My friend recently returned from his honeymoon, during which he drove way out east to the coast. Somewhere in Ontario (or perhaps Quebec), he came across a series of cable structures he’s hoping someone here can identify. (I told him he’d know in a day ;))
They consisted of pairs of towers perhaps 15m / 50 feet tall (with cables strung between the tops and the bottoms, with vertical cables strung between these main cables. Next to each of these constructions was a small brown shack about the size of an outhouse.
Teh lame diagram, not to scale: |\ /| | ------ | | |||||| | | _______ | /\ |/ \| ||
There were many of these pairs of towers, apparently not oriented in any particular direction, and some of perhaps differing heights. The location was likely near the Trans-Canada, but not for certain.
My guess was some sort of low-rent radio telescope, but my Google-fu returns nothing. Anyone got an idea what he saw?
