This blog has been idle for way too long now. I spent a lot of the summer of 2019 traveling and working another projects and totally ignored this blog. One of the things I was working on was a presentation for the Symposium on Cryptologic History sponsored by the NSA’s Center for Cryptologic History. The presentation was delivered on the 18th of October.
My symposium presentation was about the role played by the 1033-Class (Claud Jones Class) DE’s in collection of telemetry from Soviet missile tests in the North Pacific. The DE’s had been upgraded with telemetry collection antennas, receivers and recorders. I was a division officer for a number of these missions between 1972 and 1974.
