help with and solve it, without spoiling the rest of the quest.
The Radio Mast is a large antenna, atop the control tower. Use the ladder to climb up.
Dead Air: Step 2
“Examine the Radio Mast.” Examining the radio mast updates to “inspect the serial number.”
The number is at the bottom of the antenna. It is a Manticore 3881999.
The quest updates to “source the components to repair the mast.”
It turns out that Manticore is part of the Orochi group. Go to www.orochi-group.net and choose Manticore from the companies menu. At the Manticore menu, choose products. You can look up the mast using the search term “mast” or the serial number. The text reads: “The cyclone series is specifically designed for remote area installation and maintenance. No cranes are needed, sections of lightweight and provisional materials can be carried out without recourse to specialized parts and labour. Primary components: bracket, anchors, antennas, lightning arrestors. Provisional repair materials household adhesives, conductors and amplifiers.
Grab a number of pieces and return to the antenna (quest does not update when you pickup the last piece) It only updates when you return to the antenna with the pieces.
Dead Air: Step 3
“Listen for transmission.” Click on the antenna and receive
Dead Air: Step 4
“Decipher the coded transmission.” The image below is the pattern you heard in the video (image captured by Cescasa at.
The actual code is: -.. .-. — .–./.-.. — -.-. .- – .. — -. / –… .—- ..— / ….. …– -…. (slashes are word separators). You can use a morse code translation program to conduct the translation, or you can just use our handy solution: DROP LOCATION 712 536.
Now that you figured that out, time to go check out that drop location!
The drop location is in an area just south of the airport, near the coastline not far from Kingsbridge. It is a rocky outcropping with a small pond in the center of the rocks. This is about ¾ of an inch south of the D in Dunwich Road.
Dead Air: Step 5
“Open the crate.”
As you approach the drop location, you see a helicopter make a drop. Two mercenaries have to be dealt with. While the airlift box is lit up and open, but looks like the crate, it isn’t. The actual crate is in the middle of the water. Open it. A Quarantine Beast comes out and attacks. He is not an easy fight, he does two circular ground effect attacks you must avoid. The quest completes when the crate opens.
