So I won't really bother to re-hash it all, I just wanted to mention the sites in Masset and Gander are the last known operational FRD-10 HFDF arrays in existence.  That's pretty neat in my books.  Unfortunately there aren't public tours of either facility, for obvious reasons.  Aesthetically I think they're quite amazing.  Hopefully someday I'll be passing through Masset or Gander and get a chance to see them.
