Looks like an umbrella to me, could it be a part of a lightning rod?The second I saw this, I thought it one of the neatest things I'd ever seen. It's in Elwood KS on the Missouri River, across from St Joseph MO. Because of the complex road system I had the criss-cross the river 3-4 times. Figuring out how to get to it. Any ideas of what kind of antenna it might be?
