Peter, what's the origin of "Homey"? Starting a few years ago, the airport at Groom Lake now appears on FAA charts as a private airfield coded KXTA with the name "Homey" or "Homey Airport". I wonder why the decision was made to add it to the list off FAA-coded airports. This would have involved a lot of bureacrat meetings between USAF and the FAA to go over runway lengths, field elevations, etc. They even give the details of runway lighting...
