The Germans had a spy ring in Sayville and a huge wireless station that they used to  transmit secret messages to Mexico City about their secret invasion plans. The messages going through Sayville were uncovered and the country was saved.

Suffolk County News on December 20th 1918

"Beginning in 1911 the Telefunken Company of Germany built a wireless station in West Sayville just north of the railroad tracks. A 500 foot tower that could be raised and lowered rose from a ball and socket joint atop a concrete foundation. It was completed in 1912 and wireless messages could then be transmitted to a similar tower in Nanen, Germany, 3,500 miles away. From August 1, 1914, until April 6, 1917, the United States monitored messages sent over the Telefunken wireless and U.S. Marines guarded the station. After the U.S. declared war the station was sealed off, the wire fence surrounding it was charged with electricity, and floodlights were placed throughout. After World War I it was taken over by the MacKay Radio and Telegraph Company and later the FAA. Presently it is not in use by anyone. The huge mast was demolished in 1938."
