A.B.P.R. USENET PICTURE ARCHIVES
This site contains archives of binary postings to the alt.binaries.pictures.radio and alt.binaries.schematic.electronic usenet newsgroups. My web server is configured to automatically decode and make available on the web all binary postings made to these two groups. Vintage radio enthusiasts who do not have a reliable way to access usenet binaries can view and download them here instead. Almost anything related to antique radio can be posted here, including radio pictures, diagrams, schematics, swap meet photos, owner's manuals, and many other things.
I started actively archiving these files in May 2003, but I have also acquired some postings that are considerably older, some dating back several years. I have arranged them by the first letter of the filename, so all you need to do is click on a letter above and all available files beginning with that letter will show up as thumbnails, which can be expanded to a full-size image by clicking on the image.
The most recent files posted can be viewed by clicking on "ALL NEW FILES" above, but there will be no thumbnails, just filenames. Recently posted pictures can be viewed by clicking "NEW IMAGES" above.
The server can be rather slow at times, so if performance is sluggish, try again later.
