Cold War radar station eyed as wind power
This article was posted on 7/4/10, so it is extremely recent.
It looks like the GSA is currently in control of the facility, and a sale to the Penobscot Indian Nation is being considered for them to build and
operate a wind farm.
The facility was originally an over the horizon backscatter radar installation, with a 33,000 square foot computer facility in Bangor. It was taken
off of active military use in 1994 and was then opperated for some time by Martin Marietta (currently Lockheed Martin). They apprently monitored air
traffic and helped to study solar flares and other atmospheric anomolies, until 1997 when it was shutdown for good.
Perhaps the elevator that the OP saw was access to underground tunnels where the original radar equipement fed from the three main array sites, back
to their repective outpost buildings.
The fact that a sale to an Indian Tribe is being considered, tells me that there is nothing under ground that could be nefarious....They would never
sell a facility like that, especially to what is considered a foreign nation. My 2 cents.
