    I was at RAF Chicksands 66-69. We told the blokes that the Flr/9 was a big plug that we would pull and sink the island when we left. Guess it didn't work.

    Wow! What a great thread, sure brings back memories! I reenlisted after my tour in Vietnam as ASA with PRD-1 and TRD 21's but joined the AFSS the second and worked the FLR-9 in San Vito (Brindisi) for 18 months, then RAF Chicksands 65-68 (No aircraft no runways). An incredible experience, especially trying to get up to frequency for the DDR spies to try and DF them - about 40% chance getting to get up to the correct frequency in time after the high speed burst from the DDR originating station! Being a short drive to London, everyone celebrated after the murderous mid shifts! I probably have met W4KIL, but was not a ham then. I had no problems with the Extra class code tests (smile).

    We used to tell the people in the "vil" that the Field Station was an under ground submarine base and that the subs came up the river from the S. China Sea then through a tunnel into the base. ;);)

    N1NA,
    I was on Charlie most of the time I was there. BUT I had nothing to do with radio. Worked in the computer room(AFSC 685). The guys on burn detail hated us when we brought bags full of punch cards to be incinerated. HI HI.
    Didn't become a ham until late 70's.

    Company K was the training command at NTTC Corry Field, Pensacola, FL. Company C, Marine Support Battalion, was the CT Marines at NSGD Guam. We ran two full watch sections of Marines in Building 200, out of a total of four watch sections. Manned 24/7/365...Working the Fleet Flash Net was a kick in the rear! ;-) 73, Todd KH2TJ CT Marine...
