today?..this could have been the miltary tropo hop i've heard about.
- Both sites were Army HF radio stations. I believe La Plata was a receiver
site; it was also a relay station on the Army's first microwave circuit,
which linked the Pentagon and Ft. Monroe. Woodbridge was a big Army comms
center but I don't know its exact function.
I haven't visited either site and don't know the exact locations, but I
understand that there's not much evidence of the radio installations. I
think they were closed in the 1960s.
