GPS of missile sites

I was unable to find 570 - 7 while I was in Tuson.

Looking for a GPS list.

How did 570-05 look?

I visited it in 2009, very sad to see it in such disarray.

Was in Tucson yesterday biding a road resurfacing job for Pima county. Stopped by 0-5 on my way back home. Site looks kind of bad there are a lot of houses built around the area. I guess the county must have taken ownership of the access road and placed authorized road signs up calling it Missile Base Road.

I looked for 0-1 back in '04--didn't find it. Nothing looked familiar there after 30 years. 0-9 was obvious.

Looked at the link. Linking from the site list, I get a map of the Portland. OR area for 0-1, 0-2, and Whiteman's L-1. 3 major errors is a BUST!

An even better site for coordinates: http://asuwlink.uwyo.edu/~jimkirk/titan2.html

You had a hard time finding 0-1 because the gravel company that owns the place and has done some serious bulldozing. Short story: went out to AZ in June 2009 (when I officially became a museum volunteer), I took a trip out to BioSphere2. I made a comment to my friend, "I can't shake the feeling that there's a Titan site nearby". We passed 0-9 on the way, so I knew 0-1 was close. Went home and looked it up on Google Maps; the turn-off for BS2 is about a mile up the road from 0-1. Go figure :lol:

The last time I saw 0-5 was during that same trip in 2009. It didn't look too bad; the access portal was partially dug up (and had a hive of bees!), and it looked like someone was trying to dig up cooper wiring/piping.

0-7 is privately owned and has a house on-site. The owner values his privacy, so I would recommend against showing up uninvited.

I genuinely loose sleep over the thought of how people have squandered these sites. It's not right, especially considering what you guys went through to keep the on-alert.

Nick! The military does what it always dose.

No longer need it! take what you can use and scrap the rest. While at DM from 63 to 66 I was hundreds of good planes choped up.

I almost had a heart attack when a salvage yard guy I talked to said he scrapped out his LCCFCs and CMG equipment racks years ago. (Give it a few years and the heart attack might catch up!) I guess I should be happy with the ALOC equipment I already own.
