When I hired on early in 1978, Alyeska had the old MPS telex machines. People had call signs unique to them. Rick had long hair when he was hired so his call sign was HO for Hippy One. I had long hair too and was given HT for Hippy Two. He was stationed at PS08 and I was at PS06. We met in Fairbanks and became friends. Our favorite hangout was the Midnight Mine. Then I transfered to PS03 and had to move to Anchorage. We lost track after that.
