Antenna for CXAM radar
Mounted on the foretop of USS Yorktown (CV-5). Photographed during the Battle of Midway, 4 June 1942.
The antenna and its supporting yoke are somewhat obscured by the upper structure of the foretop, the topmast, the mast's yard (with a ladder hanging from it and signal balls on two of its halliards) and the U.S. ensign flying from the mast.
