Iwo Jima Hams (Jul, 1946)

This picture is part of the clever QSL card of W7ELL/ Iwo Jima. The four-element rotary in the background is authentic and so is Lt. B. II. Thomas, W7ELL, the guy with the half-mast pants and the undersize helmet. Naturally the gang is very enthusiastic about the location, and during calls apply to it such tender appellations as “. . . the Volcano on the Rock of Despair,” and “the big ash heap of the Pacific.”
