This was on the Travel Channel a few months back on a show called "Off Limits" which featured several locations around Hawaii. This clip in only the first two minutes or so of the segment. The rest of the segment they went into the central command offices that monitor H-3 activities, the underground tunnels, etc.

There is also a huge underground military facility under Red Hill that not a whole lot of people know about.

PS. i call BS about them using it to monitor traffic. Why TF would they facilitate traffic awareness from a location such as that??? Makes no sense to me.

Coast Guard Omega Station:



The Coast Guard Omega Station (OMSTA) presented a unique challenge. The station, located on the windward side near the mouth of the Trans-Koolau Tunnels, is part of an eight-station, worldwide network which allows any aircraft or ship to determine its location to within a mile. OMSTA causes large insulated objects near the station to become energized, providing a small shock to anyone coming in contact with these items. HDOT was concerned that "surprise shocks" to workers on H-3 might result in a fall or other accident. In some cases, workers in sensitive areas were required to wear gloves or rubber boots. To prevent any effect on H-3 travelers, a device known as a Faraday Shield was installed over a short section of the highway near the mouth of the tunnels to reduce the electric field. The shield consists of six three-eighth-inch-diameter wires on each side of the road spaced one vertical meter apart and eight three-eighth-inch-diameter wires overhead. A wire mesh is incorporated into the pavement below to complete the shield.

The OMEGA radionavigation system, developed by the United States Navy for military aviation users, was approved for full implementation in 1968. When the eight station chain became operational, day to day operations were managed by the United States Coast Guard in partnership with Argentina, Norway, Liberia, France, Japan and Australia. Coast Guard personnel operated two US stations - one in LaMoure, North Dakota and the other in Haiku, Hawaii. The Omega Station went through a decommissioning ceremony and shut down 30 September 1997.

The H3 tunnel shelter in the off limits show is wet, can collapse and has no beds or lights.

If anyone goes there you can visit me at at the Coast Guard Omega Station, four walls, dry with a bed.

Faraday Shield? Faraday Shield?!?! Like Daniel Faraday, mad scientist/genius physicists from the popular ABC TV show Lost? Also filmed in Hawaii!

I'm down for tunnel dwelling if y'all let me join. I too will raid my hospital for supplies and food. Tell me more about Red Hill infrastructure and I'll start loading it up now on night runs!

As for H3 location...don't forget extra ammo to kill off the State Hospital crazies who will be running for those hills. They're extra cray and need sniper action for bullet to head. I can be lookout? Phone Post
