I loved being a radioman. 12 hour watches, busy friday nights, slow sunday days, paper tape footballs to get across the net, OCR readers jamming up, circuits to troubleshoot, movin' traffic with no "nondees", doing HJ's... Technical advancements were fast and furious for my entire career. Went from a teletype to a PC in about 10 years. When I finally landed orders to RIXT school it became obsolete a year later! I'm pretty sure that even now I could construct a perfect header with a complete FL2.
I was placed on the TDRL in 1999 and then retired in 2004. I really do miss it.
Hope all you radioman out there are doing well!

Message Graduated RM "A" School 1970. Stationed for 4 years at NAVCOMMSTA Londonderry, Northern Ireland. Got out in 1973, used the old GI Bill to get my Masters degree. Re-entered the service in 1976 and served over 2 years USS Mount Whitney out of Norfolk VA. Cross-rated to CTA and left the service in 1990 (did not retire)as a CTA1. Mostly remember my first tour as being the most memorable as far as location and the guys I worked with were superb.
