Comment: Found you by accident! looking for bloodhound info.Worked on Bloodhound at West Raynham, Bawdsy and Wattasham. Your photo on the help does look like a type 87 the tube between the dishes is a tracking camera. Anyone seen an RTS2 bomb plotting radar around.It was my first radar at RAF Lindholme in 1973.

Comment: I nicely put together site, which brought back a host of pleasant memories. I served as a National Serviceman, in '58, 59. A year in Locking, and a year in N Germany (296 SU), as a rotors fitter, on T80 and T13 (Mk V). I still reckon that the RAF training course was the best training that I ever had. A wonderful sensation, standing at the end of the top antennae walkway, at night, watching the world go round.

Comment: Thanks for a great site Dick. I served in the South African Air Force - airborne radio nav and radar from 1969. Did service in the old Rhodesia, Namibia (South West Africa) and Angola during the border wars. Then in the armaments industry and on to the S.A. Weather Service for the past 18 yrs. Now more involved with weather radars. The notes bring back memories as I was trained on them. Now I am using them to train my staff as well.
