This is from what we've seen down there:
Based on the graphic the 12 o' clock position is Westcreek, the 2
o'clock position is Calhan, the 4 o'clock position is either Boone
or Lamar, the 6 o'clock position is either Cedarwood or Beulah, the
8 o'clock position is -possibly- Beulah if Cedarwood is 6 o'clock,
and the 10 o'clock position is -possibly- Badger Mountain.
We can find no substantiated record of any 8 o'clock or 10 o'clock
sites. If anyone else has an information, please pass it on. :)
We've heard rumors that Cedarwood might have had a microwave shot to
Cheyenne South at one point in time. It certainly had the tower
height and location to do this, but we haven't found any proof of
this yet. This would make Cedarwood 6 o'clock and Beulah 8 o'clock
if it turns out to be true.
Another rumor is that Badger Mountain had a shot to Cheyenne North
which would be the missing 10 o'clock site. We havent made it up to
Badger yet (requires a snowcat this time of year), but plan to this
Also, based on the three coaxial feeds coming into the 4 o'clock
site, it is possible this represents Lamar. Lamar is quite a haul
from NORAD though and the graphic doesn't show anything between
the "nodal stations" and NORAD itself.
1966: http://long-lines.net/places-routes/maps/MW6610-W-1.jpg shows
the route from Calhan as being operational and the route from Beulah
1976: http://long-lines.net/places-routes/maps/CO76.html shows the
routes I mentioned above.
