        This snippet from the President Ford Library further supports the conclusion that there was a GEP at Mt Weather (unless the USAICA had another ABNCP GEP location):

        "USAICA operates a UHF terminal
        in the 200 - 400 MHz range, The equipment,
        dedicated to NEACP, is operated on an on-call
        basis, Frequencies and procedures are is-
        sued separately in the USAICA NEACP Support Plan.


        The US Army Interagency Communications Agency aka ICS, had a Winchester Va mailing address but was no doubt based within Mt Weather.


        Branch 1 Va is listed in an AT&T tariff(previously posted) on "Air-Ground Radio System # 2, which included many of the well known GEP locations.

          LOTS of interesting stuff. High Point and Raven Rock are redacted in the document text but not in some hand written notes at the end. Among other things it notes clearly that there will only be two underground site in operation beginning in 1960. Discusses the merits of sending various staffers from the NSC and other agencies to one underground location or another.

          It notes that Raven Rock has the ability for "direct communication" with the CIA relocation site in Warrenton.

          The last point of the memo is:

          "Every effort should be made to get XXXXXXXXXX communications facilities underground at the earliest possible date because they are extremely vulnerable above ground and because of the heavy dependence placed by all of the relocation agencies on the central switching center of the Interagency Communications System at XXXXXXXXXXXX."

          (source in files section)
          Memo to General Cutler from J. Patrick Coyne regarding the readiness status of selected relocation sites for nuclear weapons for United States national security. Memo. National Security Council. SECRET. Issue Date: Jan 3, 1958. Date Declassified: Mar 07, 1997. Unsanitized. Incomplete. 2 page(s).
