Kagnew Station Patch

Kagnew Station
Communications Page

Kagnew Station was the largest high-frequency radio installation in the world and communicated with other sites from Washington, D.C. to North West Cape, Australia. We also communicated via microwave and satellite. This project will be ongoing as those sites and call signs are identified. If you were involved in maintaining circuits, please check the table below and let me know if you have any information that will help me complete it.
