      Given the tower is owned by AT&T, but not a LL work location, I'll postulate
      that, until we have factual info, this location was analagous to the North
      Bend WA Autovon switch & a few other places: that is, a LL or Bell broadband
      station(for intertoll access) next to(or close to) an Autovon switch owned &
      maintained by a Bell company, an Independent telco, or as in North Bends'
      case, a quasi telephone co.(Cascade Autovon; whose CLLI was NBNDWA01,
      without the "X" of an Independent telco).

          Forrest City, AR 528 MMPHARJC V7534 H3229

          Forrest City is roughly 8 miles SSW of the google map image cited below(I have'nt compared the V & H above); FWIW Forrest City is not listed as a LL work location in the 1970's or 80's.The Autovon switch was post 1967.

              I think I finally got some definitive info; from a Long Liner familiar with this site. This place is about as convoluted as it gets:

              It is Memphis Jct, and Forrest City, and Newcastle, a place name nearby. It's in the CWA contract as New Castle, which is a town 80 miles away; and none of the maps showed either New Castle/Newcastle.

              Here's his response:

              "Long Lines office Memphis Junction, aka Newcastle, aka Forrest City was/is located about 8 miles NE of Forrest City, AR (named after CSA Lt. Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest). It was a 24-7 manned office with microwave as the transmission connection. It had an autovon ess switch. The first manager there was Loyd Roberts. I believe Loyd had at least three 1st level supervisors at that location plus myself at Little Rock (Alexander, AR a TD-3 BT Labs field trial location) and Blythville, AR (on the St.Louis-Memphis RR route plus L-1 cable route. There was no other building next door. The CWA contract had this location listed as Newcastle I believe. Loyd offered me my first supervisory job at Alexander, AR in 1965. I also had TD-2 responsibility for two RR repeater stations on the LR-Memphis RR Route plus 4 J carrier repeater stations on the St.Louis-LR route and also a C carrier repeater at Walnut Ridge, AR on the St.Louis-Hot Springs C Carrier route. I had previously maintained all these as a technician when I worked at the LR office. My father also worked at the Forrest City office as the District Cable Supervisor for the south half of the St.Louis District."

                I believe the "Forrest City" site indicated on the 1979 AT&T System Map is the Southwestern Bell/AT&T office located at 505 Dillard Avenue.

                Forrest City (FRCYARMA/WCU420) had paths facing Wynne/WCU219 and Marianna/WDU355.

                Per the FCC-ULS database, Marianna/KLN71 (AT&T Long Lines) had paths facing Dundee/KLN70 and an "Unnamed Site"/KLN72. Presumably "KLN72" is Memphis Junction (MMPHARJC) based on the various path route maps.

                The majority of the towers operated by Southwestern Bell in NE Arkansas that are detailed on the 1979 map appear to have been dismantled sometime prior to 2001 although the tower foundations can still be viewed using available imagery at several of the sites, including Forrest City. Weiner, West Helena, and West Memphis sites remain standing based on latest available imagery. Historical Google Earth imagery shows several of the now dismantled towers in-service circa 1994.

                Here is a call sign/coordinate list that I complied from researching the FCC-ULS database for the Southwestern Bell/AllTel/CenturyTel sites in NE Arkansas detailed on the 1979 map as well as the AT&T Long Lines site locations that are twinned (name-wise) with the Southwestern Bell sites but are geographically separated.

                Gilmore was removed, and the building remained. All the copper wiring, including the drop was stolen in 2009. Grrr. Still has an upright generator. West

                  Gilmore was removed, and the building remained. All the copper wiring,

                  generator.

                  West Memphis is still there as you state, on a small plot of land surrounded
                  by the adjoining companies land (you have to go through the guard shack to
                  get there)

                  Cave city was removed. (Sniff. It was right in town, and tremendous self
                  supporter)

                  Bay is still there - it was SWBT (SWBT was in a fenced in area inside the
                  building) and AT&T. Great tower right in town. AT&T is still the owner,
                  with active fiber on site.

                  Subject: [coldwarcomms] Re: Memphis Junction GEP ATT LL site





                  I believe the "Forrest City" site indicated on the 1979 AT&T System Map is
                  the Southwestern Bell/AT&T office located at 505 Dillard Avenue.

                  Forrest City (FRCYARMA/WCU420) had paths facing Wynne/WCU219 and
                  Marianna/WDU355.

                  Per the FCC-ULS database, Marianna/KLN71 (AT&T Long Lines) had paths facing
                  Dundee/KLN70 and an "Unnamed Site"/KLN72. Presumably "KLN72" is Memphis
                  Junction (MMPHARJC) based on the various path route maps.

                  The majority of the towers operated by Southwestern Bell in NE Arkansas that
                  are detailed on the 1979 map appear to have been dismantled sometime prior
                  to 2001 although the tower foundations can still be viewed using available
                  imagery at several of the sites, including Forrest City. Weiner, West
                  Helena, and West Memphis sites remain standing based on latest available
                  imagery. Historical Google Earth imagery shows several of the now dismantled
                  towers in-service circa 1994.

                  Here is a call sign/coordinate list that I complied from researching the
                  FCC-ULS database for the Southwestern Bell/AllTel/CenturyTel sites in NE
                  Arkansas detailed on the 1979 map as well as the AT&T Long Lines site
                  locations that are twinned (name-wise) with the Southwestern Bell sites but
                  are geographically separated.

                      From a 1986 Autovon directory



                      Memphis Junction AR SMN128 COC 435



                      ICM480



                      Then the Manger Telephone, name and number, Testboard Supv, Switch supv,
                      Testboard #, Switch Tel #, Data phone #



                      CIDS LM0222 & 365



                      All the numbers are Forrest City Exchanges.



                      A 1989 southern region AT&T directory shows Forrest City AR to be at two
                      addresses, downtown at 326 N Rosser, and Rt 1, Box 376, the site out of town
                      that has been marked as the autovon site, which shares that address and
                      telephone number.



                      The other locations in Memphis are either the downtown buildings, small work
                      centers, or retail outlets.

                      Snippet from a tariff in a previous post:

                      Forrest City, AR 528 MMPHARJC V7534 H3229

                      Forrest City is roughly 8 miles SSW of the google map image cited below(I
                      have'nt compared the V & H above); FWIW Forrest City is not listed as a LL
                      work location in the 1970's or 80's.The Autovon switch was post 1967.

                        Good find. In the older ULS databases, when a license expired etc, it was removed from the listings and you couldn't find it in a search. However, little pieces remained if a connecting station was still there. Such is the case here, with KLN71 existing and KLN72 referred to in it's entry. Even though it is not named, the frequencies to it are listed, along with the Azimuth, in this case 0.6 degrees. Popping the Marianna and the LL "Forrest City" coordinates into your favorite Azimuth/Distance program verifies that azimuth, and that MMPHARJC is indeed KLN72. I've identified and located a number of stations that way.
