SUBJECT: CZECHS SELECT HILL 718 FOR BALLISTIC MISSILE
DEFENSE RADAR SITE

REF: PRAGUE 591

1. (SBU) The Czech MFA informed the Embassy on July 3 that
the State Security Council selected the proposed BMD radar
site. The site (hill 718) near Trokavec, in the Brdy
Military District, is one of the two original sites offered
by the Czech Government and one of the locations of the
original MDA survey work. This decision is final and will
not/not need approval by the cabinet.

2. (SBU) The survey team was unable to visit this site
during its last visit in April. Accordingly, MDA will have
to return to the site to develop a detailed site layout
before the in-depth geotech work can begin at this location.
The survey team will also need to conduct an unexploded
ordnance survey. The Czech government is willing to host the
survey team as soon as arrangements can be made for travel.

3. (SBU) The next bi-lateral missile defense coordination
meeting will take place July 9.
