Command, ET-A School
Treasure Island, CA.
|After the "pre-school
indoctrination" tour of duty as a "colonel of the urinal"
(OE Division) and mess
cook (Chiefs Mess) on the USS Estes, the date finally arrived for ETA School. 10
|I know the 40 week school was great and it became
the foundation for my whole
future in electronics and communications. Where else could a kid get the
experience on sophisticated hardware so young. The only thing that really
stayed with me was the times at the Ham Shack at Amateur Radio Station
K6NCG. Although most of the faces cannot bring up a name, it was a great
duty station during the time at school. It was a whole lot better than guarding
the barrick or one of the island shorelines on a cold rainy winter night.
These photos are just scans of things I had in the photo album. My Mom
saved everything, so there were a few to pick from. At that time my call
was K7LNQ. My current call is WM7W.
