you get bugger-all on mag / radar sites in hisec. On a mag site you may get around 20 pieces of salvage.

I only do em, because I find them while looking for wormholes.

When I do manage to track down an archeo/hacking site in highsec, I usually find something worth a few million ISK (6ish if I find a decryptor). However, I've found it difficult to *locate* these sites in highsec; they just don't seem to appear all that often, or they're being found and looted a lot faster than I can find them.

That said, per-hour, you may be better off mining. They may be fairly even, ISK-per-hour, in the end, but mining is way more reliable. The payoffs for a radar site are bigger, but they get found and pay off much less reliably. I've gone weeks without finding a single radar site, checking every day, among a half dozen different systems. But there are always rocks to be mined!

Mining for your first alt, exploration for your second alt. That way you can branch the mining alt into research and manufacturing, and use the exploration alt to find sites and plexes for your combat main to run.

Your mining alt will bring you much quicker return on time invested, as an exploration alt will eat up a lot of time poking around and finding nothing.
