Berlin's central position in East Germany allowed us to monitor all kinds of electronic traffic, and much of this was done by members of the Army Security Agency's Field Station Berlin. Here you will find pictures of the Teufelsberg "Weather Station" and other features.

The "Agency" gave a collegiate air to Andrews Barracks in Berlin, but it is clear in hindsight that their work helped to keep the peace. When each side in the Cold War knew what the other was doing, the rest of us could sleep better at night.
