Dex's Sound Files

Sounds from USS Newport News and other Sources

These MP3 Sound files are for the listening pleasure of my USS Newport News Shipmates and other friends. I used Master FX software
and my trusty old Akai X-1800SD tape recorder (see inserts in photo below) to digitize the tapes. Dexter Goad 2/7/00
Sound Man at work.

I have structured these files for use with streaming players, such as Windows Media Player.
Suggest you download the free version of Windows Media Player at link below.
