1998 - A Visit to Senneterre Jean Guy Lizotte


May, 1998

I first communicated with Jean Guy Lizotte via the Internet in March 1998 in the hopes of obtaining some detail on the radar station which was located in Senneterre between 1953 and 1988. Ongoing communication continued via the Internet. He agreed to visit the site of the original radar station and take some photos of the remains. The following photographs depict the situation as it exists today.
