What's this antenna stove connection thing?

Recommended Posts

Been setting up a little side camp in the lookout and just noticed this conduit coming down from the roof and leading down and connecting to the pot belly stove.  I popped out and checked out the back and of course the conduit lines right up with the antenna.  So what kinda antenna is this?  RadioThermic? Does the pot belly stove emit some kinda RHF signal went lit?  Maybe the stove is some kinda power source, 'cause as i look around there arent any electrical outlets in this structure.  So why even have an antenna on the building?  No radio, tv, computer or laptop either, nor any power lines to speak of.  Could this insidious connection be the real reason behind the event?

There are some different antennae on top of the lookout at Mystery Lake.

There are definitely on a different spectrum.

The antenna segments represent quarter wavelength of the broadcast wavelength.   Guestimate at 100 khz for left side antenna and 100 Mhz for the right side antenna.

There does not seem to be any leads for the higher frequency antenna going into the tower cabin.

The radio also seems to be the destination for the other antenna.

 

The stove has two burner slots and you know what that means.

Hmm, yes. The poor electrical engineering skills of a forestry lookout ranger caused a global apocalypse. +1

You actually have a point :D what is that for? Maybe its a copper pipe for the summer times when it gets hot? To get cooled down or to cool the stove in some way for a reason. 

EDIT: I KNOW! Is it a copper pipe to melt ice/snow away from the antenna on the right side of it? @Raphael van Lierop
