The Radio mast Oscar Tango is an unmarked location in the Capital Wasteland in the year 2277. It is located in a small hamlet in the southern area of Jury Street township. After turning the power source of the broadcast tower on, it emits Signal Oscar Tango to the near vicinity.

Exterior[edit | edit source]

Located in the southern vicinity of Jury Street, this fenced in radio tower with a transformer by its side is one of the better preserved relics in the area, and has still electrical function after unlocking the gate (easy) and activating the switch on the transformer.

Drainage chamber[edit | edit source]

The manhole cover in the street (next to the mailbox of a boarded-up two story house south of the stores) leads to a small drainage chamber that is actually a cover for a pre-War bunker. In the main room, there are items strewn and thrown about: of note a Big Book of Science and pre-War book and a very rare package of gum drops.

There is also a ham radio, marked 'Oscar Tango', which is the source of the signals above if you activated the radio tower. It replays Morse code signals in a loop, often containing something similar to "Anyone out there?"

There is no sign of the pre-War occupants, though the walls have been marked by raiders. Looking around, and you'll find a switch to the lower level where you'll find the raiders' victims, along with the original two occupants (now skeletal). After discovering this, you may be ambushed by two random raiders.

  1. Fallout 3 Official Game Guide Game of the Year Edition p.397: "8.B: RADIO MAST OSCAR TANGO AND HAMLET (LAT -11/LONG -05)
    8.C: DRAINAGE CHAMBER (LAT -11/LONG -04)
    Technically the southern part of Jury Street [5.13], there's a radio mast to switch on after you unlock the gate and activate the electrical switch.
    Listen to Radio Signal Oscar Tango; careful triangulation leads you to a manhole cover [8.C] on the road, near one of the houses."
