U.S. Signal Station 1941
Nearly two centuries after Rodney recognized its importance, Pigeon Island was again used as a strategic base, during World War II. This U.S. Signal Station was built over Rodney's existing mortar battery dating from 1780, and Pigeon Island served as a U.S. naval communications signal station until 1947.
The inclined cable lift, to the east was used to haul up diesel fuel to power the generators. The wireless and transmitter receiving mast was atop Fort Rodney.
