Adjacent to the leafy Veterans Memorial Park, which honors veterans from Holmdel, sits an incongruous fenced-in area housing a giant satellite antenna.
Established in 1982, the Holmdel Teleport is a 10,000 square-foot facility that serves the transmission needs of television, radio, cable users, government agencies, and internet service providers. The teleport also has access to several spacecraft orbiting the Earth. The facility is owned by the Maritime Telecommunications Network.
Not far from the Holmdel Teleport is the Veterans Memorial Park of Holmdel Township. It’s the site of the former Nike Battery NY-54, which operated as part of the United States’s atomic-missile defense system. A sign at the site reminds visitors of this history.
