Navy-Marine Corps MARS in Vietnam

Home Up



November Zero Echo Foxtrot Golf

Seabees - Camp Barnes, Dong Ha, RVN

Amateur call N0EFG is not assigned.

Had a ham ticket when I enlisted in the Seabees and rating was construction electrician.  I guess that info was on papers that went to the battalion for selection of the radio ops.  It was very rewarding to run phone patches for the guys to talk to their loved ones back home.  The day the ammo dump at Dong Ha was hit ran a patch from my foxhole on the in country net for the C.O. to DaNang as other communications were knocked out.

My Mars experience was all positive. Today I do volunteer work with SATERN: Salvation Army Team Emergency Radio Network
