Nice photos of Angeles Point. The top horn goes to Mt. Sulivan on Saltspring Island and the two lower horns go to Mt. Blyn.

There is a smaller LEC tower next to it which connects Mt. Ellis (aggregation point for western Clallam Co) to the Port Angeles CO via a passive reflector somewhere along Hurricane Ridge Road / Walking Horse Ln. I have a good idea where the reflector should have been but have not been able to pinpoint it. I believe the original purpose of this circuit was to move radar data from Makah AFS on Bahokus Peak.

One interesting thing to note about this site is the size of the building. Somewhat larger than a typical ATT MW repeater. Usually this would indicate a switch but its not an AUTOVON site nor does it have multiple paths which would require switching.

Could the size of the building have something to do with the underwater cable going to Alaska?

I considered this a possibility but I didn't see a clear path from the building to the shoreline as is the case for most cable stations.
