60s-70s AFSCs

New guy here. Noticed Hotmike's reply on Naylor. When I was assigned to the 437 Aerial Port Sq Combat Control Team at Charleston AFB in 69. There were two AFSCs from then up to about 79 I think, one was P304X4 ground radio maint and P272X0D Air Traffic Control (CCT qual). I've seen that 272X0B was GCA and was wondering the exact qual for 272X0A and C. I think the 273X0 AFSC started in 79 also radio maint was discontinued and personel were given the op to crosstrain to 273. I had been med disqualified in 79 but remained in support til 85.

Wow, what a flashback! I was both a 272 and 273, then the newfangled J1C2X when I retired. Have no idea on the older specifications. There was no 272 GCA shredout when I was ATC in the early 80's.

They phased out P304X4s in early 80s from what I remember. Tino was my boss and a P304X4 and he had to retrain at Keesler AFB for 273 ATC.

Good to see you posting here P304X4.

I think the last of our 304's came off status in '82, just that I believed the paper work that started it all was signed in '79.
