Abstract : The proposed action covered by this Environmental Assessment (EA) includes construction and operation of a relay node of the Ground Wave Emergency Network (GWEN) in northeastern Nevada. This relay node will provide essential connections with adjacent nodes in the network. The major features of a GWEN relay node and associated environmental impacts common to all sites are addressed in the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for the Final Operational Capability (FOC) phase of GWEN, which was published in September 1987 by the Electronic Systems Division, Hanscom Air Force Base, Massachusetts. This EA is tiered from that FEIS and addresses site-specific conditions at the candidate GWEN sites (CGSs) for this particular site search area (SSA).
