>Hi Terry,
>Yes, www.coldwar-c4i.net has no connection to any military service, government
>agency or other organization.  Its purpose is to document Cold War-era
>national security infrastructure - physical facilities, systems, procedures,
>etc.  Most of the content so far relates to U.S. defense, but I'm eager to
>include material for any other countries, including Soviet-bloc nations.  As
>you can see, the collection covers a wide range of topics, reflecting the
>diversity of interests among the contributors who provide much of the
>content.  You'll also note that it's completely disorganized; the site began
>as just a place to share pictures and documents among researchers, and
>simply grew without much structure - new material is usually just added to
>the top unless it belongs under an existing topic.
>I maintain another site, www.long-lines.net, which is devoted to the networks,
>equipment and operations of AT&T's former Long Lines Department.  This site,
>too, has a national-security aspect since AT&T was (and still is) heavily
>involved in defense communications. 
>If the members wish, I'll be glad to notify this group of any additions to
>my sites.  In addition, there's a very active list, with over 1,000 members,
>devoted to Cold War infrastructure and common-carrier networks of the era.
>The URL to join the group or view the archived messages is:

>answer questions and assist with any sign-up issues.
