I guess I wasn't fast enough, in getting the files off of the KA5THB site, so I could post them up here on the new W5OMR site. C'est la vie! I've still got the pictures and it's just a matter of re-scanning them, and getting 'em back on here, again.
Finally I've gotten around to getting a scanner installed here, and who should I happen to see, when I get the first (of many) roll of film developed?
Pete Galindo, KI5SM is pictured here, sitting in front of his DX-100 and National Reciever.

and National Reciever.
Below is a picture of Pete's operating position.
Look who's rebuilding!
It will certainly be good to hear that big signal from
back on the air again!
The Flood of 1994 floated
everything down the creek for
John and Vicki.
They salvaged the business, and some Ham gear, but not much else!
We can (and SHOULD) thank John's XYL,
for the week vacation John recieved as a Fathers Day present.
Even Bill/WB5PKD wanted in on the act (grin)
John and Vicki own a Computer shop,
The Computer Fixer
there in Spring, TX
That's a push-pull pair of 250TH's, to eventually be modulated by some 813's, with the audio being driven with the WA5BXO Solid State Audio Driver circuitry.
Here's Otis/K5SWK at his original operating station, on Sylvania Road, in Houston, TX
Otis has been quite an inspiration to homebrewers all across the country. The entire rig is homebrewed! A single 833 in the final, modulated by a pair of 833's. Even the Exciter was homebrewed. Part of the K5SWK audio secret is the homebrewed speech-amp, that uses a pair of 6146's in the output section.
That little pink "Wallensach" reel-to-reel tape recorder has been used SEVERAL times, to fool other Hams into thinking they were talking to someone who wasn't even on the air ;-)
Here's Otis in current times. Same Rig, new QTH in Grangerland, TX (between New Caney and Cut-n-Shoot) and a New Paint job on the rig
Here's a look at Scotty/K5SPE out in Ozono, TX. Scotty ALWAYS puts in a whale of a signal here into San Antonio, with his pair of 833 final, and pair of 833 modulator!
also from Ozona, TX.
The picture shown is of Bob with John/WA5BXO gazing longingly over some of Bob's "Treasures"
Personally, I shall miss "Ozona Bob" and his commentary contained within the AM carriers, from Ozona, TX.
Here's what I call the "Texas Two Holer!" A pair of "John's" (smile):
Note the BC-610 on the right, behind W5MEU. Beside it, to the left, is yet another BC-610. John has been known to be involved in two QSO's at the same time, one on 160m, and the other on 40m. At the same time, he has had the DX-100 setup on 10m, scanning there for carriers.
(l to r) Otis/K5SWK, Jeff/N5ECP, John/WA5BXO, Yogi(Joe)/KC5MIP and John/W5MEU all at John/MEU's house
And yet some more AM'ers!
Here's ol' Joe/W5DFS sitting in front of his first "store-bought" rig - the Heathkit Twins.
An Apache and the complimenting Mohawk reciever.
Here's a look at the infamous "Titanic" in it's original form.
"Operating your AM Rig without a scope, is like
driving your car at night, without headlights!"
Don't forget to visit the AM folk in the NorthEast after you've seen all here!!

Soon to come!
Pictures of Steve/K5LTK, some more of John/WA5BXO, and others along with some audio clips of these and other FINE Ham Radio operators, here in the 5th call district!
Can you believe that there's already been
people here, lookin' at these pictures?
