WA8UNS Thomas Q Kimball of Ridgefield,Connecticut wanted to share his experience at the Sandy Hook 5K for 2015 

People been asking about how my achilles has held up since my first 5km walk yesterday Sandy Hook 5K since my surgery last July. A little sore and the achilles feels tight due to the fact first time doing it and will always have a permanent stitch (s) in my achilles . "But happy to have finished it and have cross the finish line. Even though might have been last I was able to do it




Volunteering Friday the 27th March at the Reed Intermediate School,




And then taking part in the Sandy Hook 5K 2015 on Saturday 28th

As tears to my eyes as I was just sent the following picture from Katie with the Sandy Hook 5K such a wonderful picture ( and thank you for the picture ) of me about to cross the finish line with newly made friends coming together to finish the journey of this years Sandy Hook 5K as the pain/soreness today was worth every step as such a great cause. My first since my achilles operation last July. Rain nor snow will stop us !

As this would be the last time that two great Wolfpit Running Club members would co-direct this race Rick Favier and John Dugdale. My first Pamby Ridgefield Half Marathon dates back all the way to 1989. I did miss a few years in-between 1989-2016. This also would be my first half marathon since I had torn my achilles in 2013 in training for the 2013 Marine Corps Marathon. Finally after seeing a different doctor I had surgery on my right achilles July 2014. Since my surgery in which there is one or two permanent stitches. So since I couldn’t race 2013-2014-2015 I was still able to volunteer for the race. My first Marathon dates back to 1986. Marathon de Paris International Marathon de Paris 1986 with the Proselec Delacquis Demenagements ClamartFrance Running Club which I think was apart of Etudes et Productions Schlumberger 92140 Clamart France since my father Christopher Kimball was transferred  there with the family and I 1984 through 1986 from Schlumberger-Doll Research SDR Ridgefield, Connecticut. I have a handful of marathons and half marathon, bike races, triathlons, Ironman distance triathlons to Ultra-Marathons under my belt. I do not bike race and or do triathlons as I could not keep up with the ever raising cost of a race bike and or triathlon bike. As everything even the cost to race has gone up. A lot different then when I had used to do it mid 1980’s to about the mid 1990’s

My father had meet up with some of the runners of the Wolfpit Running Club when my father had taken a job with Schlumberger-Doll Research SDR Ridgefield, Connecticut back in 1979. 

We had moved to Paris, France as Schlumberger-Doll Research SDR Ridgefield, Connecticut had transferred  my father to Etudes ET Productions Schlumberger 26, Rue De La Cavee-B.P. 202 92140 Clamart, France during the time period of 1984 through 1986.

My father was in Signal Officer Basic Course, Ft Gordon June through August 1969 but came back to Ann Arbor, Michigan to see my birth July 4th 1969. Wish I could  see a class picture photo from the Signal Officer Basic Course, Ft Gordon June through August 1969 

I became interested in areas of subjects that where related to my growing up with my father's military past and also Amateur Radio Ham Radio as I was born in  July 1969 at the The University of Michigan Hospital  Ann Arbor, Michigan. So I was around for his Army two-year active duty which included US Army Signal Corps Officer with the US Army Security Agency Support Group out of Ft Meade, Md. We had a TDY at Ft Hood, TX December 1969 through May 1970 for MASSTER US Mobile Army Sensor System Test Evaluation and Review SurveillanceTarget Acquisition and Night Observation STANO As it reads from the website masster - 1969-1976 - OTC History

May 1970-71 as a Cryptanalysis . After that we moved to Miami, Fla for the ONR Office Of Naval Research 71-79. The work for ONR Office of Naval Research took my father to US Naval Facility NAVFAC Eleuthera and NAVFAC Bermuda.

Abstract : An experimental study of techniques for submarine to submarine communication was conducted. Based on the results of the experimental program, a practical submarine to submarine communication system is proposed. A particular implementation (M7) is suggested as a basis for future work.




