High Range at Edward’s AFB

I was just reading some X-15 history regarding the tracking and communication requirements for the hypersonic aircraft/spacecraft. In late 1950s they had to learn to track and get telemetry thru three tracking stations. I assume Walt Williams took some of that knowledge from Edwards flight test to the Space Task Force.
