Set Up MILA
Introduction note: it's a repeatable quest and the other ones from the series can be received in random order. In theory, the quest is simple - set up the MILA transmitter which you will receive from Tinker Tom when starting the quest. However, reaching the required location is very hard. Recommended character level is +20.
Despite appearances, you aren't supposed to install the transmitter on a building roof or a highway. You must get to the monorail which is partially immobilized inside a building wall. You will get up through the Haymarket Mall.
Entrance to the building can be found on the northwestern side. Inside you will face many bandits, one of them will have a rocket launcher. Use the stairs and turn right to reach the elevator. Turn to the corridor in the left after leaving the elevator. You will find a room from which you can use the door to walk to the roof. Watch out, you can face many robots on this floor. If you don't want to fight them, you must hurry.
At the roof you will face a deathclaw. If you don't feel like fighting, run quickly next to the fountain and get to the scaffolding on the northern wall. Walk two floors below and you will see a platform of the monorail. Inside you will have to face a strong Protectron robot. Now all that's left is to walk to the place pointed by the quest marker and place the transmitter there. Now, return to Tom and the quest will end.
Quest rewards: experience, 190 bottlecaps, another quest from the Weathervane series (it is a repeatable quest, you will receive the next ones in random order).
