Anyone know what this LP array is?

This last weekend I took my kids to Sacramento on the Capitol Corridor Amtrak. On the way, just south of the Fremont train station, and visible from the right side of the train is a big HF log-periodic array. It's got about 17 elements, and is about 70 feet in the air. I got a photo:

I'm going to guess FAA. In Google Streetview you can see what looks to be where they trenched in the parking lot over to buildings on the east. If you go a little further east you see two towers with arms coming out the top. That's typical FAA. Googling a bit, I see an FAA address at 5125 Central Ave, which looks to be this building. There are many HF aeronautical frequencies.
