U.S.S. MISSOURI Needs Your Help

We have been in contact with the folks working on the restoration
of communications systems (radio, radar, sonar, intercom,
public address etc.) of the battleship U.S.S. MISSOURI
in Pearl Harbor.  You will surely understand the historic
significance of this great ship.

They wish to restore the comm systems to their WW-II condition.
They have little material from that era at this time
and complete records of the equipment installed then
are not available.  The first step toward the reconstruction
is knowledge of the equipment used and its installation.

Here's how you can help:
If you or anyone you know served on or has specific information
concerning the installation of radio, radar or other communications
systems of a WW-II United States battleship during 1940-1945,
ncluding those systems installed in aux. aircraft or aux. launches
associated with these ships, please send contact information to:

  arc5 at arc5.com

We will make contact with interested parties, compile the
information and forward it to the folks in charge of the
comms restoration so they may use it as they see fit.
