I retired from the AF in 1986 as a Major. In my career I was involved in the developement and acquisition of several radar systems including NATO AWACS and COBRA JUDY. In 1972, I was the site activation officer as a young Captain at the FPS-49 site in Moorestown NJ involved in reactivating the FPS-49 and converting it to an SLBM detection site. For about three months I was the site commander until the ADC squadron arrived and command was assumed by ADC.

While assigned to Nellis AFB in 1977 - 1980, I was the proud owner (signed on a hand receipt as surplus to the Air Guard) of the last 4 TPS-40 heigth finder radars in the Air Force. We modified them and deployed them on the Nellis Range as simulators of foreign radars fro RED FLAG.

Signed up for the AFRMA and looking forward to a great success story. Although I am in FL now, I spend summers in northern NY near the old Watertown AFS. Plan to adjust travels between my homes to include the museum site in Ohio. Although I do not live close to the museum, I can do online research, and review or prepare document if that will help. Right now I am awaiting feedback from our team review of our book - "THE PEACEKEEPERS". This book when published will provide additional funds for the National Air Defense Radar Museum (NADRM), which is being built on the grounds of the Ohio Hi-Point Career Center, the former 664th AC&W/Radar Sqdn, Bellefontaine, Ohio.

Defective dummy load on FPS-64 search radar in the early 1960s. Dummy load was located in search radar tower above the desk. I made measurements with dosimeters, the readings were very high.

Some of us were sent to the medical facilities at K.I Sawyer.AFB for examination due to exposure to the RF radiation. No conclusive results were determined. However I was told by a doctor that future medical abnormalities could results such as cancer, tumors, etc.

Has anyone else here been exposed and if so have you had any problems??

Don't you mean Mc Connell AFB in Wichita, KS? I was raised in Wichita, but never stationed there. I watched it change from the city airport, to a SAC Base, across the street from Boeing Aircraft. They just rolled the B-47's across the street and onto the base. Pretty handy, ey?
