Do you think At&t would put on hazmat suits just to get your phone working again so you can call mom?

Ive seen those pictures before. Part of me wonders if those are not of another of many at&t bunkers passed off as the big hole. Ive been out there a few times in the past few years and at no point has the facility ever been abandoned.

That is what I was thinking. I have been out there twice and it was anything but deserted.

The first time I pulled on to the road there was a group of people standing on the porch of the home to the left. A big rig was parked on the right hand side with the motor running. In the field there were two tractors tilling and some farm hand looking guys milling around. When I got to the metal barricade there were two black hummers (H1) parked on the opposite side. They were slightly up the road and parked facing away from me.

By the time I turned around and got back to the start of the road everything was deserted. The big rig was shut off and the driver's door was open. One of the tractors was still puffing exhaust in to the air. All the people were gone though.

It was definitely spooky. I find it hard to believe it is just an abandoned AT&T switching station. Of course, the last time I was out there was 2000 or there abouts.

AT&T refers to these sites as "project offices" although they won't say exactly what sort of projects they work on there. But it is all communication related.

In total, there are 5 project offices, all designed pretty much the same. Only one of which is actually abandoned.

The other sites can be found via google earth at:

37.561650, -78.762881 - Buckingham (This is the abandoned one)

38.125669 -78.286215 - Peters Mountain

39.266990, -77.706378 - Short Hill

39.712420 -77.972655 - Hearthstone Mountain

These coordinates are in decimal degrees, to avoid any confusion.

I know this is an old thread, but its worthy of a bump. I rode out to the entrance the other week, and the front gate has been upgraded, it now hosts a very tall black fence behind the pop up road barrier, the black fence seemed to stretch quite a ways. Also, if you bring up the facility side by side in google and bing maps, you can tell there has been recent digging activity at the site, google appears to be a little bit older, but there has been trench digging with some type of poles installed, then the bing map shows an almost hegaxonal area of digging around where the bunker is in the ground, not sure what that is about. I cant tell either, but it almost looks like there is a double fence around the perimiter as well. I think something rather large is going on at the site now.

for those not familiar with where it is- follow this link maps.google.com...,+nc&hl=en&sll=35.782471,-79.073887&sspn=0.001099,0.001961&t=h&hnear=Big+Hole+Rd,+Pittsboro,+Cha tham,+North+Carolina+27312&z=15

Tropospheric Scatter Communications Networks
"Tropospheric scatter (known as "troposcatter" among practitioners) is a method of transmitting and receiving microwave radio signals over considerable distances – often up to 300 km.... Tropospheric scatter is a fairly secure method of propagation as dish alignment is critical, making it extremely difficult to intercept the signals, especially if transmitted across open water, making them highly attractive to military users."

Tropospheric Scatter Communications Networks
"The Tropospheric scatter phenomenon has been used to build both civilian and military communication links in a number of parts of the world, including:-
AT&T Corporation
Chatham, NC - Buckingham, VA - Charlottesville 2, VA - Leesburg 5, VA - Hagerstown 2, MD"

Yes, I know all about the troposcatter purpose it once held, what Im saying is it is being used for something completely different now, and there has been a LOT of new activity at the site.

The ATT Corp has lots of militaries it seems. It made me an impression, now I didn't know they supply the military as well with network and all sorts of telecom.
