Did any here ever work on or around the AN/FSQ-32 back in the 60's? Chuck(G)? Just read an article about that piece of iron and am curious.

I did have a boss who spent time with SAGE, he mentioned that the rows of vacuum tubes was a great place to stash your lunch to keep it warm.

Was not the AN/FSQ-32 the largest and heaviest computer of the day and mostly TTL? I believe it was in NORAD's purview.
