Thats a/the hardend repeater hut for a cable going from Winchester to
the FEMA Mt. Weather facility. There are cable markers. Older
transconitnental style cable found crossing Rt. 50/17. Along Rt. 601
there are additional cable markers. However, they are small wooden
spike like markers. The markers approaching the hut have an orange
metal plate attached to them. The sun has faded out the text/logo in
the upper white portion of the label so it may be a Bell Atlantic
cable for the houses up there. However after the hut there are
identical markers (all on the left side of the road heading towards
FEMA) heading toward the FEMA facility. These have metal numbers
nailed to them and above the numbers are color AT&T plastic labels.
I've got a picture of the one that points out the access road to the
C&P microwave tower north of the hut. Oddly that sign says AT&T ontop
of it even thought the facility was C&P.
The is another hut on Rt. 723 & Salem Church Rd. (I think thats the
name). Totally different, cinder block construction and now has a big
verizon sign on it even though the power meter is dead. Albert
LaFrance has pictures of those huts and I think cable markers at
