In 1956 when my dad, Vincent F. McCaul, retired from USN and went to work for Philco-Ford as Tech-Rep supporting the USAF 864 AC&W Squadron at Vincent AFB, Yuma, AZ. Remember the radar sweep causing the fluorscent lamps to `flash` in the bldgs at night! Also made a few trips with him (and others) to the Stone Cabin and Tacna `gap-filler` radar sites...recall there were scorpians everywhere when the doors were opened! Some names (USAF and Philco) that I remember: John Monteforde, USAF Don `Oakie` Reed, USAF Jan Howell, USAF Ross Seeley, Philco Joe LaFata, Philco Mr. Higuerra, Philco ...ironically, I went into USN and flew the seaward extension of the DEW Line out of Argentia, Newfoundland, Canada, and Keflavik, Iceland, as an AEW/CIC aircrewman aboard Lockheed/USN EC-121 `Warning Star` airborne early warning aircraft.

Attn Jack McKinney. I just mailed you an important historical document for your archives. It`s the 1952 Christmas menu from 666 AC&W.Oddly enough. the RC-121D you have on display at the museum, was one that I flew on as Radar Tech, out of McClellan in 1954-55.I bet you dont have the original APS-20B, APS-45,APA-56 et cetera radar equipment nor the Poloroid MTI equipment. In the spring of `54 we flew all our brass on the Super Connie to Peterson to show to ADC Commander Gen Chidlow whom I met when he boarded the A/C. Fifty years ago! maybe i should be in your museum?

Reference 754th Radar Sq/AC&W Sq, a slight correction. We left Oscoda AB, MI, in July 1951 with several truckloads of equipment from the site there, and arrived at Port Austin AFS in mid afternoon. By Midnight we were on the air and operational with our trusty AN/TPS-C, which we continued to operate until installation was completed on the FPS-3 the next year. My operations crew was on duty at Oscoda that morning when we shut down, and we were again on duty when we turned on the radar that night at Port Austin.

For Walt Marley: We did, indeed, use the solar tables to calibrate both the search radars in azimuth and the height finders in elevation. Back then we did not have access to computers at the TCGp level capable of producing the solar data tables, so we obtained the necessary information from the squadron at Ent AFB. TAC and ADC had an agreement that provided for this level of support and coordination. The 507th TCGp was responsible for evaluating all the National Guard radars located east of the Mississippi River, and for performing siting for all contingency plans and exercises in that area and in the Middle East. It was a very interesting job and one that I felt well-qualified by my prior experience to fill.

Fifty-one years later. My wife and I met an old member and his wife of the 127 and later the 677 AC&W Squadron of Fort Williams, Maine at the Shades of Green hotel at Lake Buena Vista, Florida last week. We were station together at Fort Williams 1952-53. The 127 was an old Michigan Air National Guard that was called to active duty for two years in 1951. In 1953 the 127 converted back to Michigan guard. The 677 AC&W Squadron was organized. Walter and I was assigned to 677 in 1953. The 677 then later that year it was reassigned to Alpene, Michigan without personnel. I went to 766 AC&W at Caswall AFS, Limestone, Maine and Walter went to 4711 Defense Wing at Presque Isle AFB, Maine. We had not seen each other since then. After 51 years later it been long time. So don`t give up hope if you looking for old AC&W buddies. If you look hard enough you will find them. Thanks to the computer age.

For Walt Martley: I don`t know if I qualify as one you`d be interested in, but my experiences were varied enough I thought I`d mention them. As a newly-commissioned 2LT, when I was assigned at Mt. Hebo AFS, OR (689th ACW) in 1960, I was an overage (Radar Maintenance Officer position already filled) so my boss, a Captain, assigned this green 2LT to be in charge of the AN/FST-2 that had just been installed and was undergoing final testing. I attended the maintenance classes being conducted on site for the USAF troops by the Burroughs techreps, which I found very interesting. About a year later, work began on the new AN/FPS-24 FD radar and I was sent to Eufaula AFS, AL for training on that new equipment (Anti-jam operator class). Then, in 1962 I was selected to attend IBM classes in Kingston, NY to become a Computer Maintenance Officer on the AN/FSQ-7 SAGE computer and subsequent reassignment to Adair AFS, OR (POADS). This was the initial training of USAF troops to perform maintenance on the AN/FSQ-7, and the original concept was that the maintenance officers and senior NCOs were an integral part of the work force, since the more junior troops were only trained on 1/3 of the computer and the supervisors were the `glue` that allowed them to work together where those parts interfaced. Of course, this process quickly became less important as the maintenance force learned more about each other`s responsibilities and technical information. In 1964 I was sent for a year to Cartwright AS, Labrador (922nd ACW) as Radar Maintenance Officer; I was promoted to Captain while there. Following that assignment, I was sent to Program 437 at Vandenberg AFB, CA (10th ADS) and spent 9 months on Johnston Island as a Payload Control Officer. There followed 2 years to get a MSIE degree at USC, and a year and a half in Iran as a Radar Advisor to the IIAF. Upon return to the US in 1971, I was sent to Shaw AFB, SC (728th TCS) as the Radar Maintenance Officer on the AN/TPS-43. A year later, I was transferred to the 507th TCG headquarters on that base as the head of the Radar Evaluation/Siting office--I job I filled for 3 years. During that period I frequently conferred with the experts in the Radar Evaluation Squadron at Ent AFB, CO--principally for advice and Solar strobe tables. I was eventually RIFed for not making Major and enlisted at Scott AFB, IL as a SGT COBOL Computer programmer. That assignment lasted 2 years, during which my T/S clearance got reactivated, and I was sent to Ramstein AB, Germany to do programming for NATO and Hq, USAFE for my last 3 years. A varied and rewarding 20 year career, including quite a few areas you indicated some interest in. If you go to the 689th (Mt. Hebo) and Adair AFS pages you will find some documents I wrote about those experiences and some pictures, too.

