        "The general pattern was alternating buildings (which house below-ground
        repeater equipment) and bunkers every 2 miles. The bunkers are to protect
        splices. The rugged coaxial cables came in huge reels — 2 miles worth on each."


        Err, wasn't Coax20 limited to less than 1750 ft on a reel?

        And what's with huts every 4 miles? I thought the hive mind conclusion was
        that equalizing repeaters, with the far bigger vaults, might have had huts;
        but not lesser ones.
