Just looking it up in the fas website, the sa4 design by the north gate dates back to 1967. The SA8 they had at the Nellis show starts at 1980.

The mobile sites you see at Cedar Pass are the threats used in Red Flag, but folded up so they look a bit different. I'm not sure what radar is used for the fixed sites at Cedar Pass.

Do they launch planes from Groom using the VHF freq that the Janet's use, or UHF, or simulcast on both bands so all traffic can hear?
