Forgotten Station Silently Waiting for Signals

Numerous non-functioning antennas are located not so far from Anadyr in the north of Russia. Troposphere communication station "Yukon" and a local civil TV center used to function there too. Due to army reduction and development of satellite means of communication the demand in the costly station finally declined and in 2003 it was closed. The TV center was closed ten years later.
The station does not receive any signals today and its rusty discs sadly stare at the sky.
Check out how the station, that still has much equipment inside, looks like today.
