Short document showing some communication from one DRV (Democratic Republic of Vietnam) naval vessel to another informing them to "turn on their equipment." Seems they were tracking a US vessel on a "Desoto mission." Desoto was the covername for a US Navy signals intelligence program along the Asiatic coastline in 1962.
