I spent the summer of 1980 at Indian Mountain AFS Top Camp working on a contract with Bureau of Land Management to provide radar weather observations of thunderstorms. At the time I was an enlisted weather observer in the ANG and did my weekend "training" at the bottom camp weather station giving relief to the personnel there on those days. I retired in 1996 after 23 years many as a weather officer at NORAD (including crew duty in the mountain) and US Space Force (AF Space Command then). That included several trips to Thule. Assessing Missile Warning and AC&W radar site performance degradations due to space and terrestrial weather phenomena was a primary responsibility and constantly briefed to the Command Post as well as mission centers (my office was collocated with the Missile Warning and Space Surveillance teams in the Mountain). After retirement I worked (and still do) for Raytheon. One my jobs was South Pole (yes Antarctica) communications engineer for 8 years which took me to the Pole. On looking through the library on day I came across the book 90 South by Paul Siple about the construction of South Pole station and the first winter over. Inside the cover was a stamp: Property 708th AC&W SQ Library, Indian Mountain AFS. How serendipitous. Somehow after the installation closed the book made it through a disposition system that took it from the AF to National Science Foundation to the South Pole. And I saw it. Amazing.

Sirs, I came upon your site "by accident" Perhaps you could help me with some info' about a radar site at Wasserkuppe in Germany. My wife Inge's first husband was based there just after the last war whilst serving with the RAF It was a small detachment under the commend of a flight Lieut Naylor Inge was a local girl aged 19, who married her husband during this time. Stan died a few years ago and Inge now aged almost 93 (next July) often talks about the base and the people she met there and the things that happened during that turbulent time. I hope that somebody out there can bring a little info to brighten her memories - Anyway I live in hope. My very Best Regards Bill Dodd (Ellesmere Port) UK
