Found in the attic of my dad, the "real" W3PYF, Clarence Snyder - a short piece of 8mm film of a Delaware Lehigh Amateur Radio Club Field Day from, I am guessing from the cars, 1950. I recognize my dad's 1950 Dodge as one of the "shacks." The heavy-set guy is the "real" W3OK; my father is the guy running around in the undershirt. I recognize Bill Werner and the faces of a few others. Hope you all enjoy seeing what ham radio was like in the war surplus era; you could buy a pair of "Command" sets for about $10 back then on "radio row" in NYC where the World Trade Center once stood (you could buy them for less at hamfests, if the original owner screwed them up).
