Foremast of USS Buck (DD-761)

Foremast of USS Buck (DD-761)
Here we see the foremast, radar and Mk 37 director on the Allen M Sumner class destroyer USS Buck (DD-761). The larger antenna just below the top of the mast is for the post-war AN/ SPS-6 air search radar. The round radar dish on top of the director looks to be an SPG-25 antenna, which dates this picture to the late 1950s at the earliest.
