The picture is Navy Radio NSS. One million watt VLF transmitter.
The console controls two big rigs combined into a Helix that fills
a five story building, ahead of the antenna.
That's a pair of glowing 3-500's driven by 807's in the window.
The operator on duty is Me!
I learned the code copying and sending along with NSS in the 40's, then fortunate to later be stationed there.
