ROAD TO OKUMA
1964

Page 2 of 2

We (Nav. Aids Technicians with the 1962nd Comm. Group) had to install and maintain a new transmitter at Okuma. We had to make many trips north and it seemed like almost every trip was in the rain. Most of the photos are taken from Shoiya and north where they were widening the road and paving it. As you can see in the first photos it was a long and interesting trip before we saw the light at the end of the tunnel. Our transmitter was just south of the Officers Rest Center at Okuma and right across the road from the Voice of America transmitting station. We had a nice beach front view but hard to enjoy in the rain. Of course when we left to return to Kadena it stopped raining. The photos on page 2 are the VOA transmitting site.
