|Message||Hello fellow ROCKsters. I was there in "74". was aboard the USS Davidson outta Pearl before that. I honestly wasn't all that fond of Keflavik but I did have a good time there especially the "BEER JUGS' to Denmark, Norway, etc. I heard the base is long gone, I feel certain we will be back. I left the navy in 1982 after 10 years. after I left Iceland was on USS Saratoga, USS Independence, NAS Jax. I really enjoyed the navy, it ws just time to go, but I'd do it again in a heart beat. The one thing I took with me was my 1st class FCC license. Have been in broadcasting since 1972 and YES i do remember those Q and Z signals..morse code..reading tty tape. We all did a good thing while there..we should be proud of our service. I'm too old now so I guess I have to trust the young sailors to "carry on". We all will carry on. I especially remember the ROD and GUN club...with the taco's and the OMG sauce...it really was.|

|Message||Who remembers: KW-7 Orestes; KW-26 Romulus; KG-14 Creon; KW-37 Jason? R-1051, A/N WRT-2, URC-37, R-390? ZBM-2, QSL, QRU? Teletype keyboard, i.e., "Letters" and "Figures?" "Figures" "S" sounded a bell? BRPEs and TDs? How many of you can still "read" the holes in the 5-hole tape, and better yet, can you still roll a long tape up, figure-8 style, around your fingers? Remember any old routing indicators, i.e., RUDISAA, RUDONBA, RUMFSAA, etc? Anyone remember marching in President Nixon's first inauguration, 01/20/69 as part of the RM "A" School contingent from Bainbridge?|
