Voice of America, Bethany Relay Station

One of Crosley Broadcasting's lesser-known yet far-reaching projects was the construction of the Voice of America (VOA) facility next to the WLW transmitter site at Mason, Ohio. (Actually, it was located in Bethany.) Later on, I'll post an article about the site that I wrote in 1983. For now, here's a photo from the site. The view is looking out from beneath the antenna switching center (hoe handles were used to move giant knife switches) to a portion of the antenna array.
