CFS SenneterreThe location of RCAF Station Senneterre / CFS Senneterre, operational from 1953-1988, was a significant air defence station, as it was the fall-back in case North Bay (The Hole) were to be taken out by a nuclear strike. Some ruins of the buildings exist, but many are still intact and in use, re-purposed by local businesses.

CFS Senneterre GATR SiteA GATR (Ground-to-Air Transmit & Receive) station was set up in the early 1960s, and I'm unsure what of that location is still intact - it's up the road a little North of Senneterre.
Locals report there is nothing at the top of the mountain... I suspect the foundation and stumps of antenna poles will still be present. In late 2012 I tried to get to the Senneterre GATR site, unsuccessfully. The road is quite wet, and I didn’t have the right footwear. The trail would be passable by ATV, but there is a steel farm gate at the end. Rubber boots would be required to get to the base of the mountain.
