Haiku road leads from Kamehameha Highway west into Haiku Valley. (Highlighted)
The red arrow points to the original transmitter building, built in 1943.
The white dots mark the location of the steel ladder staked to the south rock wall. The ladder follows the 1943 route taken by Bill Adams and Louis Otto who first scaled this cliff. The small arrow at the bottom points to the trail head leading to the stairs.
In the early 1970s the alternator's four antennas and the TCG antenna were removed and replaced by six new anchors and valley spanning antennas for use by the Omega Aid to Navigation system.
The remains of the upper hoist house and three Omega anchorage sites.
