PLAYBOY Control and
Reporting Post (CRP)
Detachment 8, 619th TCS
Ca Mau, RVN
Playboy Control was activated on August 10, 1965
and remained operational until May 15, 1968. Located deep in the delta region on
the southern tip of South Vietnam and well inside Viet Cong territory, Playboy was blasted off the air by
a mortar attack during the Tet Offensive. The decision was made to deactivate the
site rather than replace it because of the installation of other radars with increased
range located in more secure areas.
Don't have any pictures as of yet.
