I am doing a minuteman quest name Taking Independence and it wants me to power up a radio transmitter. I built a small generator and attached the cables, but it doesn't seem to work. Any advice?
The radio transmitter requires 10 power to turn it on. A small generator only produces 3. You will need 7 more power to turn on the transmitter. Either build 3 more small generators and attach them all together, or build a different type of power source. As long as the total power reaches 10, you will have enough. After you have enough power, activate the controls to turn on the transmitter.
