Issue #20522: Radio (Radio Freedom) does not always play


The Radio activator object placed from Workshop mode is usually completely silent, not even playing static. For those unfamiliar with it, the different Radios can be found under Decorations > Miscellaneous. I've played around with it a bit, and dug through the Creation Kit, and only came up with a few things:

[In-game] Using Artillery Grenades while nearby will cause the Radio to announce artillery strikes, and then play music shortly after. Walking a short distance away and coming back, however, will set it back to complete silence.

[In-game] Playing Radio Freedom on the Pip-Boy, then turning the Radio on, will cause the Radio to work properly (even after turning the Pip-Boy back off). However, just like with #1, leaving and coming back will make it silent.

[CK] The activator objects used are RadioFreedomReceiver and/or RadioFreedomReceiverOff, but I've compared them to RadioDiamondCityReceiver/Off and RadioInstituteReceiver/Off (Classical) and found nothing wrong.

[CK] Classical Radio uses the quest RadioInstituteQuest and Diamond City Radio uses the quest RadioDiamondCity, while Radio Freedom uses the extremely large quest MinutemenCentralQuest. I'm betting the bug is buried within the MinutemenCentralQuest somewhere, but the Creation Kit constantly crashes whenever I try poking around in there, and I'm not too familiar with programs like FO4Edit.

Just to be absolutely clear, Radio Freedom works fine for me on the Pip-Boy and while standing around The Castle. I only experience this problem with the Workshop placeable object.
