Got my first Assignment to Pine Tree Line Feb. 1956 to 642nd AC&W, Pepperell, NFLD for 7 months, then to 641st GooseBay, Labrador for 3 months and then to Cartwright two weeks waiting for a Helicopter to get to Fox Harbour, Labrador Gap Filler until Apr 57. Lived in contractor Camp at the Fox from Nov to Christmas. Moved up early because on of the civilian workers was washing a parka shell in an agitating Wash Machine. It is amazing we didn't blow up.

For Robert Campbell. I read your note of 7 Feb 12 about Mt Hebo AFS with great interest. The FPS-24 search radar was removed after the collapse of radome #3 in Feb 68. You were referring to the installation of the FPS-27 search radar (it came from Miles City). Do you have any photos or diagrams concerning the FPS-27 or modifications to what had been the 24 radar tower (inside or out)? Are you familiar with the radome that was installed for the FPS-27?

I was at Mt Hebo in Sep 10 at the reunion. Enjoyed my visit but could only think about what had been. In 1984 the site was demolished and returned to nature. At least the Forest Service did not allow piles of debris to remain or the skeletal remains of buildings.

It was an 80 foot tower. I Built the Clistron tube stand , tube room interlock doors, railings and a ton of brsckets all over the place.I really miss that place.
