Site near Kingston, NY
- The site is definitely Kingston/Halihan Hill. It was a large mainly MW main
station, with some L-carrier interconnecting a downtown CO with this site.
No comm equipment inside except for a couple of old L-3 (I think) repeaters.
Inside is laid out differently from a lot of above ground main stations that
I have seen. There are two stories, and some side rooms, including a
dedicated L-carrier room. The A/C mechanicals are stacked up in a wing off
of the rear in a large steel frame. Features a very cool fallout/bomb
shelter room in the basement with a small seal up control/monitoring panel
and a ventilation fan that works either by hand or electric motor power.
In its hey day, there was lots of traffic through the site, including some
Rosendale is 5-7 mi away as I recall.
