They still have a runway there. Area has a target area for RTAF. Here is one link describing current (2013) status. This writer did not know about the targer area. Just had seen those targets.

I was transferred with the first group of 05H operators from the 8th RRFS on May 20, 1972 for the soul purpose of setting up the Vietnamese plain text mission at the 7th. I had an ETS date of 7/3/1971. So I wasn't there long. At the time I arrived I was carrying a lot of stuff that I could have taken home free from Nam, but would have had to get special orders from the 7th. I went to the first Sgt of I believe company C. I explained the situation to him. His told me that promotion lists from the 4/1/71 boards hadn't gotten there yet and if I made 5 I wouldn't need the orders. I laughed and told him there was a fat chance of that. I would have needed to max the board and I hadn't gotten a single military question correct. At the time of the board I didn't want the promotion. I was headed back to the states and E-4 didn't have extra duty state side, where E-5s had all kinds of extra duty, CQ, SDNCO, Sergeant of the Guard, etc. Well, a couple days later I arrived at my workstation in ops and the first shirt and CO had set up a little ceremony to pin my stripes on me. Evidently I had one really GAF promotion board.

there are several Facebook pages for the 7th RRFS (Ramasun Station). I've seen a number of Ramasun "reunions" throughout the States that are pretty much regional... Up here in Udon there are a few folks who worked at Ramasun who live in the area full time... PM me for additional info...
