W5AC Shack Pictures

Inside the old shack

Here are a few pictures of the W5AC shack in the Memorial Student Center, circa 2000. Pictures provided by AG5U.

This is our VHF/UHF/Satellite side. We
have a Yaesu FT-726, Kenwood 2m All Mode,
Kenwood UHF mobile, Kenwood 6m and a
satellite receiver for NASA Select.
HF Side
This is the HF side. Equipment includes
Kenwood TS-940 and TS-930. We also
have an Icom 751.
Wall O' Cards
This is our "Wall O' Cards". We
actually have many more QSL cards
(drawers and drawers of
as-yet-unsorted cards).
Our RTTY Setup
And finally, this is our RTTY
machine :-) It is a Model 19. We
have a manual for it somewhere.
It is VERY, VERY loud. PK232 is
much quieter.

Outside the old shack
