Just got a call from H Phillips who said he spent 30 years in AD. Great to hear from any scope dope. I was at the following.

All above between 1954 and 1958. Any one from those squadrons send me an email.

See for the latest on saving the old AN/FPS-24 radar tower at the former Almaden AFS atop Mt. Umunhum. The rest of this former AF Station has been razed (or is soon to be razed), but it now looks like there's a good chance the -24 tower itself will be spared. Stay tuned.

Hey, Vance. I, too, worked on Radars all through my working life. Mostly, if not all, on marine radar. Brand names were RCA, Sperry, Raytheon, Decca and a couple whose name I can't remember. First time I worked on one, I asked my super where it was. He pointed at some little cabinet, but I said no, the radar. Long story short, it was the radar (Sperry if I remember correctly). The FPS20's modulator tube was larger than this entire radar: except the sail of course.

I hope in this museum you also remember my brother Airman William K. Crouch who died in the terrible tragedy at Middleton Island AFB on Feb 22,1958 along with Travis Robt.Downing, Frank Slaughter and James Rawlson. They were caught in a tidal wave on the shore of the island and all perished.
