Before there was `Star Wars,` long before `Lord of the Rings there were: RADAR MEN FROM THE MOON - Episodes 1-12: Strategic targets on Earth are being destroyed by an unknown weapon. Government security head Henderson suspects it`s an `atomic ray` originating from the moon! He assigns Commando Cody, scientist and man of action with a secret flying suit, to investigate. Soon, Cody is battling Earth thugs in the pay of Krog the moon man and making trips in his experimental rocket to the moon itself, in a perilous and all but singlehanded effort to thwart the planned invasion of Earth. Takes three hours on DVD. (Video store in San Bernardino, Calif., has a Commando Cody `flying` suit, with its disarmly simple instructions next to dials mounted on the wearer`s chest: UP, DOWN, SLOW, FAST.)

Guys: Just go to `Radar Sites` on the left-hand menu, and type in `Ajo` for location. (Spelling counts.) Click on the respective links for `Ajo AFS` and `Ajo` ... and, voilą -- mystery solved! :-)

We have two entries for Carmi -- the manned Carmi AFS and the planned/not-built unmanned Carmi Gap-Filler Annex. Your comments obviously refer to the latter. Check out the former by goung to `Radar Sites` and entering `Carmi AFS` on the `Location` line. You will see that no change is needed. Further, we have recent photos which I took myself in May of last year. Enjoy!

Your are right. When i was stationed at Luke AFB in 1967- 70 it was still operational. I don`t know exactly when it closed but I believe there is now an ARSR-4 maintained by FAA at that location. Fellow Radar Chief

I am the nephew of Capt. Sixto Mangual. Though I had never met him I heard many stories about him from my father (Tato) and my aunts and uncles. I have a copy of the History Channels special. My son and daughter both saw the show. I`m greatful that we have this piece of history in our family and that I could share this with my family. I`m very proud of my uncle and the Mangual family name. To all the men and women who have served and are now serving in the arm forces...Thank You and God Bless you all.

It is 11:45 pm (Florida) Saturday evening, January 3. I have just finished watching and listening `live` on my computer to the successful landing of the Mars rover `Spirit.` An amazing experience for someone who, 40 years ago, was a radar operator using and operating the `latest` systems of the time!!!!!!

Happy New Year!! Finding this site was a great Christmas present to myself. Did anyone else ever get shocked checking or adding oil to the FPS/6 waveguide pressurizer? It`s been a long time but I remember the finger took the shock but the elbow got the punishment.
