Comments: FOR HISTORICAL PURPOSES I'M SOLICITING INFO ON RANGE BASES RE STATION ABBREVIATION, NICK NAME (I ONLY KNOW "THE ROCK") CLUB NAME AND THE LOGO OF THE CLUB OR THE STATION. Enjoyed the work and many friendships formed there.
I WOULD ESPECIALLY LIKE TO HEAR OF THOSE STATIONS WHICH CLOSED EARLY; MAYAGUANA, DOMINICAN, EAST ISLAND, ST LUCIA AND FERNANDO. Would enjoy hearing from anyone that was there at that time to share memories and what they are doing now. Comments: Wor4ked for RCA from July 1956 to July 1960 at Mayaguez, then Turk and ended up at GBI. THOSE PALMETTOS ACROSS THE OLD VERY NARROW ROAD THERE WHERE WE USED TO SIGN-IN AND THEN SIT IN THE SHADE OF LONG GONE.
I would not trade my experiences and that career for anything, plus still happily married to the same wonderful love of my life. What a privilege to follow after the trail-blazers of the ER space program! Hope the future generations make you as proud of us as we are of you.
My best to al the "old range rats" that are still around. The dedication, creativity, adventures, and camaraderie of the pioneers that built the range. Comments: I lived on the Hatchet Bay plantation, Eleuthera in 1961 - 1962.
Many many stories I can tell and I have some photos... I believe I was the first/only woman on the softball team on Grand Turk, I lived in town rather than in barracks, I witnessed a tropical storm and could barely make it walking to work, helped a local master diver Paul (Hendrickson? I could go on, but I am currently planning a 2 or 3 month trip in early 2018 to go back and explore more. Comments: I was trying to find my (much) earlier entry to the RR book. I transferred (briefly) to the Radar Engineering Dept. Took leave of absence from FAA to join Redstone in Quincy, MA. utilizing Hydroacoustic Techniques to evaluate juvenile salmon passage at multiple Corps Dams. Discount food and drinks with name tag that you get when you sign in. Comments: Viewing the RR Sign in book, noticed I have an old email address. Thanks to Lee Barn for his email (RE: King Halikman) which got me back into interest in the RR history and Joe's great accomplishment with this site.My most memorable one was the loss of the Challenger. I am one of Buddy Emard's daughters, following (somewhat) in my father's footsteps.