An experiment study of coherent, matched filter techniques for  submarine-to-submarine communication was conducted, matched filter techniques offer three advantages over existing systems. First, coherent integration allows useful system operation at signal-to-noise ratios significantly below 0 db. Incoherent systems experience a threshold at a 0 db signal-to-noise ratio, which causes system performance to deteriorate rapidly. Second, filtering of the received information symbol with a filter matched to the received symbol waveform reduces the effects of both noise and multipath. Finally, these techniques are compatible with a wideband, randomized transmission format, which reduces the detectability of the signal by unintended receivers. The research program was conducted in two stages. The first stage evaluated communication system performance over 7- and 42- nmi fixed-site ranges. Over 4,000 hours of experimental data were obtained and analyzed to ensure the statistical significance of the measurements. Results from these data showed that reliable communication could be obtained with signal-to-noise ratios below 0 db. A typical experimental system (M6B) transmitted 0.625 bit/sec in a 100-hz band centered on 420 hz. Over a 42-nmi patch this system yielded a bit error probability of 0.01 at an input signal-to-noise ratio of -9 db. Such performance is within 6 db of that obtainable with the optimum receiver operating though a linear time invariant channel with added white Gaussian noise. To determine the applicability of the fixed-site results to the submarine-to-submarine communication problem the second stage of the program investigated the space-time stability of the acoustic medium with a towed source. An experiment was conducted in the deep ocean off Eleuthera, B.I at ranges from 0 to 400 nmi. This experiment indicated only a 10 percent decorrelation  in the channel from one 30-sec interval to the next. Consequently the coherent, matched filter techniques evaluated over the fixed-site ranges are applicable to practical problems involving moving platforms. Based on the results of the experimental program development of a practical submarine-to-submarine communication system using coherent matched filter techniques is proposed. A particular implementation (M7) incorporating a randomized burst-type transmission for detection resistance is suggested as a basis for future work. 

Finally after so many years of waiting for a National Security Agency NSA FOIA request to be approve  today April 5th 2014, I get to see my fathers paper in the NSA Technical Journal Article 1966 on 
C.V. Kimball A Text Recognition Procedure for Cryptanalysis.  https://www.nsa.gov/news-features/declassified-documents/tech-journals/assets/files/text-recognition.pdf As student University of Michigan.  Paper looks like to was viewed at the International Symposium in Information Theory at UCLA 31 January-2 February 1966 mentions Dr. B.C. Getchell, P1 My research on google mentions  Dr. B.C. Getchell  Butler University



If you look at last page of C.V. Kimball A Text Recognition Procedure for Cryptanalysis.  
Looking at the page of references. You see C.V. Kimball
A RecognitionProcedure for Natural-Language Text with Application to Cryptography,
Unpublished thesis University of Michigan 1965. And Communication Theory of Secrecy Systems is a paper published in 1949 by Claude Shannon

And also Theory of signal detectability : composite deferred decision theory 1965 in which my father contribute to by The computer programs were written by Mr. Kimball incorporated several special techniques in the computations due to the complicated functions that
arose in the analysis. The programs represent a great amount of very good work. Appendix C is due to Mr. Kimball. As you interest is your his first son and also that a lot of this has to due in which we use communications in today’s world.

I am proud of my father’s work for Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) Office Of Naval Research ONR and US Army Signal Corps Officer with the US Army Security Agency Support Group The National Security Agency NSA as I was personal around for this from 1969-1979.  As Amateur Radio Ham Radio was in the family 60's-70's (WN8QGF 1965-1966)WA8UNS (1966-1971) -WB4WZR (1971 until recently changed) And my mother was WN8QGE 1965-1966. As with this my Amateur Radio Ham Radio FCC call sign is WA8UNS





I grew up with Drake Amateur Radio Equipment, R. L. Drake Company manufacturer of electronic communications and also KDK 2 meter FM transceiver mobile in the 1970's My father also used a  Vibroplex Bug.,

As WA8UNS was my father's call sign in which changed in 1971 with a 4 call. The Drake Amateur Radio Equipment was sold before we moved to Paris, France in 1984. From 1979-1984 I would be able to build some small kits from Heathkit like a Code Oscillator HD-1416 Morse Heathkit Brand, Heath Co.; Benton Harbor MI and a few others.

