Nevada. August 2007
A longtime local resident said these old airway radio housing units were
originally located in Buffalo Valley, Humbolt County, and possibly
Beowawe or Lovelock, Nevada. At some point they were transported to
their current location (as of 2007) in Battle Mountain, Nevada.
Robert, submitter of above
photo, states the following: After comparing the elevation given
for Humboldt Radio on the April 1942 6M Regional Aeronautical Chart,
I'm positive that the houses shown in the above photo were located in
the northern tip of the Humboldt Auxiliary Field. There was some kind
of an "ore processing" operation there in fairly recent years and so
there are no remains to be found. I compared the site elevation and
also the elevation of a peak to the north of the site as shown on the
chart and they both match. The coordinates as taken from "Google Earth"
40 deg. 5' 23.95" N and 118 deg 09' 37.2" W. (Use
the following format to paste into Google Earth:
This is the only place
where the elevation matches. Another interesting point is that the
house on the right in the picture is the only one of the seven homes
that has two windows to the left of the front porch. We lived in this
house in 1977 and 1978.
