Can someone give me the low down on whether there are radar sites in the drone regions? I am considering moving there and a large portion of my SP is in probing. I don't want it to be wasted if there are no lucrative sites to be probed.

If I remember correctly, from my days in welfare land, yes there are radar sites. As far as them being lucrative, I don't know. I think I got some augmented drone stuff, and **** ton of allows.

radar sites will always be a pirate faction, not drones... There are radars in drone space, but I've never done one. I assume that they will be of a random pirate faction.

Anyone else 100% confirm that they are pirates

In my limited experience in Etherium Reach (Drone Region) you find Radar sites with drones, not pirates, in them. I've completed two Radar sites in that drone region and both had Drones, not pirates guarding the loot.

You can get a **** ton of alloys, 'Intergrated' and 'Augmented' bpcs and probably other things I haven't run across yet.

All encounters in drone region are with drones... no pirates what so ever.
There are only radar, mining and anomolies, nothing else.

Drone sites are TERRIBLE. There are only 3 types: Unknown, Gravimetric and Radar

Unknown:

These are standard combat sites with rogue drones. You get lots of alloys, and a chance for a faction spawn. However, faction drones only drop one thing - drone parts, and these sell for a couple of mill at most. Unknown sites in drone space aren't really 'exploration sites' as much as concentrated belt ratting.

Gravimetric:

Normal mining sites guarded by drones - not much to say here.

Radar:

These are not like normal radar sites. There are a few hackable containers in the form of stations spread a long way apart. There are usually about 3-6 BS's plus support guarding them, but only small spawns after that. The containers, once hacked, have a chance to drop either drone parts, or BPC's for making 'enhanced' drones. These BPC's are rare, and need a lot of materials to produce. Not only that, but the drones they produce come in two varieties: 'integrated' and 'augmented' - Integrated are like named drones with attributes just a bit better than T1, while 'augmented' ones are slightly better than T2. Over all, if you manage to find and run one of these plexes, and you are lucky, you might get up to 20 mill or so, if you can find a buyer with more money than sense, but other than that they suck.
