Haines Radio Station (HNS),
CAA Haines Radio Station where John Keith (who submitted this photo) resided with his father
who was assigned this duty station.
My dad, John Keith, was CAA/FAA
from about 1940-1967. We were stationed at
Gulkana, Juneau, Haines, Galena, and Yakataga, Alaska, Battle Mountain
(Nevada) Farmington (New Mexico) St. Thomas (Virgin Islands) Superior
(Montana) Bryce Canyon (Utah), and Santa Barbara (California).
When the FAA was formed, he
was called to DC to be one of the plank owners for the Administrator’s
communications unit (OA-10, as it was called then). That was his last
duty station from 1960-1967. I have a lot of great memories of all of
these out of the way places. We were stationed at Haines, AK in
the late 40s or early 50s.
