This Naval Security Group Activity Homestead station is dead, perhaps as a result of hurricane damage. The remnants show a facility once hosting an AN/FRD-10 Wullenweber antenna. However, the activity may have been relocated elsewhere in the vicinity, or replaced by another facility along the Florida coast and/or keys. See the US Air Force Station at Cudjoe Key:

Jeffrey Richelson wrote in The United States Intelligence Community (Ballinger, 1989):

Latin America, and particularly Central America, has obviously become a target of increased importance. At Lackland AFB, Medina Annex, San Antonio is a 272person contingent from INSCOM (U.S. Army Field Station, San Antonio) and one from the ESC which receive intercepted, Spanish language communications remoted from Tiger Island and Cerro la Mole in Honduras. Homestead AFB, Florida is the headquarters of Naval Security Group Activity Homestead, with its main operations center at Card Sound (known as Site Alpha or Seminole Station), which engages in the monitoring of Cuban military communications as well as Soviet activity in Cuba. It also monitors all communications involving Cuban and Soviet air activity originating in or destined for Cuba. Intercept operations are conducted using an AN/FRD-10 antenna system. Also targeted on Cuba are the antennas of the U.S. Army Field Station, Key West.
