Been in computers for 35 years since I Got out.
Funny that the RM's are now IT's
Guess that's the game.
Oh how I miss being active duty and a radioman!

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||Did Great Lakes in Aug. 1980, RM School San Diego Spring 1981, Then stationed on the USS O'Bannon DD-987, Went to Great Lakes as a Teletype Repairman, ended up working with SPAWAR as a you know what! Then sent to the USS San Diego as a platform during DS. Then did a couple of Reserve tours for SPAWAR in the 90's...Did not like my first reserve tour when I found out that the RM rate had been tossed, luckily I had enough TIR and a spot in SPAWAR that I got to keep my rating. Loved the fact that the newbys had to address me as RM1.|
Loved working in the Shack. Flirting with the girls in Naples over the NAVMACS on the midwatch.
Stationed with a great group of Radioman over the years.
