I found the advanced power armour just laying around in vault 13 *cough*... I didn't add it in a save game editor... I can confirm the radio I used is from the mutants at the entrance so which defo have scripts attached to them so probably they are bugged when used. I'll try and magically obtain one via the save game editor and see if a normal one works perhaps. I'll also just try use repair skill and see if that's bug free. I would say though if the radio out front of the military base is bugged due to the script, probably it needs to be made workable with the Mr. Handy or say this 'radio doesn't fit' try another one or something?' as likely this will be the easiest radio to get hold of for the repair.
