Opano Radar Site
On December 7, 1941, an SCR-270B Radar located at this site tracked incoming Japanese aircraft for over 30 minutes until they were obscured by the island ground clutter. This was the first wartime use of radar by the United States Military, and led to its successful application throughout the theater.
