Great web site!! Been here at Elmendorf for 6 yrs. with a one yr to Osan in the middle. Outstanding historical pixs of all the radar sites.

Dick Barrett`s `The Radar Pages` , at www.radarpages.co.uk, (see his entry of 11/01/2001, below) should be read by all USAF radar troops ... they`re fantastic. Very enjoyable reading, and a challenge to compare radar systems. Besides having some RAF beauts of what we call `humor in uniform`, he has added some provided by Gene. I`m sure Dick would appreciate your comments.

So, sorry for any conveniance and I look forward to seeing you at the new site. Thanks to Tom and Gene for their help with my site and for producing the wonderful Radomes site.
