How come nothing that's "TOP SECRET" is ever a secret??
Are we ATSers that damn good???
I worked at the HF transmitter site working on about 60 old vacuum tube driven 10KW and 40KW HF radio transmitters. They would fail occasionally and had to be repaired quickly so we could get back to transmitting to the ships or the mainland. The transmitters had not been very well maintained when I arrived and failed frequently, mostly because the operators (rate:Radiomen) were told to ignore problems that the technicians (rate:Electronics Technician) considered to minor to repair.
