Comm Station?

Comm Station? | Badger Mountain, WA | 2007

No one yet has explained exactly what this bulbous facility atop Badger Mountain actually does. I assume it’s an antenna of sorts — radio, radar, microwave, extraterrestrial signals — that sends or receives vital information. Or maybe an electromagnetic measuring device? A few years ago, I drove up to its gate and was met by a bespectacled man with a buzz cut and pocket protector. When I asked what the “golf ball” actually did, he seemed offended. “Nothing magic,” he said, “if you understand physics.”
