Hillsboro (spelled "Hillsborough" on the FCC record for the above license) is the western terminus of the L5 system originating at Lillyville, PA.  The L5 system ends here and was never continued west, although an underground building was constructed outside of Kansas City.  The underground is currently empty, and the microwave radio is turned down, although the site remains a major junction of fiber optic cables, and also has a 4ESS toll switch for the AT&T network.  Hillsboro is also a Ground Entry Point for the Combat Ciders air/ground network in support of the National Command Authorities Airborne Command Post system.
