    Seeking location of USAF radar station call-signed "Port Call"

    William Stevenson Adventurer

      I am seeking to identify the location (map coordinates) of the USAF radar station whose call-sign was "Port Call" that in 1966 tracked arriving and departing flights from Cam Ranh Air Base. It appears likely that it was located somewhere in the Cam Ranh-to-Nha Trang vicinity of coastal Khan Hoa Province. A source document describes its topographical location as follows:  "Port Call is sited on a high hill with immediate terrain drop in all directions." Here are the relevant two 1972 aeronautical terrain maps that include the Cam Ranh Air Base to Nha Trang Air Base vicinity:
