  • I think the image was taken from the [Hohe Wurzel mountain](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hohe_Wurzel_(Taunus)) (or one of the hills around it) looking over Wiesbaden.
  • If one zooms in, such a viewpoint matches nicely the island in the river Rhine in the background

  • I don't know if there were any US army activities in this area, but it seems to have a long history for radio transmitters, including one of the [major broadcasting towers of the area](https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fernmeldeturm_Hohe_Wurzel).

  • There is a user `jskabennet` who says on http://wikimapia.org/1847834/Sendeturm-Hohe-Wurzel
  • > I have a radio relay map dated Dec 67. This map shows two microwave relay links from Lindsey AS to this location. Any further details?
  • which might be related to the transmitter shown in your image. Also the area seems to be popular for radio transmitters, including one of the [major broadcasting towers of the area](https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fernmeldeturm_Hohe_Wurzel).
