Here is a link to a recent newspaper article about the old AN/FPS-24 radar tower at the former Blaine AFS, WA. The structure is currently on the market as a home. The owner is asking $1.5M.

A few .pdf issues of "Echoes" will show up as results of Google searches (without any login to either radomes.org or afrmaonline.og).

Steve - Radomes and AFRMA members can get any issue of Echoes online by logging in to either http://radomes.org or http://afrmaonline.org, depending on which you're a member of. Go to the Members Only section of the web site, and you'll find a button or link to Echos there. It will be delivered as a PDF in color in most cases. I'll set your record for electronic delivery vs paper by mail. You'll get an email when a new issue is available.

I'll have a look at getting this setting into the user member data update if it's not already there.

Indeed, it will save us some money for mailing. We're able to use "Non-Profit" imprint, which gets our cost for mailing down pretty well (less than 50% of First Class), but we have to mail at least 200 copies at a time to do this. At 200 copies, we about break even from First Class after paying the annual imprint fee of over $200.

Is "Echoes" available online? I've looked for a way to opt out of hard copy delivery but couldn't find it. Seems we could save you some money if we could just read it on the site (and if it's already there, apologies in advance for not looking thoroughly enough).

As seen in the most-recent "Google Earth" / "Google Maps" aerial imagery, the former Fortuna AFS, ND (Z-27) has now been demolished ... except for the AN/FPS-35 radar tower, roads and foundation pads, and the off-site GATR facility. Sad. :-(

Excellent video documentary below posted by Tom. It's concerns not only the inception of; but the reclamation of the land occupied by the Mill Valley Radar Station. I have never visited Mt 'Tam' as I was stationed further north at Point Arena, but it is a place I will visit in the near future. Thanks Tom.
