Hi Deb,
I talked to my cousin at Sublette this evening and he said it is still being used as a defense radar installation and that they had updated a lot of the radar systems about 3 or 4 years ago. He seems to think it was scaled back to a smaller installation sometime in the late 60's. I remember it being a sizeable base in the 1953-54 time span because my grparent s rented rooms to some of the airmen and wives.
I was 8 or 9 years old at that time and remember them having
scrambles to get back to base. It may have weather equipment also, but, they flew two F-14's thru Sublette about a month ago to test the radar.
Hope this helps,
Gary
