Geocache Description:



I must provide this disturbing report: Electromagnetic radiation is bombarding us from many places! I have discovered one peculiar source of radiation that is active in the evenings only. 

This cache will help you understand this phenomenon, but regretably, you will be subjected to radiation several times during this investigation. I appreciate your sacrifice in the quest for scientific knowledge.

I don't think you will get a letal dose of radiation, but if you do, I will raise the difficulty rating somewhat to reflect your untimely demise. (And you'll still get FTF.)

Stage 1:This stage is only available from 5-7 PM each evening. Go to the posted coordinates.  By applying the Secret Code, you will enter a new realm of Electromagnetic Radation. After being in this realm for a few minutes, you will discover the "Word of the Day."

Stage 2: Calculate Final location based on the formula below, and using the letters in the Word of the Day:

N37 43.ABC W 121 56.DEF

A = 1st letter - 7,

B = 2nd letter - 15,

C = 3rd letter - 12,

D = 4th letter -10,

E = 5th letter - 4

F =# of letters in Word of the Day

If by some chance you survive this quest, please allow future investigators to experience the joy of discovering the radiation.
