We end our look at the Battleship U.S.S. Missouri with this view of the ship. Since this series focused on the radio room I chose this photo. At the front of the boat near the American flag is the principal HF transmitting antenna.  This keeps the radio room up and running and serves a a discone antenna. It is also the principal KH6BB antenna used today. It is however in need of substantial repairs to keep it running. If you wish to contribute visit Save The Discone. I hope you enjoyed this series on the Battleship focusing on the radio room. We have another more general series on the Battleship Missouri here.
