This could be part of what the attached article talks about.

The Elephant Cage, measuring about 850 ft wide by 100 ft high, was an circular array of towers that supported a large antenna array. The antennas were capable of locating signals thousands of miles away with an accuracy of 3 degrees or better. Jeff B, a signals intelligence analyst at Clark from 1987-91, confirms the Double Deuce (6922nd Electronic Security Squadron) used the Elephant Cage for intelligence listening during the Cold War era. Go to the following site for more information on the AN/FLR-9 "Flare-9/Elephant Cage": http://www.fas.org/irp/program/collect/an-flr-9.htm. Jeff also adds, "It was the best assignment in the world!"
To our knowledge no elephants were ever kept inside the AN/FLR-9.

Good work Dalenz, looks like you found it :)

according to the article dalenz refers to, these arrays exist also at Mizawa Air Force Base in Japan, Clark Air Base in the Philippines and also in Alaska.

I looked in GE at Mizawa Air Base and even though the resolution is low, I believe you can see the circular antenna array to the NE of the air base.

So i think that the mysterious area in Nth America holds even more secrets than just the array itself! ;)

**sorry, i meant NW of the air base**
