I've been talking with the comm guys up on Rib Mountain some more. Like me, they're obsessed with figuring out Reaper communication methods.

It might have something to do with the assassination teams and the suicide plane the Reapers used when trying to kill Pete up here last year

06:16 AM #
In addition to wounding Pete so badly that he may never fully recover, several of their fellows on Rib died during the attack. #zompocalypse

So, now these guys have an incredible system going. They've got all kinds of radios and antennas listening for anyone on any frequency.

They try to identify Reaper communications, triangulate their locations, and gather scraps of information that might turn out to be useful.

In a sense, the Reapers have made their job easier. Their twisted, pseudo-religious language makes identifying their broadcasts easier.

06:28 AM #
The team is pretty sure, however, that we're rarely overhearing important messages. The Reapers must use additional methods we can't detect.

We just overheard a Reaper transmission repeated several times on an FM band. A scanner picked it up. It was some kind of code sequence.

11:35 AM #
The sender kept saying, "Reindeer, Wolf Sequence," before pausing and waiting for a reply, then repeating the phrase. We heard no answer.

11:38 AM #
The funny thing is, the frequency was not stable. It got slightly lower over the short time we heard the transmission. Then it faded away.

11:41 AM #
The comm guys couldn't triangulate it. They couldn't even get a good directional fix from the powerful antennas up here on Rib. #zombies

11:44 AM #
It's only speculation, but that message could have been meant for the Reaper team we captured. That would explain the lack of reply. #zombie

We have to admit, however, that it's possible the transmission had nothing to do with the Reapers. Well, the freqs are logged for monitoring
