"Everyone has their pictures of the radars and the boat and I am no exception. In the picture below I lived in the first floor room next to the firewall. The ham radio shack was on the other side of the firewall and between my room and the mess hall. Part of my job was to climb up the FPS-3 tower on the catwalk at the base of the balloon and inspect the balloon materiel for weathering. It was a mesh steel catwalk in which I could see ALL the way to the ground. It was very frightening to me. Lots of pucker factor here.".....J.A.
