     Frozen in the fall of 1984.

     Their vehicle was a two-person Commando Scout with 20mm turret. Their assignment was to check on cities in Zone 2 (Washington and Oregon). An uninformative radio signal woke them up in 2139, they traveled to Canada and were captured. The Airborne Regiment used the Scout against the Doom Riders in the 2139 and 2140 campaigns; the 20mm ammunition supply is down to a handful of rounds, and the tires are very ratty (the slightly undersize tires from R-12 and some caches are fitted currently). The reactor and electric motor have been removed from the Scout, and tested in various vehicles.


Standing Orders


     You expect 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 know that the Project has large amounts of "reconstruction supplies" stashed in various places.

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




     Their bolthole was east of the small town of Marengo in east-central Washington state.

     For security purposes, they only knew the location of their own bolthole and of the team's six supply caches. Their cache locations were written down, and also in the Autonav; the Canadians thus know all six caches, as follows:


  • CA12, north of Pondosa, in Siskiyou county. Not visited by R-44 or the Canadians.

  • OR16, north of Lehman Hot Springs, Oregon. Not visited by R-44 or the Canadians.

  • WA16:  north of Benge, in Adams county (close to the R-44 bolthole). Visited by R-44, but they didn't take much. Not visited by the Canadians.

  • WA19:  east of Nespelem, in the Colville Indian Reservation. Not visited by R-44, nor by the Canadians.

  • ND16:  south of Balta; visited and entirely emptied by the Canadians. Was Scout-focused, so provided 2 spare Scout tires.

  • NV16:  about 50 km WNW of Winnemucca, at the edge of Desert Valley; not visited by R-44 nor the Canadians.


Radio Frequencies


     The team is assigned ten FM voice communication frequencies:


  • channel 1:  52.2 MHz - Zone 2 common tactical channel

  • channel 2:  43.7 MHz - team primary channel

  • channel 3:  38.1 MHz

  • channel 4:  36.6 MHz

  • channel 5:  32.9 MHz

  • channel 6:  33.0 MHz - also MARS general

  • channel 7:  50.5 MHz

  • channel 8:  34.9 MHz

  • channel 9:  36.2 MHz

  • channel 10:  44.4 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)
