Activated: May 29, 1943; Deactivated: October 16, 1943. Eugene Filter Center.
March 6, 1943: "Regarding establishment of Yellow Point Aircraft Warning Station. Three miles of telephone line construction required to connect observation post. A truck trail is now being constructed by Association will pass very close to this observation post. This truck trail connects with the rock road at Gunter. Full housing set-up for observer will be required, including living quarters and woodshed. Cost of these facilities difficult to estimate on account of labor. By using some of the Association personnel, who will be available, to assist the carpenter, it is estimated that the buildings can be constructed for $550. To clear this point for observation, it is estimated that 100,000 board feet of timber would have to be cut, to provide good observation. The cost of this timber would be $200." (Letter to W.N. Parke, AWS Inspector, from Western Lane FPA)
May 4, 1943: "The Fourth Fighter Command has approved the establishment of Yellow Point as an observation post. You may proceed with the completion of the establishment of this post right away. However, the post is not to be manned until Captain Morgan sets the exact time of activation. You should therefore get the post ready for occupancy and notify us in advance the date it can be manned so we can, in turn, advise Captain Morgan. Since Warden Oglesby has already proceeded to establish this post without authorization from either the Army or from us, we wish to emphasize that the post must not be activated and no calls should be sent prior to the time and date set by Captain Morgan." (Letter to the State Forester from James Frankland, USFS Engineering)
May 13, 1943: "The Army has authorized the activation of Yellow Point observation post as of noon, May 20, 1943. The code name for this post is Eugene 69, and after the first of June, it will change to Charlie Zero Seven." (Memorandum to the State Forester from James Frankland, USFS Engineering)
October 16, 1943: The Army deactivated this AWS observation post effective 1800 hours, this date.