For David Casteel. Your note mentions Solar strobe tables, reminding me of a procedure we used at Ramstein to establish azimuth orientation of LRRs. We opened the receiver to capture solar noise as the antenna rotated, then determined center azimuth from a scatter diagram of the noise plot. The 412L setup made it simple and accurate. You did indeed have a varied career!

What a great site! Brought back loads of memories. I was in SAGE Height and DOTE at 20th for almost four years. DOTE was where the testing came from-spent many a night up all night printing tests out an the ancient `DLO`. From there to ground TACS, 104th FACP, where we had MPS-11, we thought we were really high tech when got the 43E. Spent many years, surv, wpns, on the old 35`s and yea I remember the mapper, too. I used to have to design and order the plates from DMA. There were not too many females in those days. In Claytons photo of the NCO Barracks at Ft Lee, I lived in the barrack to the left, my window is the one just to the side of the gazebo. During those days I never dreamed that I would be a `lifer`, 32 years now. Thanks for the memories! The link for Fritz Newsom was not deliverable-he was my old supervisor, if anyone knows how to contact6t him let me know. By the way I am at Keesler now-waling distance to the WAF squadron and schoolhouse.

Why did we do it? By Jack R. Kerr MSgt USAF Retired Did we do it because of threat of the draft? Maybe some of us! Did we do it for the money? Wasn’t a whole lot of it! Did we do it because we were heroes? Some did pay the price! Did we do it for the education? We did get that ! Did we do it for the fun of it? We did seem to enjoy it! Did we do it to wear the uniform? We did look good in it! Did we do it for fame? Not many of us got it! Did we do it for Mom? Maybe! Did we do it for baseball? I never liked the game! Did we do it for apple pie? No, but we sure like it! Did we do it for Chevrolet? No and not Dodge or Ford either! Did we do it for our comrades? There were some I would have died for! Did we do it for our family? I would still die for them! Did we do it for our country? Not for the soil, maybe the ideals! Did we do it because we were patriots? We were all devoted to something! Did we do it to man the ramparts of freedom? That was done at Concord and Lexington too! Did we do it for God? After our last sortie, only eternity may tell why we did it!

From the online “Writer’s Almanac”: Today is Veterans Day, honoring Americans who have served their country in the armed forces. November 11 was originally called Armistice Day because it was on this day in 1918 that the First World War came to an end. The armistice was signed at 11:00 AM, on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of the year. After four years of brutal trench fighting, nine million soldiers had died and 21 million were wounded. It was called `The War to End All Wars,` because it was the bloodiest war in history up to that point, and it made many people so sick of war that they hoped no war would ever break out again. Many intellectuals and artists were disillusioned by the war and thought it had been meaningless. But President Woodrow Wilson believed that the United States` participation in World War I was a great victory for idealism. He said, `The Americans who went to Europe to die are a unique breed. Never before have men crossed the seas to a foreign land to fight for a cause which they did not pretend was peculiarly their own, which they knew was the cause of humanity and mankind. These Americans gave the greatest of all gifts, the gift of life and the gift of spirit.` ... I was interested in astronomy and radiating bodies in high school physics classes. I learned the constellations and watched the Echo satellites. The Vietnam war went on from when I was in elementary school through high school. There was a draft in 1971 when I graduated at age 17. I actually enlisted before I graduated under a program, “delayed enlistment,” and my parents had to sign for me. I think this may still exist. A brother told me to when taking the career tests to do bad at everything except what I wanted, electronics, so I did. I deliberately answered incorrectly the other questions. Thus I was “guaranteed” electronics and arrived at Keesler. I was informed that I was to be an AC&W technician.

In talking with a friend, I mentioned the AN/TPS-44 had four switchable ranges. I think. My memory may be faulty. But at the 622 TCF in Germany we used it on the long-range only. I think the idea was it could be used in shortest range, which I think was 40 miles, as an airfield radar. My friend asked if ranges could be switched while radiating? I said I didn’t think so. He asked if any other radars were so gifted? I said not to my knowledge, but I didn’t think so. I think Teledyne made the 44. For some reason the 44 school I attended in 1973 was at McClellan AFB. My friend asked if Teledyne was still around and making radars? I said I don’t know. All this was a long time ago, but perhaps the Radomes community members (I hope readers will join) know more than I.

To the best of my memory the TPS-44 changed PRts when the range on the maintenance monitor in the trailer was changed. I do not believe that you had to shut the transmitter off since it was the trigger that changed. I do not know of any other radar that had this capability.

New life for housing at the former Watertown AFS, NY. An additional Brigade for the 10th Mountain Division, Ft Drum, NY, may lead the Army to refurbish AF military housing formerly used by the 655th Radar Squadron. Ft Drum is about 14 miles away from the old radar site housing area. The 27 houses now belong to the NY State Department of Correctional Services and are unoccupied. The idea is to bridge the gap between a current housing shortage in the area and future home construction. How the housing will be reburbished and who will own is still being decided.

Served in 615 AC&W, Neubreuke W. Germany from June 1971 to fall 73, Computer operator with SPATS (Systems programing and testing site). We maintained and developed the software to keep it all running. Had a lot of good times there in spite of what was happening at home then. I didn`t keep much track of old freinds there so if any see this give me a hollor. It`s been a long time.
