The radio tower is a location in the Capital Wasteland in 2277. It was added in the Fallout 3 add-on The Pitt. It is the source of Wernher's distress signal.


The radio tower is at the top of a rather steep hill. There is a bedroll nearby that can be slept on.

Notable loot

About one square east from the tower is a D.C. Journal of Internal Medicine and some other notable loot. It's near a large pool of water with radioactive barrels and a shipping crate in it. The loot is located on a table in the far northwest corner of the pool and can be accessed by swimming through the shipping crate or dropping onto the crate from the cliffs to the north.
