The radio tower is at the top of a rather steep hill, and is about 40-50 feet tall. There is a bedroll nearby that can be slept on.
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.
- Once you return from The Pitt, the radio tower will no longer show up on your Pip-Boy 3000 or location compass.
- There is a random encounter point in the hills to the west, directly between this location and the train tunnel.
