Old Station Photos
These photos are from the original Science and Engineering location on the 8th floor. (The current W5YM shack is directly below this room on the 7th floor of SCEN.
The station included HF, VHF, Packet, RTTY, and satellite capabilities. The main radio equipment was a Kenwood TS430 and a Kenwood TS790.
When the Science and Engineering building underwent renovation circa 2002, W5YM was temporarily moved to quarters atop the Bell Engineering Center (BELL) until renovations were complete. A few snapshots of the Shack during this period can be seen here.
During the renovation of SCEN, the radios and other Shack equipment moved to the top floor of BELL. However, the towers and antennas remained atop SCEN, and were remotely controlled from the BELL location.
Anyone with photos of the W5YM Shack during this time period (or any other) is encouraged to share them with us so that we can include them here on the website.
Please send any photos to firstname.lastname@example.org or, better yet, share them on the w5ym-l listserv!
