The caged dipole antenna atop a building at Steiner Studios in Brooklyn, NY
This antenna exists on a roof top in the Steiner Movie Studios in Brooklyn, NY. It's part of the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Click on the photo for more details about the studio. Pictured is the interesting antenna, quite complex in construction. I've had reports that it is called a caged dipole. Used by the Navy for ship to shore communications.
Studio front entrance.
The studio is huge with 285,000 sq ft of space.

I recently discovered this studio last month driving in the area. Brooklyn is a huge borough and it could probably survive as an independent city by itself. There are many treasure troves to be found in Brooklyn, NY; like the Steiner Studios.

I am trying to find out more information on the antenna's history and past use.
One end section of the antenna, with safety ladder for access.
Wouldst appear it's a dipole of some complex design. A very sturdy structure.

I am in search of more details regarding the specifics of its electrical parameters.

The construction is eloquent in design. I think it can can operate in most of the high frequency bands from 80 through 6 metres.
