That tower did not exist until after 1973. I was there then and this is a later shot. My guess is more like 1974-76.
I second that. I left in 1968 and the German site was on the other side of the mountain.
I left the Mountain in April of 1973. I know for a fact that this pictured German tower did not exist then. They used some type of hydrolic lift mechanism to hoist their antennas then. Also, the shorter tower near the center of the photo was an ELINT dish antenna that Lorin Morston (spelling ?) and I disassembled early in 1972. Up there we found an old cardboard box full of code-word communications documents.
Suggest Cold War Vets join these yahoo groups: USASAFS_Rothwesten or armysecurityagencyvets and/or some others.
Also: Write your congressional reps, to request designation of a campaign ribbon, for cold warriors.
