Re: Central Va Army Microwave Repeaters
- Apparently nobody in the list, including me,remembered a post(#631, which see)13 years ago describing this route, which includes Unionville & Warrenton north of Mineral/Bumpass; so the questions remaining are the Warrenton-Pentagon route(direct shot unlikely);Purcellville has been mentioned.
Fort Pickett was likly the repeater site between Midlothian and Union Level.
The Warrenton site was likely one of the WTC sites.
With COMSEC still in mind, it's also likely that Camp Butner and Seymour Johnston AFB were repeaters between Union Level and Ft Bragg, with at least three other leased repeater sites in NC; so all the repeaters in NC are in question; also the RF & MUX gear used on this route.

Camp Butner NC is a possible terminal South; and there seems to be a missing repeater between Midlothian & Union Level,possible Camp/Fort Pickett, maybe with drops there.There are many military/gov't sites North of Bumpass it could have talked to.
