On another note.

In 1956 during the Suez Crisis we had our F-84Fs flying cover for the B-47s
out over the Caribbean. The F-84s were flying at 39,000ft. The F-84s had
ARC-33s. We could hear the radio traffic in the shop at Bergstom AFB in
Austin Tx.

> Ah  The old ARC 13   What memories   The B-36 had one with the BC 348
along with a ARC 27 (uhf).  Only  problem was the ARC 13 was in the rear
compartment and 13 ft to the ground.  A few were dropped trying to get them
out.   Sure did have good coverage from 40,000 ft.  Hi Hi   (wonder how may
will admit to using one on the ham bands in flight)
>   On the survey  not much of a surprise   Most AM'ers I know fit in that
catagory.  Most worked their way up through  electronic service in one way
or another.  Very interesting survey     Bill   K5PML
