    I was never “ship’s company” on a sub but, as an E.T. stationed at SUBASE Pearl in the 80s, I helped (support) on the AN/BRA-16 VLF receiver system. It had a floating wire and a “whip.” I never saw the football but they also had a ELF system (now decommissioned) which may have had a football. I was talking to one of the Warrant Officers at SUBASE Pearl (who had a Master’s Degree in Electrical Engineering (MsEE?) about the ELF system and he claimed that ELF was not radio but simply “induction.”
