I was stationed at NavRadSta Isabela from 1972 to 1974. I have been by the site a few times and on my last visit I see the barracks and the club have been torn down and there is now a USAF posted on the generator building. I was looking for some pictures and info on the site. In the message above I remember Mr Booth when RCA took it over from us in 1974.

I WOULD LIKE ANY INFO OR PICS OF THE SITE AT ISABELA DURING 1965 - 1975.

My fathjer was USN and stationed there in the 1960's then in 1974 he was hired back for RCA or Colins? He was ETCM Russell Booth.

Thank You.
