A Brief History

Also known as Point Peter to the locals, this location is the MACS (Military Aeronautical Communications System) Trenton HF radio transmitter site. Originally a range for the Bombing and Gunnery school at Picton, the site was also the launch pad for the Avro Arrow test models.

Reply to @prattsoplenty: I grew up in Kingston, which isn't quite local, but I've always pronounced this as "point PEA-tree".

Reply to @david: Those who grew up in the "County" call it Point Peter or simply the Point.
