Looking for anyone who ever served at the 798th ACWRON Radar (Turkey Hill) from 1951-1968. Check out Unit Reunions for more info. This is a great service to those former Scope Dopes and Radio folks and all the support folks who were asssigned to these sites during their Air Force careers.

I have worked for the FAA for about 40 years now. I have been primarily involved with ATC radars mostly longrange. I started at FT. Heath, Winthrop, Ma. back in 1961. At that time it was a typical AC and W site. It was joint use FAA/Air Force. Presently I am a Radar technical evaluator. We have two joint use sites in New England. Bucks Harbor and N. Truro. I inspect these facilities jointly with the air force every three years. I have some tidbits I could contribute to the group if you would like. I just inspected a joint use facility in Ft. Green, Fla. This site was originally located at Ft Lonesome,which is now closed. I find this web site very interesting as I have been involved with the air force for many years. Tnx

I was stationed at Cape Romanzoff, AFS from May 1974 to May 1975 with Det 8 1931st Communcations Squadron, in other words, I worked in the comm center. This is a GREAT site, JJ brought it to my attention and it was neat looking at pictures of where I spent one LONG, COLD year! But I will never forget the people that were there when I was and would like to know how we all ended up and where everyone is today.
