      I have had the opportunity in the past, with Commission approval, to review
      the Allegan, MI site after its shutdown as a manned station. I documented
      it rather thoroughly with photographs, and examined all the facilities. I
      have the original goniometer from the multi-tower HFDF system, also with
      Commission approval.

      The original operations building, which was a 1200 or so square foot Cape
      Cod style two story brick home, was rented out to a private party at the
      time; there was virtually nothing left in it from the original mission, save
      for some equipment from the new remote controlled DF system.

      I've revisited it from time to time in recent years; little by little more
      things disappear from the grounds, but it is otherwise unchanged.

      These are the locations of the FCC DF locations that were registered with
      the ITU in the past (registered with the ITU because of their HF repeater
