- The Mounds AT&T Autovon switch, microwave junction,
cable junction, has been sold to Frosty Towers Inc.
The site was shut down for the Autovon switch starting
on 7/92, closed the switch 11/92. There is an empty
area just to the right of the recieving area, that is
labeled 1ESS, which was possibly removed in 11/94,
and possibly moved to Cheyene Mountain,
according to notes. Anyone got
a picture of a 1ESS switch?
The Autovon testboards, and much more is still
there. Other than the 30X40 area labeled 1ESS,
the battery plant, and some office furniture in the
offices area, it looks like they just locked up and left.
Batteries were removed at various times, up to 2002.
Mounds was a big site, in addition to the normal
autovon operations, it had a microwave junction,
and then a cable junction. The site was added to at
least once. There ia also on the diagrams a "cable vault"
but we are not sure how to access it yet.
There is much inside the building that references blast
detectors, but nothing out side that looks like the normal
blast detectors found at other AT&T sites. (the metal hat
on the concrete square pylon)
The site was also on commercial water and possibly sewage.
The site was also an Echo/Fox site, with the base station
equipment still in place. The antennas were on the tower but
just smaller standard areo type antennas.
