Very capable with the Project personal computer. Knows Spanish and a bit of Hebrew ("Just enough for my bar mitzvah."). His mother was Puerto Rican. Wears glasses (nearsighted).

 

     Frozen in the spring of 1985.

     Their vehicle was a machinegun-turret V-150 with 4 crew. Their default mission was a general "check on current population centers, industrial recovery, environmental conditions and the location of atomic detonations." They were awakened by an uninformative signal in 2137, and when they tried to make radio contact with the Project were actually in contact with the Airborne Regiment. They traveled to Canada and all 4 team members were captured.

     They do know a bit about the Foundation and the Purity Corp (they were active for a few weeks before being captured).

     Their vehicle is in the hands of the Airborne Regiment, in good condition; all of the useful ammunition stocks have been expended, and the fusion reactor is providing power to the Lake Louise facility. The Canadians have kept the computer and laser disc reader with the vehicle, since "local" power supplies are subject to voltage fluctuations, brownouts, outages, etc. The wheels were removed and sent to replace those on the R-44 vehicle, damaged in combat.

 

Standing Orders

 

     They expected to be awakened a very few years after the War.  

     The goal of the Project is the continued survival of human civilization after the War. The standing orders for every team are to:

    • assist the population in recovering in any way you can

    • reunite with the rest of the Morrow Project

    • survive!

     All the team members knew that the Project had large amounts of "reconstruction supplies" stashed in various places.

     In essence the plan was:  Recon teams would scout around, mapping the good and bad things; MARS teams would suppress some of the bad things, Science teams would look into and solve the other bad things.

 

Facilities

 

     Their bolthole was in California, in the coast range north of the Bay Area.

     For security purposes, they only knew the location of their own bolthole and of their team's six supply caches. The team was letting their computer and Autonav handle the detailed locations of their caches, which are known to the Canadian government, and two have been emptied:

 

  • CA36:  in the Mojave Desert, north of Morongo Valley

  • CA38:  near Panamint Springs, in Inyo county

  • SD06:  northeast of Usta, near Thunder Butte; emptied by the Canadians in 2139 

  • TX10:  north of Van Horn, in Culberson county 

  • CO40:  southwest of Virginia Dale; known to R-12, and emptied by the Canadians in 2139

  • CO49:  east of Como (in South Park), near the Tarryall River. 

 

     The team knows about the amount of information given above, without their Autonav.

 

Radio Frequencies

 

     The team is assigned ten FM voice communication frequencies:

 

  • channel 1:  32.0 MHz - Zone 1 common tactical channel

  • channel 2:  32.6 MHz - team primary channel

  • channel 3:  32.2 MHz

  • channel 4:  32.4 MHz

  • channel 5:  32.8 MHz

  • channel 6:  33.0 MHz - also MARS general

  • channel 7:  33.2 MHz

  • channel 8:  33.4 MHz

  • channel 9:  33.6 MHz

  • channel 10:  33.8 MHz

 

A couple of other important FM channels:

 

  • 34.0 MHz - Recon common channel

  • 31.0 MHz - Science common channel

 

     Note that changing these frequencies on their PRC-68 radios will require a successful Electronics skill roll if your skill is less than 40%; a failed roll (especially a fumbled roll) will result in channels not being usable. The PRC-70 vehicle/backpack radio is much more flexible; the HF band covers a lot of aircraft and marine channels, though it requires a long antenna to be really useful. 

     HF channels to watch:

 

  • 2.182 MHz:  international distress and emergency

  • 7.0 to 7.3 MHz:  the "long range" channels for the Project (one for each Zone, plus a couple of general purpose channels)

  • 14.06 MHz:  a common amateur radio channel

  • 26.617 MHz:  Civil Air Patrol common channel

  • 26.96 to 27.41 MHz:  CB radios on 40 channels. CB channel 11 (general calls) is 27.085 MHz; channel 9 (emergencies) is 27.065 MHz

  • 27.87, 27.92, 27.97 MHz:  US Navy-MARS (Military Affiliate Radio System)
