A while back, I purchased two Tarawa puzzles. I gave one away in a contest, and I kept the other one. Yesterday, I decided to put the puzzle together. Here is how it looks. The resolution is very nice. Click image for larger version - Name: image.jpeg, Views: 22, Size: 328.56 KB

Very nice!!!  Funny, I saw that picture this morning.  One of my co-workers didn't believe that the LHA-1 Class ships had an RPLA (Rotating Log Periodic Antenna) on the top of the Aft mast for HF communications.  So I searched the Internet and found a few pictures from the early 80's that showed the antenna.  For those of you not familiar with an RLPA, it looked like a giant TV antenna.  We pointed it at the COMMSTA we were working with and it provided the best and strongest signal so we could send and receive our message traffic.
