Re: [coldwarcomms] Passive Repeaters in N.E.?
- I am not aware of any AT&T Long Lines routes that far
north in NH. Bell very well may have put something in
the last 20 years (post divestiture) of a short haul
nature, I don't know.
However AT&T did build a microwave shot to Burlington VT
over 40 years ago in support of WCAX TV using
reflectors. I believe this was a TV only route with one
terminal at WCAX. I know of at least three repeater
sites S of Burlington VT that had guyed towers with
reflector panels for ground-based parabolics that
supported this route.
American Tower site number 88340 (and 88343)
These sites (and the Bristol site which was sold to a
CATV co.) can been seen on:
