Cynthia's question: what missiles were located at Manchester...Nike Ajax. Manchester was one of our sister battery's when stationed at B-Battery, Portland, CT. Later was transferred to 7th Army Europe where I was employed at a Nike Hercules site in Zwiebrucken, WG. Our missiles were armed with M-31 Nuclear warheads. Kindly advise if anyone knows how to reply directly to a parties entry.

I was on active duty in Portland, CT serving at a Nike Ajax site B-Battery, 2nd Missile Battalion, 94th Artillery from late 1958 to 1961 as a target tracking radar operator. The battery was located 9 miles at the highest point in the mountainous region of Portland/Middletown.

I lived in the Army housing area there on Eels Hill (sp) for several years, from 7th grade thru Junior year at Milford High School. Learned a lot about amateur radio from many "hams" that used the generator room as their operating position. I have visited the site over the past years, and am glad to see it is getting the attention it deserves! Not only as a radar site, but as a comm station for southern Conn. 73 de KB1LN Bob
