What happened to the 1957th Communications Group?

I was stationed at Hickam AFB from Apr 68 until May 71 as a Radio Relay Equipment Repairman attached to the 1957th Comm Group. I have tried to look them up on the internet several times in the past few years and they seem to have been rolled into another unit. Can anyone shed some light on there whereabouts now, etc? Also, I believe that Radio Relay Equipment Repairman (304X0) due to the use of Satellites for long range communications. Is that true? Is there any AFCS comparable to RRER out there today? Thanks for your help.

Update:

Meant to say that I think my specialty is no longer due to Satellites. Sorry.

      Thanks, David. I am not a big Wikipedia guy so I guess I never ended up there in my searches. I am glad to see that the roots of the 1957th are still around. Good outfit!
