Hi All,

Frequent reader, but new poster here.

Not sure if this should be posted in this section, or if it is better in the Longwave Loggings, or even Utilities area, but a few years back I came across an article about the now defunct Clam Lake, Wisconsin submarine communications facility.
 It interested me not only from the communications aspect, but also because I have a summer house about an hour away from there.
Long story short, I took a drive and visited the former site.... Is that someone anyone would be interested in hearing about, and seeing a few photos?
If there is any interest, I would be happy to do a write up, and post in this, or another appropriate forum area.
Thanks, and 73

Cronus I'm not sure where the article should go but I would bet it would be most appropriate in the general radio discussion column. Regardless I think that your write up would be very interesting to a lot of the folks here. Please feel free to write one up.

Definitely do it. I'm not terribly far away and it would be interesting that something actually happens here in fly-over country.
