60-year Keesler program ends

KEESLER AIR FORCE BASE, Miss. – A course that’s been taught for six decades at Keesler is ending and being merged with other career fields. The last radio communications operations class in the 336th Training Squadron graduates next week. Radio operators deploy radio transmitters, receivers and ancillary equipment for line-of-sight, air-to-ground and satellite communications in fixed and tactical environments. The training in the reconfigured career fields will continue to be done at Keesler. (Source: Keesler Air Force Base, 07/15/09)
