Info from John Cobb - "Grindavik is about 10 miles from Keflavik, on the south coast of the Reykjanes Peninsula. I was the Leading Electronics
Technician there 1970-73. TX compliment at the time included a room full of AN/FRT-39 (10 kW PEP) and FRT-40 (40 kW PEP) HF
transmitters made by Technical Materiel Corp., plus LF on AN/FRT-19 and a Continental AN/FRT-72 connected to 600 and 800-foot
insulated towers. While there we installed the first Harris/Continental auto-tune HF sets (AN/FRT-83/84/85 series) and TCI antennas to
support ASW operations."
