http://www.loran-history.info/Johnston_Island/Johnston%20-%20OSC%20Msg%20221416Z%20Oct%2064.pdf states than an O-451/U oscillator was shipped to the Johnston Island LORAN station in 1967. We are getting closer...

I am the owner of O-451A/U serial number 11. I would appreciate any documentation that people uncover. Although the USCG property tag says Western Electric was the contractor, some have suggested the construction reminds them of General Radio practices...

Thanks, all.
