WVY - Presidio of San Francisco
WVY was a US Army station located in the Presidio of San Francisco, overlooking the Golden Gate. It used A1 emission on 173kc and seven frequencies in the HF bands.
The WVY receiver and transmitter buildings still exist. The receiver site has been converted to offices but "WVY" still proudly appears above the entry.
Two transmitter sites have been located on the Presidio. Building 1444 is in the lower area of the fort and is in poor shape, although some antenna poles still stand. The other building is located atop the highest point in the Presidio next to a tall free standing tower. This building was used as a MARS station in a later incarnation.
MRHS member Richard Dillman recently photographed both buildings. We present those photos here along with some vintage views of the station.
