31° 17' 31" N, 81° 14' 41" E.

I would guess a military base since it is so close to Pakistan and India. They (China) were probably hoping...

Someone wrote a long time ago, "Many factors can be found below B1, but only one above." This was an ECM reference. Assuming this would also apply to P-1, perhaps B2 bounds would not need to be...
