      The NORAD item is now online at:
      http://coldwardc.homestead.com/files/CMC/BLR1065/387.html

      Your question about the stations serving NORAD is a good one. From this
      1976 map (the same routes are shown on a 1979 map) it looks like only about
      half of the planned ring was built:
      http://long-lines.net/places-routes/maps/CO76.html

      Perhaps DoD decided to use carriers other than AT&T for the remainder of the
      links, or maybe funding was never provided for the full implementation. It
      would be interesting to find out what happened.
