Don writes:  I was in the radio station adjacent to the DF station at Gunpost for about 6 months in 1956. I left there in April or May of '56 for home. I had spent '53,54,55 at the Wasserkuppe where I was in charge of the DF site. there was no radio station at Wasserkuppe apart from the vhf link back to Gunpost and the SCR 522 in the DF van. In Rothwesten I spent a lot of time with Bill Raneo and Ron Rando. who I have recently reconnected with, thanks to your site. I was A/2C at the time so it must have been in late '53.
