----------------------------------------
A. How Radio Frequencies are NOT random
----------------------------------------
----------------------------------------

There has been a lot of controversy about Radio Frequencies being random in 
MGS3, and I'm here to tell you, it's not true.  The reason it's not true is
because Radio Frequencies are ONLY DIFFERENT BETWEEN DIFFICULTY SETTINGS!
Just like not being able to start a new difficulty with your clear file,
you cannot get Radio Frequencies from one difficulty to use in another.
However, the guards that give you the Radio Frequencies can be different.
The problem is no one has specified the difficulty settings when giving the
frequencies.  That was the ONLY problem with Frequencies not working.  They
are NOT random.

-----------------------
-----------------------
B. About the Guide
-----------------------
-----------------------

I've been an active Poster on Gamefaqs for about 3 years, but this is my first
guide, so I apologize if it is a little rough around the edges.  I also 
apologize for compulsive capitalization.

For this guide I interrogated every single interrogatable enemy in the game 
with the exception of the GRU soldiers.  All Soldiers, Officers, Flamethrower
Troops, Scientists and Mechanics were Interrogated. 

This is version 0.2 because it is only comprehensive on one difficulty setting,
Normal.  I am accepting help, please see the Closing Stuff section for more 
info on how.

--------------------------
--------------------------
C. How to Interrogate
--------------------------
--------------------------

This is pretty simple, just move close to an enemy, then press and hold the 
Circle Buttton to grab them in a Choke Hold.  Press down the L3 Button to make
them spill the beans.  All wnemies in the game have something to say, but most
of the time it's only junk, vague clues or insults.  Every once in a while you
get a little treasure. 

After Interrogating until the enemy repeats a line, feel free to neutralize 
them, using any technique you want.

You will also get clues on whether or not a Guard has any Information:

"We have guys who know ________ frequencies" means one of the guards in that 
area frequency info.

"Listening to the radio can be relaxing" means that guard knows a Healing Radio
Station.

----------------------------------------
----------------------------------------
D. Radio Frequency Explanations
----------------------------------------
----------------------------------------

Radio Frequency Drop Down Menu: 
Press Select any time during play to bring up the Radio, then press Down on the
Control Pad.

Alert Cancellation Frequencies:
-------------------------------
These are frequencies that you can use only once during a game.  

When in EVASION Mode, manually enter the frequency and Snake will call Enemy HQ
and give about the same line that the Guards usually give when your Evasion 
countdown wears out.  HQ will respond that per Protocol, that Frequency will no
longer be used.

NOTE: GRU Alerts cannot be cancelled.  The only way to get the GRU off your
back is to neutralize them all.

Fire Support Frequencies:
-------------------------
These are frequencies that you can use only once during a game.

Bombards the enemy with Artillery fire during ALERT mode.

Healing Radio Stations:
-----------------------
These frequencies are only effective once, but you can listen to them as many 
times as you want.  

They are accessible from the Drop Down Radio Menu, they're the 6th Slot, pick
Healing Radio, then pick the song you want.  Songs that you've interrogated 
someone for will appear with just a frequency number and a dash where the song
title should be.  Stations that you've listened to will appear with the song 
name.   You can also enter them in manually if you are just using a frequency
and haven't interrogated any soldier for.

Contact Frequencies:
--------------------
These frequencies are available from the Radio Drop Down Menu.  You can contact
them at anytime after they contact you, or you are introduced over radio.  Each
contact frequency will provide advice or information, and the SAVE and HEALING
RADIO options will let you save or access the Healing Radio Stations (duh).

Map Locations:
--------------
Some Soldiers when interrogated will give up the goods on item and enemy 
locations in that area.  Look at the Pause Screen's Map, enemies will be red
dots, while items will be small white dots.  When the enemy says "If you want
to learn more, look at the Survival Viewer Map" you know you now have it (You
don't have to listen to the whole thing, just the start of it will give you the
Map).  It will stay with you unless you have to get a Game Over before moving
to another area and have to Continue.

II. Key
--------
--------

In the interests of length, I'll be using these abbreviations for the rest of
the guide.

Difficulty Settings: 
Very Easy = VE
Easy      = E
Normal    = N
Hard      = H
Extreme   = EX

Wording Abbreviations:
w/ = With
b/n = Between
AA = Anti-Aircraft

Numbers:
F=Floor

ex. 1F = 1st Floor

Directional:
N=North
S=South
E=East
W=West
C=Center
L=Left
R=Right
B=Between
M=Most

Two of the abbreviations may be combined for more accurate directions.
Ex. NW = North West or NM= Northmost (Meaning the Farthest Soldier in that
Direction.)
