Richard Tracy)
The New BOC in winter, before the 40-foot radar antenna was installed: you can see the top of the 20-foot AN/GSS-1 antenna, to the right of the radar tower; the big "needle" on the left is our lightning rod. The one on the far right (beyond the UHF tower) is one of the VHF radio antenna masts: you can see its supports and a suspension system for the 36-foot VHF wire antenna; on the wire itself, a "connector" and a short section of "lead" are visible.
