See http://www.mercurynews.com/scott-herhold/ci_21764133 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 Furino.....plus 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.
