Charlie Porter, ETN2 - CE Div - 66-69 - Submitted 1/2/07

Hi Richard, Imagine after all these years I just Googled USS ESTES out of curiosity, and there was more than I thought existed. Found the USS Estes Association thru a web link, and there you where. I'm sending some pix I scanned into my computer dating from about Jan '66 thru Oct '69. That was the time I was on the Estes. And then discharged out of the Navy in Oct. 69. Picked up a surplus R-390A/URR receiver several years ago and restored it to operating condition. We had dozens of them on the Estes. I use it in my vintage ham radio shack along with other boatanchor relics from the past. Navy doesn't have ETNs or radiomen any more. The technology has radically changed. I will stop here, as I could go on for hours. Enclosed enjoy the pictures from the Estes ET shop.
