    Wow. Was teaching Nike Ajax computers when I re-enliseedt for HAWK in 1959. Spent 20 years with the system. Went from E-1 to E-7 to CWO3 when I retired in “79 w/23 years svc. Yes, I remember electron tubes, does anyone remember the TSQ-38?

    I was at c 2/62 from 72-75 . Any one else during that time. Great unit and served with great guys

    I worked on the AN/TSQ-38 from 1975 thru 1980, 3 yrs. in Germany and the rest of the time in Ft. Bliss. From 1980 -1983, I worked with the AN/TQS-73 system. I remember modifying the cards for the TSQ-36 with 2n2222 to replace the point contact transistors.
    Wish I had my old repair manuals for the 38. would love to flip thru them again.
