- Same building style as at Arkabulta. Mechanical room was on a mezzanine
over the offices and work rooms, causing the roof to be higher over that
area. Small hatch from the equipment room out the side of that roof
extension onto the roof. On the other side of the tower there was another
hatch where you could access the outer part of the air inlet for the
I refer to the Arkabutla raised area as the rooftop dining area. Access is
from a short ladder next to the hatch on the outside.
No underground component.

This site has some other features I noticed....
Tower built in 1988; that strikes me as late -- when did the move to glass
kick in? But I see Alexander on older maps....
A smaller J atop the big J.
A building addition that's a story taller than the original,
in effect shadowing the tower in that direction.
BTW, saw a different name/address for initial contact:
1200 PEACHTREE ST FLOC15W27
ATLANTA , GA 30309
but later it changed to the familiar Ms. Pamela Cheeks...
These are the two best shots I have found:

- Good catch - nice term project for a CE grad student but probably not sufficient for a dissertation. At 1/16 scale the model horns were about 15-1/4" tall...
Minor observation: The pyramidal horn dimensions in Fig. A1 p85 are at odds with KS15676 dimensions given in BSP 402-421-400 Fig. 1 (Fig. 1 is in the KS15676 photo album). To wit: (when was the last time you heard someone say that?) - Fig. A1 shows the horn 1-15/16" taller than the BSP. Lest you think that's no big deal, it's almost 2/3 wavelength at 3,950-MHz. Either the BSP is in error, or someone made a mistake in Fig. A1 of the CSU wind study - whaddya think?
