A Former CRC and USAF troposcatter communications site (2 Lima) in the 486L-Medcom alerting net. Connections with Humosa and Soller (Baleares).

MEDiterranean COMmunications network was spanning the Mediterranean from Spain to the Near East. A network with sites in Spain, Sardenia, Sicily, Italy, Greece, Crete and Turkey. The system comprised more than 6,000 route miles of communications consisting of giant troposheric scatter, line-of-sight, and microwave antennas, land lines, repeaters and multiplexing equipment for radio, teletype, facsimile and data communications.
With the 490L AUTOVON switches installed, a MEDCOM user was able to use the world-wide military communications network.
