Comment: I was very interested in your site especially seeing some familiar faces on the entry photo. I was in the 219 Comms entry and joined the forever knocked Aprentice band. I would be interested in a reunion if there was to be one.
I notice Martin Hodgetts mentioned as well, I would be interested in contacting him as I havent seen him since I left Staxton Wold for Gatow, Berlin in 1979.
Great site, look forward to hearing from you.

Comment: I worked on Type 85 (RAF Staxton Wold) '71-'80. Excellent article on Type 85. 4 Txs were used in normal operation, but 2 feed into dummy loads. 1 went into even no. horns and the other into odd no. Superb piece of kit, if a little tempermental. Interesting story - piece of 6 foot w/g burnt out 1 night. RAF North Luffenham sent spare in a BL mini - open box to find a machete! Stock numbers were very similar!

Comment: Spent 20+ years (1949-1969)as radar maintenance technician in USAF ground radar. I'll start scanning your website as well as Gene's (RADOMES, INC.) from now on. Found your address in Gene's Guestbook, so had to key it in. Many thanks for all the effort you're putting in to this site ... it shows. Most enjoyable reading.
P.S. Is there any locator service for retired RAF enlisted personnel? Knew some fine RAF chaps while in Norway, and would enjoy re-establishing contact
