The Radio is a convenient way for personnel to consult each other and warn about dangers. Similarly to talking in the 'Local', 'Telepathy', and 'Emote' channels, you can talk in the various Radio channels. Each channels has it's own color and your message is only broadcast across the specific channel you're talking into. Each department has a specific radio channel to allow private communication from members of that department.

To be usable, radio channels needs a working telecommunication server with the corresponding encryption key in it, otherwise you won't be able to talk in it. Handheld radios are exempt from this as they use a special frequency that doesn't require any encryption keys.

You can only talk on radio channels your headset is authorised to communicate with. You can examine your headset to see what departments you're authorised to use.

You can 'collect' more access by acquiring encryption keys from heads of departments or other headsets using a screwdriver.
