Description You're trying to hold on to a signal from one of the Novos backbone relays. If you're going to see the signal, it should be in the death-throes of another site.
Hidden Flags Relay Effect

Notes

Allows you to help the Golden Chip "investigate" things by crashing sites with this effect active for any of the following sites:

At the start of a batch, after successfully tearing down a Novos system, you get one of the following messages. Using high View (maybe?) or Code Finesse (maybe?) helps progress tracking down quicker. Once you have enough progress, the energy of Relay Search is converted to one of four other effects, allowing you to find Midgard Relay Net sites.

Message Notes
You sift through the site's remains, but only find the slightest traces of the signal folks at the Golden Chip have been talking about. Making small amount of progress, first time
You continue on the trail of the signal, getting closer to pinpointing the source. Making small amount of progress, further times
You dig deep into the site's remains, getting closer to pinpointing the source. Making moderate of progress
As the site collapses, you pick up a <shaky/weak/strong/clear> relay signal buried near the Dockside Sewers. You might be able to track it down. Replace energy of Relay Search with Sewer Relay
As the site collapses, you pick up a <shaky/weak/strong/clear> relay signal beneath Metroplex University's Quad. You might be able to track it down. Replace energy of Relay Search with University Relay
As the site collapses, you pick up a <shaky/weak/strong/clear> relay signal near Southside Park. You might be able to track it down. Replace energy of Relay Search with Southside Relay
As the site collapses, you pick up a <shaky/weak/strong/clear> relay signal down by the Waterfront. You might be able to track it down. Replace energy of Relay Search with Waterfront Relay

When you get sufficient progress, you get one of the above 4 messages (at random?), and progress is then reset. To find a signal, you need about 3-4 "small" amounts of progress, or 2 "moderate" amounts or progress, or you get find it all in one go with sufficient tools.

Source

From using relay code. (20 Duration)

History

From March 24th-Apr 4th 2016, after making enough progress:

The signal seems to be coming from some sort of backbone system. You don't see any way into the system, but forward your results to Roi. Even if they can't figure out what to do with it, you're pretty sure this is at least the sort of thing they're looking for. (+1 Roi point.)

Getting the "As the site collapses" message also gave +1 Roi point.
