My son tracked down the location of "Regan". We took a trip out there on Saturday. The bld`g is still there but modified. The owners put in a garage door & two windows (but the glass was broken out) in the equipment room. We didn`t get inside of the fence (big padlock) but I took some pictures which I will send you when developed.
There is a farm across the road so I stopped in. The lady of the house was home, Delores Alm (her husband passed away in 1988, name Willis), she was willing to answer my questions. 1st, she nows owns the property plus they originally owned it and sold it to the A.F. (I bet they turned a nice handsome profit knowing what the "Niobe" property sold for!). She said she use to cook some meals for the "troops". I asked what they paid for the property & what was left in the bld`g, also when it closed down. She couldn`t remember these items, said "her husband took care of those matters" !!!. Still she seemed like a nice person, maybe about my age or younger. I told her we would be back this summer & she said that would be just fine.

If you look closely, you can make out the mounts for the tower.
