Calling all Gap-Filler Radar maintenance technicians and other knowledgeable individuals: We are attempting to pin-point all gap-filler radar sites in the CONUS. If you know the exact location, such as the name of the mountain or peak, or the directions from a reference point (town or geological feature), please let us know. Also, if you can provide additional info, such as whether or not the radar ever became operational (limited or fully), with dates, please let us know that, too. Of course, if you have pictures or maps, we would like to obtain copies of those as well. Thank you!!

August 19, 2000 while watching a Denver Bronco football game at private camping area club house got to talking a a guy about vacations. He said, “recently he had been to Saratoga Springs, NY.” I told him my wife was from Saratoga. He said he had been stationed there in the Air Force. His name is Bob Walters (comm center) and he was there the same time I was he was discharged in June 1961. I remembered he was from New York City (Brooklyn). I all so remembered he said that he was going home, long enough to pack up and move west and never live in the East again. That is what he did. He summers in Colorado mountains winters in Laughlin, Nevada

LOVE THIS COLLECTION! It brought back a lot of memories of the 667th AC&W Sq., Hofn, Iceland. We were ala=ways told we were the end of the DEW line. I will have to see what I can find for pictures and the like. Incidentally, when I got my orders to go to H-3, nobody could tell me where I was going. It listed an FPO 09571 (I think) which was a Navy fleet post office. Somebody checked it out at Great Lakes and clued me in that I was going to the end of the world. (I was at Chanute AFB Illinois 2865 GEEIA Sq. when I got my orders.)

Tom, Your deactivation movie of Ft. Fisher brings back a lot of feelings about our closure at Montauk. There are really mixed feelings of relief of having it over and a real sadness for all the work that has gone on so long by so many to do the job we were asked to do. Thanks to you and Gene for this web site. I continue to check it and the members only Radomes site on almost a daily basis. Miles
