The entire facility is probably fence enclosed but the exact lines are indistinct.. The northwest portion of the facility appears to be undergoing expan- sion, with 14 antennas and the third control build- ing under construction. Identification and orientation of the rhombic antennas, as given in Table 1, were accomplished by means of the characteristic diamond shape of the clearings and by the positions of guy-anchor bases, the small scale of the photography pre- cluding identification of individual' antenna masts; For this reason, the given azimuths and antenna dimensions are only approximate and are not considered accurate enough for ex- tended detailed study. Also, the possible corre- spondents, as listed, are simply the result of ex- tending great-circle arcs along the approximate azimuths and noting which locations they went through or near. 25X 25X1' TOP SECRET Approved For Release P 2/8t;(fD 78T0543 A000500130021-3 25X1 25X1 25X1 D FIGURE 2.
