W5FY 1932 Cuero, Texas

Operator: R.F. Hotz


The group photo was taken during the time he was deeply involved with Air Force MARS around the early-to-mid 1950s, and my Dad is the guy smoking a pipe.

 


His transmitter was a 47 xtal oscillator, 46 doubler, and 10s final with 800 volts on 7266 kc.
