311 Jagged Icelandic Peaks Squeeze Hofn Radar Station to the Atlantic's Edge Fishermen and United States airmen live side by side at Hofn, site of a radar outpost for the Iceland Air Defense Force. Troops and technicians rotate on assignment from the main base at Keflavik, on Iceland's southwestern coast. Because Hofn's subarctic winters make ship visits uncertain, MATS flies in supplies. Nerve center of the station is the rubberized radome. A signal pylon reflects the weak afternoon sun.
