The WAMCATS naval radio station at the head of the Resurrection Bay, which connected Seward to other U.S. coastal cities, ceased operation in 1930 after 13 years of operation. Before WAMCATS, the Washington-Alaska Military Cable and Telegraph System, most communications throughout Alaska was by mail delivered on dog sled. The last of the abandoned World War I era buildings, on the banks of the Resurrection River opposite the main runway at the Seward Airport, succumbed to erosion during high water and flooding last summer.
