In the US they had something similar during WWII. Large tracks of land on Long Island in New York state (currently over 4000 acres as a state park formerly “RCA property” sold for $1) and others one nearby another large “wireless” array near Princeton, NJ were used to send signals bounced I think off the ionosphere at night to Europe during the war. I think David Saranoff (or Saranov), then promoted to General, the RCA research center in Princeton, New Jersey today was in charge. Nearby Orson Welles landed the Martian invaders at Grover's Mill in the 1938 Halloween radio transmission of H.G. Wells' “War of the Worlds”. The wire arrays, were more like gridded lines between telephone poles and did not stand out like these from what I know. The first “radio fax” of a picture was in 1924 perhaps used that way also. I was told the plans for the D-Day invasion were kept in a safe on Governors Island in NYC perhaps transmitted by ionospheric transmission too over the large networks just above the tops of “pine barrens” today preserved for rainwater recharge of aquifer.