I am also a Army and Navy Brat as my father was a US Army Signal Corps Officer with the US Army Security Agency Support Group out of Ft Meade, Md. We had a TDY at Ft Hood, TX  December 1969 through May 1970 for MASSTER US Army Project Mobile Army Sensor System Test Evaluation and Review Surveillance, Target Acquisition and Night Observation STANO.  On October 17, 1969, Project MASSTER moved to Building 91025 at the newly designated West Fort Hood, formerly "Killeen Base.”

I believe after some research that Colonel Sammy J. Cannon, SigC was one of my father’s bosses at US Army Project Mobile Army Sensor System Test Evaluation and Review Surveillance, Target Acquisition and Night Observation STANO

Major General John K. Singlaub was the chief of staff, Project MASSTER US Mobile Army Sensor System Test Evaluation and Review Surveillance, Fort Hood, Texas, Oct 69 - Jun 71. 


Major General John K. Singlaub chief of staff, Project MASSTER, Fort Hood,



Many thanks to Major General John K. Singlaub for having sent this autographed picture to me. It really means a lot to me. As I was at home while my father was working under you there at US Army Project MASSTER US Army Project Mobile Army Sensor System Test Evaluation And Review STANO Surveillance, Target Acquisition and Night Observation. I believe my father was with the Communications/Navigation Branch As he was a US Army Signal Corps Officer with the US Army Security Agency Support Group
December 1969 through May 1970 apart of military history to me. Wish I could meet you in person one day and shake your hand. Thank You for your service. Major General John K. Singlaub Distinguished Member of the Special Forces Regiment Major General Singlaub (U.S. Army, Ret.), who served in the OSS and was a founding member of the CIA, and whose career spanned 1943-78.


I had one day in the early 1990's like 1990 found this book on Major General John Kirk Singlaub Major General John Kirk Singlaub Hazardous Duty An American Soldier In The Twentieth Century  I look in it at the index and photos and came across Project MASSTER. So it became an intresting read to me. 


As my interest in my father’s military past grew as I was around for most of it July 1969-1979 10 years I wanted so research why his first activity duty TDY at Ft Hood, TX  December 1969 through May 1970 for MASSTER US Mobile Army Sensor System Test Evaluation and Review SurveillanceTarget Acquisition and Night Observation STANO. In which Major General John Singlaub was the chief of staff, Project MASSTER, Fort Hood, Texas, Oct 69 - Jun 71. ? As my father prior to this was doing mostly for the Office Of Naval Research ONR Cooley Electronics Laboratory Department of Electrical Engineering The University of Michigan Ann Arbor, Michigan. So a few years of researching came up with US Army Security Agency Support Group had a presence there but also maybe the part of SurveillanceTarget Acquisition and Night Observation STANO. Had some involvement with Operation Igloo White Sensors and Weapons which has mentioned U.S. Navy's Project Jezebel  replacing the hydrophones with microphones. But all is just a research theory for me. A book that caught my interest is Wiring Vietnam: The Electronic Wall - Anthony J. Tambini, Wiring Vietnam The Electronic Wall.pdf - Higher Intellect | Conte

Then we went back to Ft Meade for the National Security Agency NSA  May 1970-71 as a Cryptanalysis

I did not know any of my father's work from 1969-1979.  And really didn't learn anything of it until mid to late 1980's.  But did find his old Vietnam Era OG-107 Uniforms in which I had found in box's and would wear the shirts when hiking.
