What is more interesting (unless you are a radio phreak) is the plot of land beside which it stands, which to all intents and purposes belongs to the territory of the United Kingdom. Here is one of two Commonwealth War Graves Commission owned cemeteries in and around Berlin (the other is the World War I Berlin South-Western in Stahnsdorf, near Potsdam).

Even if you don't wish to make the trip out to the cemetery, at least now whenever you see the Scholzplatz mast you will perhaps remember the brave soldiers who are buried there.
