USAF 66-67 TUSLOG ??? Single Side Band Radio Operator.

Each day we drove off base to the radio shack out at the old Luftwaffe air field were C130s would land. It was a dirt road and in the winter an ocean of mud. We always stopped at the TROPO SCATTER radio building to pick up jugs of water for our shift. We worked in a small radio shack had an outhouse for sanitation. A Turk soldier guarded our shack. Once or twice Soviet aircraft buzzed our (SAC) station at mock speed. The Soviet pilots would skim over the Black Sea and then pop up on radar and buzz KAS. We use to say that in KAS we were closer to the enemy than people fighting in Vietnam.

I am now 70 and so many of the men who I served with may have already gone on or will be going on their last overseas tour. At least we were able to give our people about 30 more years of Liberty and Freedom but to what end? Back then who thought it would ever end like this.

When I left the AF, I attended college and got a engineering degree. I worked 35 years at Bell Labs in NJ. Like the US, Bell Labs is now gone with the Wind. I have heard a new Bell Labs was build in China.
l guess all the test equipment and secrets ended up there.

I found a book called DARK PROJECTS some time ago that actually described what we were doing at KAS and why all three branches of the military were there. Who would have known. KAS was tracking and intercepting Soviet ICBM test shots between their \"secret launch site\" North of Moscow all the way to the splash down out in the Pacific. Their testing would last a few weeks which explained why the base would be empty of troopers for a week or two.
