That intense nuc training paid off for you, eh?
Yes it did. My main duties were as an Electrical Operator, including repair and maintenance. Plus, there was a lot of cross training as mechanical operator (steam cycle, heat exchangers,...), reactor operator (electronics), and radiological control (included water chemistry). All those translated very well to chillers and other hvac. So, do you miss those boomers? And I forget, is RM radio or radar? And I don't recall IT at all. What does that stand for?
