An exceptional Pictorial History of the Fleet Radio Unit Pacific (FRUPAC) at Makalapa from the photograph album "Fleet Radio Unit Pacific, FRUPAC, July - August 1945. Photographs by Lt. Cdr. G. Chiles, USNR (ret.) and Lt. (jg) John L. Weber, USNR".

Naval communications intelligence in the Pacific Ocean Area (POA) was assigned to FRUPAC. The US Navy had a network of over 600 radio receivers covering the entire Pacific Ocean listening for Japanese radio transmission.

This book documents in detail via numerous photographs the men and women of FRUPAC at work and at play at Makalapa, their buildings and locations, their living conditions and the top secret equipment that they used.

This photo collection was classified and archived for many years and is published in its entirety here for for the first time. FRUPAC had strict NO photo policy during the war with these site photos only allowed at the end of the war. The collection should be of interest to researchers, FRUPAC veterans, and others interested in US naval communications during WWII.
