Radiation Incorporated / Harris TLM-18
One of the items transferred to Wall Township with the property was the Radiation Incorporated TLM-18 telemetry antenna. This antenna is of a parabolic prime focus design, having a reflector 60 feet across. The feed point mounting structure has been modified from the original design of 6 legs, to a modern design having 4 legs.
On April 13 2005, Harris Corporation made a substantial donation to begin the process to stabilize and preserve the massive antenna. Efforts are underway to determine if the antenna can be restored to active use.
