US Naval Radio Station, Tarlac, Philippines jacket patch. Philippine made, probably in the 1970s. Station was active from 1970 to 1989. Anyone know what NPO stood for?

 

Thanks,

Jay

Naval Station Argentia Newfoundland Communications  tough to date this one but if I had to guess to I would say early 60's interesting history with the base at Argentia, WW2 to 1994 with several changes throughout the years, has and Air Base, Dry docks.  Enjoy

Naval Radio Transmitter Facility Annapolis, Maryland (NRTF NSS) 1918-1996 (BRAC)

 

From the USNA website - History of Naval Radio Transmitting Facility Annapolis


Naval Radio Transmitting Facility Annapolis, which commenced transmitting in 1918, was situated on Greenbury Point on land originally purchased by the U.S. Navy in 1909 and used as a naval air station from 1909 until 1917. The facility, which at its height boasted 19 radio towers and both High Frequency and Very Low Frequency transmitters, served as both a communications link between the U.S. and Europe, and between the Navy and the Atlantic Fleet, including the submarine fleet. Between 1958 and 1959, the facility became home to one of the east coast transmitters for the Navy's Communication Moon Relay project, which successfully used the Moon as a telecommunications satellite to relay radio signals to Hawaii. Naval Radio Transmitting Facility Annapolis closed in 1996 on the recommendation of the 1993 Base Realignment and Closure Commission. In 1999, 16 of the 19 radio towers were demolished, with the final three being retained for historic purposes and as a navigational landmark on the Chesapeake Bay.
