Another site was in the Confusion Mountains, "down the road a piece"....
Thanks for posting those pictures and descriptions. I, too, am very
interested in the old AT&T microwave routes.
The Autovon site is particularly interesting. It looks like quite a large
building, and has an architectural style I've never seen before. Are there
any defense installations in the area?
The FCC database shows three stations in the Delta area. There's the
AUTOVON station and the station adjacent to it, and another station about 5
miles to the NW in downtown Delta.
You make a excellent point about the possibility that American Tower may
remove the microwave antennas at the AT&T towers they've bought. It might
be advisable for us to document the azimuths of those antennas, since the
data about many of the old links have been purged from the FCC database,
and the antennas provide the only clues as to where they went.
BTW, I have a small web site devoted to AT&T microwave links in the
Washington DC area, at http://bellsystem.homestead.com It's still very
incomplete, with only a few stations listed, but it will give you an idea
of what I'm trying to do.
Let me know if I can be of any help with your project.
