Radio Cloak and Dagger

Categories: Event, History, NYS History, People

On this episode, learn about the recently declassified story of a covert radio station built by the FBI on Long Island to deceive the Nazis during World War II. From 1942-1945, double agents worked in secret from a remote home in Suffolk County on the major operations “Bodyguard” and “Bluebird,” and dug up information that some believe contributed to the United States’ development of the atomic bomb. After the war, the Wading River Radio Station was taken apart by the FBI, but the house itself is open to visitors at Camp DeWolfe.
