Warin. Former Backporch Integrated Wideband Comms System troposcatter site (definitely no radar).
The antennas id'ed as "Warin Long Lines" were troposcatter antennas, 120 feet tall, built in 1967; two 120 footers replaced two 60 footers.
The LRC 3s at the Warin end were looking towards Phu Mu.
The RCA dishes - big 60 foot CIRCULAR antennas - were supported by civilian contractors (Page and possibly Philco Ford).
- In 1966-67 Warin was a STRATCOM base part of 29th Signal Grp
- The circuit started in Manila, PI and then went to Nha Trang.
One circuit then went Nha Trang-Warin, Bangkok, King's Palace; the other went Nha Trang, Warin, Korat, Bangkok, King's Palace.
- Warin was one of the biggest comms links with Vietnam with very large systems pointing to Nha Trang and Danang, with thru circuits to other places
and lots of antennas!
