I would almost say: you can't get more American. The Penue NDB is quite rurally placed. Farm, barn, silo, beacon, all you need. Get in the cattle.

Sixteen spokes and a hub. Perfect example of a high-yield wheel antenna. Any idea why these beacones are called 'Non-Directional' now?

The transmitter shed is simple, and comparable to the one found in the Netherlands at the former PH location. Just an enclosure with electronics inside. Notice the red Y-shaped marker beacon antenna, which is co-located with UN.
