Served '69 and part of '70 in the comm center, receivers site and transmitters site at Roosevelt Roads.. Remember a Tech names Valdez a RM1 Stamps a YM3 Powell a YO3 Voyles and a RM2 Cline that could type 106 wpm on a 100 wpm teletype....and also a RMSN Young from Black Mountain
After completing Radioman "A" School in Bainbridge, MD, I arrived at Roosey Roads in April '70 and was assigned to the Communications Dept. Worked as base messenger for a while, then had assignments at both the Receiver and Transmitter sites in '71 and '72. Not sure if our paths crossed or not. Played 3rd base on the dept softball team.
I worked in the receiver site and transmitter site at Roosevelt Roads during 1962-1964. I also maintained the TACAN site which was at that time on an eastern point of the base. It was in the planning phase to move it to the airfield. Did they ever move it ?
Wanted to go back in later years but unfortunately never got to do that.
