There is only one other place on the west coast that the Navy can drop live ordnance - that place is Fallon, NV.

i want to add something. 3-5 mins after i posted this, the ATS website was
down for a few minutes.
Sure, it must not have to do something with that but for me it is a bit weird that
ATS has gone offline for a few minutes after i posted this thread.

This is actually very interessting:
If you go north / northeast , following the Tower Rd to the end where the mountains start - you will see a crop cirkle / Star of David at the cross road.
I cant remember seeing this spot on any collection of interesting Google Earth Secret Spots !
My question is: is that Crop Cirkle / Star - a point of entry to the underground base ?
A: If you are referring to the star in North range, it's a high-speed camera setup that covers various angles of a test site.
- And whats with all those roads between from city China Lake and the mountains in north ?
A: The roads lead up to various sites that include petrolyph and archological areas, a high energy RF test site, the Coso Geothermal plant and various remote camera, LADR, RADAR and other sensors that record the testing and training that NAWC-WD, VX-9, VX-31 (AKA Weapons Test Squadron) and others perform in the R2508 range complex.
East just outside the city, there are some strange small buildings in the road system called 1st street, 2nd street and so on.
A: If you are talking about the Pilot Plant Road complex, that is a DoD RDT&E facility. That's all I'll say about that.
