Significance: Antenna Towers S-109, S-110, S-111 are uncategorized facilities located outside the Pearl Harbor National Historic Landmark. The historical significance of the towers is due to their role both during and after World War II. Initially, these antenna towers were used to maintain communication for naval shore installations and fleet units in the Eastern Pacific area. Following the war, during the mid 1940's through the late 1960's, the towers were designated as the "Voice of America" towers used to broadcast American news internationally. Original construction drawings available on microfiche at the Navy Public Works Center, Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.
