Abstract:

A 560-kw transmitting station which fills the central gap in the U.S. Navy space surveillance fence was completed and put in operation in June 1961. The design and installation of this station located in north central Texas are described. Two novel features in the design of this station are the use of commercial FM and TV power units and the method by which their power outputs were combined to give a total output of 560 kw. Author
