Grand Forks AFB to become HF-GCS alternate net control station

With a loud and clear signal, DAKOTA (Grand Forks AFB, ND) was audible in Europe on 8.992 and 11.175 MHz.

Feature - Grand Forks AFB communicators start two major base projects: "Currently, HFGCS is operated by communications technicians at Andrews Air Force Base, Md., just outside of Washington, D.C. Last year, Air Mobility Command selected Grand Forks AFB to take on responsibilities as the system's alternate control station.
The 'new mission will task us with the responsibility of supporting the airborne communications system used by the White House, the Joint Chiefs of Staff and other major commands around the globe,' said Lt. Col. Sam Bass, 319th Communication Squadron commander."
