Found an interesting place yesterday when out exploring (in the physical world). It shows up in Google Maps as well. It looks like a warehouse with
three inflatable radomes on it. It's behind a cemetery near the corner of route 92 and US 101, south of San Francisco. At the end of a maintenance
road in the cemetery, there are a number of "road closed' "trespassing prohibited" "authorized vehicles only" signs that get progressively more
strident. The structure itself is in a valley that hides it from view from any public space (that I could find). The land it's in is part of a water
reservoir that is secured. Anyway - thought I'd put it out there. The coordinates are 37.5153321,-122.3797264
A bit of digging on Google turned up this: epa-sites.findthedata.org...
It's owned by a company called Rantron Antenna Systems.
Further info... see item 6 on page 3 of this PDF showing zoning/planning applications:
"Consideration of a Use Permit Amendment, pursuant to Section 6500, a Coastal Development
Permit, pursuant to Section 6328.4, and a Resource Management District Permit, pursuant to
Section 6903 of the County Zoning Regulations, for the addition of a third antenna to an existing
radar test range facility
There's another company called Rand
tron Antenna Systems, based in Menlo Park, but I don't think the two are related. It appears that Rantron
might be associated with L-3 Communications
, which is a major US government contractor.
The info is out there if you look - it took me less than 10 mins to find all that.
