Similar to this on the side of the hill of your "odd" building.,125.784053&spn=0.005599,0.008032&t=k&hl=en

The odd building is just to the NE.

And this is definitely one further to the west:,125.711387&spn=0.005603,0.008032&t=k&hl=en

(Feel free to submit these. You kind of "own" North Korea. ;-)

That last one is armed by the way. You can see single missile launcers with their missiles if you look at it in Google Earth.

I looked around more and quit after finding another fouteen sites. There seems to be two types.

One is a circle with from four to ten launchers around it and a slot in the middle with what I assume is a radar or launch director. They are usually in lower areas.

The other is usually on the edge of a ridge with a connecting path leading to the top or other side of the ridge where i suppose the radar is positioned. These sites don't have central parks and all the launchers ar arrayed off of the center in random or somtimes herringbone pattern. These sites usually have one or two very long buildings just down a hill. I ecentually quit looking for the launchers (quite small) and just scanned below the ridgetops for these long buildings.

Thanks for the great tips. I'll post the missile sites you discovered; however, don't feel I own North Korea. Part of the reason I've concentrated there is to help build interest so others will start peering into the super-secretive dictatorship.

The North Korean regime has worked so hard to keep a tight lid on even the most basic of information, there is something rewarding about being able meander down the runway of one of their airbases and count the dandilions sprouting from the middle of the taxiways.

So, by all means, post away.
