A follow on to the earlier post (below). I have just finished reading Milt's "Cambridge Bay 1952-1952 (see Stations - Aeronautical). What a great article. Wouldn't it be great if we had an article like this one for each of the old DOT stations (from the RO viewpoint of course!). I had started one time doing just that for the JAWS stations and this has given me the motivation to look at those drafts again and see if I can complete and post them.

Milt Watts has posted a great piece on the Smith River Radio Range, circa 1950, under the heading "DOT Stations" Smith River.
Several of the names mentioned in his article come up later in the History and his description of life at a RR Station is right on.
Many thanks Milt.
