28 September 1966: Provision of Tripartite Intelligence Conference Network

It also appears some changes to the Tripartite Alerts circuits also took place. This memorandum outlines the provision of Tripartite conference network connecting JIC London, NIC/QIA/Washington and CIIB Ottawa. Once installed, the network was to be operated by the 705 Comms Squadron in Ottawa – not by 704 Squadron in Rockcliffe. This might suggest that Alerts were no longer integrated with the HYDRA system.
