This is a discussion thread for the following file:<br><br><b><a href=http://www.googleearthhacks.com/dlfile20535/The-DEW-Line.htm>The DEW Line</a></b><br><br>The DEW line spans/spanned across the top of Canada, which was designed to detect attacks by the USSR across the polar cap. Typically consisting of doppler radars and communications antennas (tropospheric scatter antennas), they usually had a short runway for DC-3/C-130 access and often a beach landing site for delivering heavy equipment by sea.<br />
