A standard SCR-296A fire-control radar tower, circa 1944.
Located at Outer Brewster Island Military Reservation, Boston Harbor, Mass.

An SCR-296A fire-control radar unit on a free-standing 100-foot steel-frame tower was built at Concord Point in June 1943 on a government-owned 0.5 acre site. The radar unit was enclosed within a prefabricated wood antenna house. The pre-existing cottage on the site was reconfigured into the radar operating room and station barracks. A separate generator house and a 1000-gallon fuel storage tank were also built. The cottage still exists, albeit somewhat modified from its wartime appearance. All other military structures have long since been removed.
