I was an Air Force weather equipment repairman during the 1960's and was schooled on the equipment in your list. I was also a technician on the USAF 433L equipment development project which produced the FPS 77. Unfortunately, I have no tech data from those years but would be happy to answer any questions you may have.

My Air Force Technical Orders on weather equipment has found a permanent home. The old 1975 books are now at the Air Force Weather Agency History Office at Offutt AFB, NE.
The T.O.'s and other books are availible online at http://www.lexingtonwx.com/techdata/
The schematics oversize pages were not scanned for the online library.
