Hey all, might be the wrog place for this but I have been finding Radar sites in Null Sec and unable to access these sites due to not having 'specialized equipment'? Are my skills too low? Is there a site that explains these sites exclusivly? Thanks ahead of time for the help. Regards Seth

You'll need a codebreaker fit to your ship and the hacking skill to go along with it. There is an intro to this with the career agents when you start the game.

There's also magnetometric sites that you'll need an analyzer for.

Is there any special circumstance on where you find these? I tried probing recently and 99% of the time I have just stumbled upon gas/mineral mining sites and wormholes, albeit wormholes are easiest to identify as they have no group even at 50% strenght.

Em, so what I am asking is, do these archaeological + hacking sites appear more in nullsec or lowsec than highsec? Generally I've been probing around 0.4-0.6 systems. Of course they offer greater rewards lower the system security, that much I know of, but I'm pretty miffed on spending time to train both skills to 4 and having nothing but 20 smashed trigger units to show for it :D

I find Radar and Mag sites in high security systems as well as low and null security systems. Those sites are tougher to scan down and having Astrometric Pinpointing and Astrometric Rangefinding trained up to level 4 would help a lot. Also you'll probably need Hacking and Archaeology trained to level 4 to access the cans.

High Sec radar sites are fairly easy to probe down, and really only frigates and maybe a cruiser spawn. An average High Sec Radar site will net you 5-10 mill, which isn't to bad. High Sec Mag sites (Archeology) tend to be crap and no one does them.

Out in null sec, the signatures are much harder to probe down, and they are MUCH harder to complete. Bring a battleship / heavy tank BC or a similar type ship to a Radar / Mag site. I have done 3 Radar sites today, and all 3 have been incredibly hard, at one point about 30 light missile batteries and 2 of the 2nd most powerful battlships, some frigates, elite cruisers. The rewards for a Radar site tend to be about 30-45 mill each, which isn't all that good. Mag sites in null sec tends to be where the real money is at. I have gotten T2 Rig BPC's worth 90+ mill, T2 salvage, and regular salvage. The difference between high sec mag sites and null sec ones is that the null sec ones give a lot more salvage.

As for their occurrence, I find that you see them more often in null sec because there is less people around. Only thing that affects their spawn rate is if you have an I-Hub upgrade installed. Also, having Hacking / Archeology 4 really helps a lot, and you will be able to access the cans at every site.

For a new explorer Highsec Radars are a nice chunk of change for relatively little risk.

Next time do 2Show info" on the Container and you see what you need to open it.
But Radar need generell Codebreaker module / Hacking skill.

radar and mag sites are very common within WH-space. Though, I can't vouch for their worth.
