This is a very interesting facility. Originally it was the 1914 Marconi Belmar Trans-Atlantic Wireless station. Later it became known as Camp Evans, where it played a key role the development of radar, helped develop space communications in 1946, was also used as a cold war technology site. Right down the road is the "Diana Site" which was used to first bounce a signal off the moon. The same dish that did that is still there and has been restored to operations once again. Also on site are many WWII radio, radar, and electronic equipment, a shipwreck museum and not to be missed, the radio technology museum with a collection of radios, tv's, phones, telegraph equipment.. you name it! There is enough to keep you occupied for several hours. The place is in the middle of being restored so things will probably change, grow, etc. Don't forget the Diana site just up the road (leave the building from the front, make a right go just past softball fields, site has a big dish and its on the left)
