I would love to have one of the giant DF antennas!  Wow!  Makes a Four Square (or even a W0UN-style Nine Circle) array look anemic.

The James Bamford book on NSA "Body of Secrets" has many references to Elephant Cage rx arrays.

Here's a great picture of ANFLR-9 array:

The associated Wikipedia entry is interesting:
