RF Cafe - AN/TPN-19 Landing Control Central - RF CafeMany thanks to those of you who have sent these photos to me for publication. I have received a lot of e-mail on them in the couple years that they have been on the Internet. If you know anyone in any of the Mobs, 1  through 5, please have them contact me and send photos. If you only have hard copies or negatives, I will be glad to scan them and send the original back to you.

A lot of the 5CCG guys were members of both the AN/MPN-14 shop and the AN/TPN-19 shop. Many have sent photos and experiences, so they have been added to this page as well. If you have ever wondered where radar troops work after leaving the Air Force, wonder no more: Judging by the mail I have been receiving, a huge number of them are either working for the FCC or are now civilian contractors working on overseas contracts.

Since many pictures have come in from TPN-19 installations, I have created this page dedicated to the TPN-19.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
