I &GE SIX THE ARLINGTON TIMES, ARLINGTON, WASHINGTON, THURSI A], NOV. 19, 1953. Doris M• Deverna Out of Navy -i Doris M. Deverna Mrs. John Patch Breaks Wrist Mrs. John Patch, R. 2, Arling- ton, was painfully injured Sun- day morning when she fell from a load of hay onto the blacktop paving and sustained a broken right wrist and severe bruises. Mrs. Patch was assisting her husband in moving the hay when the accident happened. The hay had been loaded on a trailer and as the vehicle was pulled across the roadway it lurched and Mrs. !]patch slipped from the top of the !load. First aid was given by neigh- bors, who splinted the broken wrist and wrapped the patients in blankets. She was not moved as it was thought at first she had sustained internal injuries. She was transported to the Ar- lington hospital by ambulance. She returned home Sunday after. noon. O In Arlington - Phone 1344 KILLOUGH CLEANERS First. Message Sent From Local Radio .Station To the men and women of the U. S. Navy around the world: I greet you, from Jim Creek Valley in the Cas- ea(le mountain range of America's northwest. Here today we and the Radio Corporation of America are de(liea'ting to the service of the Navy and the nation, the most powerful radio transmitter ever built. Its wireless messages will i)enetrate to om; submarines beneath the water, to our Arclie outposts, to our ships and aircraft on and above distant seas. With this first message we forge another link between you and'your home land. With it, we build a new security.. channel from America to the naval units which form its outer ramparts of defense. To each of you, best wishes and Godspeed. ROBERT B. CARNEY. for Norfolk, Va.--Seaman Appren- WATERPROOFING lice Doris M. Deverna, daughter of Mr. William H. Deverna, or O~~O--O-~~~~~~ R. 5, Arlington, Wash., has been honorably discharged from the U. S. Navy at the U. S. Naval Re- ceiving Station, Norfolk, Va. The U. S. Naval Receiving Sta- tion, under the command of Cap- tain John Harllee, U.S.N., process- es approximately 8,000 men a month on their way to and from Naval activities all over the world. O The Jim Creek Antenna System The Navy5s 1,200,000 watt transmitter lies at the foot of twin, 3.000-foot peaks, from which are suspended the impressive an- tenna array. By selecting this natural site to achieve height for the antenna, the Navy was able to reduce substantially the cost of its Jim Creek installation. Prior to the erection of the an- tenna system, nearly a year was spent in cutting thousands of Douglas firs from the valley slopes. This was necessary to fa- cilitate rigging work, eliminate the possibility of forest fires, and most important, to improve trans- mitter efficiency since trees tend. to absorb large quantities of the energy radiated by the antenna. Designed by RCA Communica- tions, Inc., a subsidiary of Radio Corporation of America, the an- tenna consists of ten spans, or catenaries, each over a mile in length. They form a zig-zag pat- tern high above the floor of the ~,alley. Twelve 200-foot steel tow- ers erected along the crests of the twin mountains support the an- tenna spans. From the mid-point of each catenary, cables plunge straight down to the towers of the busing system which ties the giant 1transmitter to its antenna. The tapering nature of the val- ley causes the catenary spans to vary in length. Of the ten cat•n- aries, the longest is 8,700 feet and 1he shortest, 5,640 feet. To allow lor the ice and wind conditions expected in the area, the spans are permitted to sag as much as 1,063 feet at their center point.

With antennas of such great height, a tendency exists to pick up static electricity from the air If left ungrounded, static volt- ages in the array will often build up to a point where they will jump a gap of a foot or more in length. Therefore, to insure safe- ty of operating personnel, the an- tennas are kept directly grounded when not in use. More than 220 miles of copper wires, cables and screens are buried in an intricate mttern across the valley floor to )rovEd• efficient grounding. • RESIDENCE AND COMMERCIAL ALL WORK GUARANTEED Whirlpool Appliances EI ECTRIC IIEAT Specialists Ma ysville Phone 2575 Cliff Danner, Electrician WHITE HORSE Mrs. M.
