This property could probably be purchased cheaply at auction by anyone who wants to start an HF radio station at the center of CONUS.

      The same thing crossed my mind, Mark. Since it has a directional HF antenna, perhaps this would compensate for not being on a coast facing the target area? We may never know now, but entirely feasible.

      Exactly what I thought, too.

      Maybe we’re finally getting rid of all these stations from the Cold War.
