Knollwood (Dublin, New Hampshire)

Knollwood is an historic summer estate house on Windmill Hill Road in Dublin, New Hampshire. The large 2 1/2 story "summer cottage" was designed by Shepley and Coolidge and built in 1899-1900 for banker Franklin MacVeagh. One of Dublin's major summer estate houses, it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983. Knollwood is located in southeastern Dublin, on the south side of Upper Jaffrey Road at its junction with Snow Hill Road; the main house is located well south of the road, on a cleared plateau with panoramic views of nearby Mount Monadnock and the hills to the south. The house is a 2-1/2 story frame structure, with a hip shingled exterior, its main section is H-shaped, with a long ell extending to the west, a porch extending across much of its southern facade. A number of Queen Anne-style chimneys project from the roof; the house was built in 1899-1900 for Chicago banker Franklin MacVeagh, to a design by the Boston firm Shepley and Coolidge. It is an important work of that firm, depicting its transition from the more elaborate Renaissance styles of its early years to include Georgian Revival and more Classical features.

While MacVeagh was United States Secretary of the Treasury, he twice hosted President William Howard Taft at Knollwood. It was purchased in 1954 by founder of the Sheraton Hotel chain.

Sender Donebach

The Sender Donebach was a 500-kilowatt long wave radio transmitter operating on 153 kHz and transmitting the program of German public broadcaster Deutschlandfunk. The facility, the property of Media Broadcast, was built between 1965 and 1967 on a former airfield, entered service on March 10, 1967, it was part of an omnidirectional aerial, consisting of four 200-metre-high radio masts, which were connected using wires on their tops. The middle mast was fed via radio power; this efficient transmission aerial led to interference with the Romanian transmitter Braşov on the same frequency, so only 70 kilowatts of power were used, instead of 250. But with this reduced power, interference to Braşov occurred, so in 1972 the radio facility Donebach was rebuilt as a directional aerial with a minimum towards Braşov; therefore two radio masts were taken down and the remaining two were rebuilt as umbrella aerials. This made a transmission power of 250 kilowatts possible; the Geneva Frequency Plan of 1975 set new power limits to the Donebach transmitter and now there was a daytime operation with 500 kilowatts and a night time operation at night time.

This facility was remarkable because the frequency of the carrier was derived from a rubidium atomic clock, in the station building. It was as the carrier frequency of a standard frequency; the 363-metre-high masts were the second tallest structures in Germany, just behind the Fernsehturm Berlin. 49°33′36″N 9°10′55″E 49°33′43″N 9°10′28″E This Antenna was a popular spot among climbers and Base-Jumpers.
