Guess The Place On The Razorback

Here's a great photo sent to AIMM which shows a sailor hard at work aboard the 394. Can you guess the job and approximate year in which this submariner appears? Just click on "comments" to leave your thoughts. We very much appreciate all of those who have sent in this sort of artifact and other keepsakes as well.

It is indeed Radioman HITT in the radio room of the Razorback in the 60s. The radio room is the one area that the Turkish navy stripped since they still use the radio and crypto gear. Plans for the radio room include setting up a HAM radio station in order to communicate with other museum boats. Won't that be cool for the kids and the not so young kids too?
