He finds a device in the cable connections at the telephone pole and the Lone Gunmen confirm that there is additional information being transmitted along with the regular broadcasts. He concludes that the signal creates a sense of paranoia in the recipient, preying on their deepest fears, something that is confirmed when Scully sees Mulder sitting in a car, joking and laughing with the Cigarette Smoking Man. It's up to Mulder to bring these experiments to an end.
