Hey Mike if you are going to Chernobyl remember to visit Chernobyl-2 the "Russian Woodpecker" also known as "Eye of Moscow". This is very big shortwave over horizontal radar "Duga-2" type directed to West Europe.
It was build to detect the planes and rockets flying from USA and West Europe. The Chernobyl powerhouse was mainly built to power this secret gigantic radar. Nowadays you can see it on Google Earth or maps near to Chernobyl complex The fairy tales for bad children say the radar operated on the same frequencies as human brain. Rumors say it was designed to make Western soldiers insane and lazy in case of attack from the West.
As a side effect of this trip, now when you click on images within articles to get a larger view of the image, you are taken into (right now a very basic) PHXCMS image viewer where you can easily flip between images.
Some old guy sitting behind a counter asked to tell you this michael. When you reach the zone, find someone named nitrate, he will have a special delivery package that you need to get back to me. Beware of some weird looking dogs that might be roaming around the area. That is all, and he said to tell you good hunting.
