Broadcast Tower Design and Fabrication for US Gov. Atomic Testing

During the Cold War, in 1955, Stainless, broadcast subsidiary of FDH, was enlisted by the United States Government to provide towers to give an early warning network for launched missiles, which were erected in Canada. As part of this top secret assignment (now Declassified) Stainless designed and fabricated Type G-15-100 towers for atomic testing in Nevada. These towers were placed at varying distances from the point of detonation. Walter Guzewicz, Stainless founder and president at that time, was invited to attend one of the tests and took this photograph of a building that was destroyed by the blast, with the Stainless tower remaining standing in the background.
