File Description:
Durban Island is 40 miles north of Cape Dyer on the southeast corner of Baffin Island, and around 60 miles southeast of Qikiqtarjuaq (known as Broughton until recently). Sitting on the top of the island is FOX-E, an intermediate station that was part of the DEW line. There is no runway (and once you have seen the island you will know why) and the station and its (usually) five man crew were supported by helicopter flights from Cape Dyer. The main feature is a 300' high mast, topped by comms gear to link both to Broughton to the north and Cape Dyer to the south. There was only one really habitable building, 80' x 30' in round figures, and this contained the generators, technical spaces, sleeping areas, kitchen, mess, and showers etc. There were also what were known as Anderson shelters, originally put up to house the construction crew and used in the summer for any maintenance people who visited for short periods. There was also a garage for a snow cat and tanks for fuel. And a view. This post also includes new bgls for Cape Dyer to provide the 300' tower there too.
