The North Atlantic Radio System
This web site is dedicated to the men (and a few women) who built and operated the North Atlantic Radio System.
Whenever a project of any nature spans a period of more than 30 years, employing hundreds of people on a mission with the potential to affect millions, it develops a life of its own.
A chain of five tropospheric scatter communications sites, stretching from Iceland to England, the NARS system was designed as part of an extension to the DEW Line and was built for the US Air Force by Western Electric (AT&T) in the early 1960s. Operated and maintained for most of its 31 years by ITT Federal Electric Corporation (now ITT Federal Services Corp.) or its subsidiaries, the "NARS System," as it was commonly known, became, in a small way, a subculture.

NARS People & Pictures
I'm still hoping some of y'all will send your own stuff for the NARS People & Pictures section. Check out my page here to see what I'm talking about. The idea is to send me what you've got and I'll put it on a web page. Anywhere from two to six or eight of your favorite pictures, along with brief remarks about each one. JPEG format (.jpg) is best, but I can handle most formats.
You can also include a chronology of your time on NARS, like I did, a short narrative of your NARS experience, or just about anything else you want. There are no real rules, and no reason that your page has to look exactly like mine, so use your imagination and send me what you've got.
The pictures don't all have to be of you, just some NARS pics that you like, but do try to send at least one picture with yourself identified.
