Long Description:
This site is located at Cabrillo National Monument which is free to the public daily 9 to 5.
Visitors can see some WW II bunkers here as well.

The sign at the site reads:

"Army Radio Station

The United States Army constructed this building in 1918 to serve as
its first radio station for harbor defenses in San Diego. Since then it
has many other uses.

During World War II, the building housed a meteorological station
to support coastal artillery. Wind speed and direction, air pressure
and other variables that affect the range and accuracy of artillery
were first measured and sent to artillery officers from here.

When the National Park Service reopened Cabrillo
National Monument after the War, the station became the monument's
headquarters and then a storage building when the current
Visitors Center/Headquarters complex opened in 1966. Today
the station houses a permanent exhibit about San Diego's WWII
harbor defenses."
