Comment: I recently received a number of copies of a new White Alice brochure from the Corps of Engineers. It is a well done, fancy, slick publication that probably cost the taxpayers a few bucks apiece. If you would like a copy of it, E-mail me your mailing address and I'll stick a copy in the mail for you. No charge of course.

Comment: I wrote the Corps' WACS historical report. I collected WACS stations like some people collect bird species. I've seen maybe 20 and I love each one. The one at Cape Lisburne is especially fun to explore, as was the one at Pillar Mt.

Comment: It is nice to know the System is remembered. To say the system as well as the fantastic 49th is sorely missed is an understatement.

Comment: I was USAF enslisted at Indian Mtn in 1976 (not White Alice). White Alice was obviously still providing us our comm services at the time. Nice web page and nice memories. Only the people that had been stationed at these sites can appreciate them.

I was in FEC Class No. 8 in Anchorage and went to Big Mountain with Russell ('Scotty') C. Scott from Portland, Oregon. On the 4th of July 1960, I was part of a Northern Sector Interview Team for Federal Electric, standing outside the door of the Cape Lisbourne Tropo Site where the thermometer read exactly 32 degrees in a hot blazing sun *LOL*
