Trying to figure out what the following Apollo Test Team Position acronyms mean: MREC, MCCE, and SREC.

Any help appreciated.

First Letter Codes (Location)

  1. General Areas (KSC/AFETR)

  6. Spacecraft Propulsion Test Area
  7. USB Station Or Mobile Stations
  8. Houston
  9. O&C Polarity & Integrated Area
  10. CD & SC Building
  11. O&C - Ace Station, Qlds, Comm. Sta., And QC Monitor Room (LM or SWS)
  12. Launcher (Less Umbilical Tower)

  15. Reserved
  16. Pad or PTCR Areas
  17. LM or SWS (Spacecraft and/or Vicinity)

  21. Umbilical Tower
  22. High Bay
  23. Crawler Transporter
  24. O&C Building Altitude Chamber

  26. Reserved
Second letter and/or number codes:
  1. S-IC Stage Oriented Positions
  2. S-II Stage Oriented Positions
  3. S-IB Stage Oriented Positions
  4. S-IVB Stage Oriented Positions
    U. I.U. Stage/IBM Oriented Positions
    L. Launch Vehicle Oriented Positions
    S. S/C Oriented Positions
Other letters as required to provide a second letter/number for the call sign. These letters/numbers need not represent any particular code. (The use of the letter "i" should be avoided where possible.)

Third and fourth letter and/or number codes:

The third and fourth letters/numbers have no special handbook codes but are required to complete the four (4) letter/number call sign.

All times are CT (US)
