I complained that some of the scans were "eye-ball-busters",
but Greg patiently explained


Ed,

Yea, its an old document and the scan is lousy.
Im not so much thinking of putting it on an informational web page, 
but for my own information, I learned,

Interceptor sites in Cal were stationed at:

Hamilton AFB - San Rafael
Castle AFB - Merced
Fresno - ANG
Oxnard - Point Magu NAS
Ontario - ANG

And the latest and greatest jet was the F-106

Nike sites in the US:
