Uhring, USN, N0EFR , 8/68 -12/69
I was asked
by my division officer if I could build a MARS station, because I was an
amateur radio operator. I built and started
N0EFR and ran it for sixteen months August 68 to December 69.
I felt good
that I could give all the troops a way to put their minds at ease, with
MARSGRAMS & phone patches, while we were in this world of shit!
I did my
best to build antennas for Army MARS and Navy/Marine Corps MARS. Also
I repaired all Collins radio equipment that all MARS stations had in the
for remembering me.
After 32 years I thought everybody forgot me .
