Radio Intercept Operators

I found a really interesting paper written by SMSgt James M. Houle who was a SNCOA student in February of 1996. The title was “Essay on Morse Code Operators in the Air Force.” It gave some good explanations of what my Dad probably did early on in the USAFSS. I’ve included a link below to the file here on the website:

  3. I am looking for anyone that was stationed at Wasserkuppe mountain Germany in the 1950-60 time frame, this is extremely important as we have dedicated a monument to the Cold War veterans and need to find out if an English “Signals” unit was ever at that location…I cannot stress enough the importance of this inquiry which, hopefully, will get widest possible dissemination.

  6. Can’t really help you out there partner, but I was there from 60 – 61. My grand daughter who is a 1st Lt. in the Air Force was in Okie just a while back and visited the old site. She said it was a great place to go snorkeling or scuba diving……….but that nothing remained that would let her know our base was there. I had showed her some photos of the Point.
