Everton Electronic Scoring Site
The Everton Electronic Scoring Site is located off Arkansas State Highway 206, near the city of Harrison in Boone County, Arkansas. The Mini-MUTE sites are located in rural agricultural areas in the surrounding counties of Baxter and Marion, as well as one site in Howell County, Missouri. Mini-MUTE site 4MM1 is located in Baxter County, roughly 1 mile east of Big Flat, near the intersection of County Road 81 and Arkansas State Highway 14. Mini-MUTE site 4MM4 is located in Howell County, Missouri, approximately 2 miles south of the town of Caulfield. The site is situated north of the intersection of Missouri State Highway 101 and County Road YY and accessed by State Highway 101. Mini-MUTE site 4MM5, located in Marion County, Arkansas, is south of Bull Shoals Lake and accessed by County Road 227. The sites varied topographically and are fenced for security purposes.
The Everton Electronic Scoring Site facility, constructed by the USAF in 1994-1995, consists of a building with many attached trailers that allow transfer of complex radar systems. The 6.94 acre property is leased from Denton Yearns, a private landowner. The property is bordered to the north by Old Everton Road, which is lined with trees. The site is bordered to the south by Arkansas State Highway 206 and to the east by grazing land. The western border of the property is L-shaped to accommodate a pond and grazing land used by the adjacent landowner. The facility is located in the northeast corner of the property. A chain-link fence with gated entry surrounds the facility and a barbed wire fence surrounds the entirety of the leased property. Four sheds are located northwest of the facility and were used for hazardous material and general storage. A power shed is located west of the main facility and a break area with a few picnic tables is found to the south. The facility grounds cover approximately 30 percent of the leased 6.94-acre property.
The Mini-MUTE sites, constructed in 1996-1997, consists of a parcel of land measuring roughly 800 feet by 800 feet surrounded by a barbed wire fence with a gated entry. Inside these barbed wire fences are gravel pads for the radar units ranging from 120 feet by 120 feet to 150 feet by 150 feet. These pads are all surrounded by a chain-link security fence with gated entry. Mini-MUTE sites 4MM1 and 4MM5 have electrical and telephone lines with the accompanying utility poles and transformers. Power is supplied to the sites by Entergy, Inc. Telephone service is provided to the sites by ALLTELL and North Arkansas Telephone Co. None of the Mini-MUTE sites contain any structures. Three service trucks are used by the facility personnel and can be found parked at the Electronic Scoring Site or Mimi-MUTE sites. Grazing rights inside the initial barbed wire fence have been secured with the landowners via written or verbal agreement.
