The Radio is a tool in ARK: Survival Evolved used to communicate with other players who have the Radio over long distances.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The Radio can be crafted at the Smithy. Using the Radio prompts you to enter a 1-4 digit GHz frequency. After doing so, talking in game over voice chat broadcasts to every user on the same channel.

Usage[edit | edit source]

The Radio accepts up to 4 digits on the GHz frequency and each frequency is unique. There are 9,999 possible frequencies to choose from (0 is not a valid frequency).

To use the radio it has to be in your action bar. It does not have to be equipped, just present in one of the 1-9 slots. Putting the radio back into the normal inventory will turn it off.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • When your voice is transmitted over the radio, it will add a "cool" filter over your voice.
  • The radio has a range spanning the entire island and is not affected by mountains, caves, or the presence of structures.
  • If the "voice chat" box is selected when entering the GHz frequency, your voice will not only broadcast to others with the radio but also to any players nearby.
