Mt Parnitha. Former guidance radar for Nike Herc. system; used to be IFC for nearby 76th USAAD "D" Btry Kifisia

A remote terminal was also installed for HF communications via the European Command Control Console System (ECCCS) in the infamous "Cemetery Net" connecting all nuclear alert and storage sites over Western Europe.
In case of WW3 outbreak the US president would activate the go-codes to transmit Emergency Action Messages initiating a limited or a total nuclear response through this medium and the nucs would have been released to the Greek army.
The name "Cemetery Net" was actually chosen to show the life expectation of the units attached.
In case of sudden hostilities they would have been destroyed within 15 minutes!
