Re: [coldwarcomms] Re: Tangier Radio Relay System
- The Tangier RCA site is virtually invisible now, with all the development in the area, according to my contacts in Tangier and looking at the current Google Earth shot, remnants of the old receiver site are visible. The TX site is gone.
If you go back to earlier Google Earth photos, say, back to 2003, the RCA operational complex is very visible.
The RCA transmitter building complex is at:
35 41 12.74N 5 57 09.37W
The RCA receiver building complex is at:
35 41 32.05N 5 57 00.52W
VOA was in the neighborhood, for pretty much the same reason as RCA, a decent HF propagation path from the US.
The old VOA Tangier receiving site is at:
35 43 22.88N 5 52 01.14W
The old VOA Tangier transmitter site is at:
35 38 42.16N 5 54 49.25W
The two VOA sites look pretty much the same in the latest Google Earth shots as they did in the earliest Google Earth shots. Guess that comes from not have beachfront property.
Tooting my own horn, here is a link to a number of photos I took at the RCA sites in 2008:
