Comment: This is a pretty good and impressive web site. A lot of effort has been made to capture some of the details of the radar material. Part of my training as an L Tech AD was the type 80 (mainly the tx interlock line) back in 1979, then followed other assignments back on UKADG, such as West Drayton, RAF Wattisham (Bloodhounds Type 86 and 87) and RAF Staxton wald (Type 84 and 85 and the HF 200).

Comment: Thank you for including in your page Phil Mill's letter about George Burville. George was my precious brother and was visiting me in San Diego when he was taken from us on Christmas Eve 2000. He had, the last few days of his life, spent many long hours updating his page and answering emails so that he could take a small break over Christmas.

Comment: Excellent Web site. Please note the T85 was built by AEI. Marconi brought out AEI long after the T85 was built.(critics might argue if Marconi built the T85 we would still be waiting for it.)

Comment: Hi

Very interesting webpage. I am not a techie, but an ATCO........just thought I'd put in a mention for the good old Type 82.

Not only a Bloodhound Missile RADAR but a damned fine ATC one too, lasting well in to the Eighties before retirement.

Shame you don't have any pictures. (Watch this space! - Ed.)
