Re: [coldwarcomms] Elk Neck, MD - Western Union
Thanks very much for that report - I wasn't aware of that any former WU sites
still had the tower-top cabin! I'll look forward to seeing your photos.
You're correct that there should be more than one waveguide; in fact I think
the station originally would have had four - one for transmitting and one for
receiving in each direction.
You might be interested in a 1954 article describing early WU microwave
The last page has a photo of a tower with a cabin.
