Greetings, I was at the 719th AC&W sq in Sparrevohn Alaska from Jan 55 to Jan 56. Always looking for anyone who was there around that period. Here are a couple web pages I made up. One is a bunch of pictures from Sparrevohn in 1955. The other one is a magazine published at Elmendorf AFB in 1955. They are slow loading so be patient. Chuck Sunder

Just looked at data for Bedford AFS, VA In 1970 when at Klamath AFS, CA, I was told we had the second smallest comissary in the USAF. Bedford had 4 square feetr less than Klamath making Bedford the smallest. Those were the days.

I am trying to contact radar repairmen, technicians, and operators who served as military or civilian personnel at any time between 1958 and 1983. These radar were deployed throughout the U.S., NATO countries, Korea and around the globe. I would like to find people who worked on these systems because I am investigating whether or not people working on these radars were exposed to radiation emitted by this equipment. I am informed that radar systems using technologies including magnetron, klystron and thyratron components are more likely to emit this kind of radiation. I would like to hear from anyone who worked in and around such equipment or who can put me in touch with other people from all branches of the service who might have information regarding potential exposure to radiation produced by these radar systems. Please e-mail me at . Thank you, Earl Bender

Ive been reading about the SCR 270 radar set with interest, becuase I was a radar maintnance man on the SCR 270 from 1942 to 1944 at Kettle Cape and Nikolski one Umnak island and one day I was sent from Alaska to Drew Field Fl for a Radar survey course and the only thing I remember is seeing the SCR 270 antenna outside of a building so I asked what are they doing in there and I was told that the signal corp was trying to bounce radar signals off of the moon and that was in 1943. Oh yeah I did see a B25 Mitchell bomber with a 75mm cannon at that field and the joke was that when they fired that cannon it would fly backward.
