We've found a problem with the display of vintage photos for a site from the thumbnail display that seems to only happen on the Microsoft Internet Explorer. I you get the situation where clicking on the thumbnail image does nothing, you can try using a different browser (Chrome or Firefox work OK). I'll keep chasing this, because the vast preponderance of browsers is the MSIE browser, which by the way, has never, ever adhered to W3 standards, always shooting for "standards" of its own.

There's been an error reported with the interactive Maps for the various radar sites. I've confirmed the error, and will be working on this to get it straightened out. This function uses Google Maps, and it looks like there's been a change in the software interface to the Google software.

I've gotten at least one error report for a Video of Texas Tower 2. That may take a while to get corrected. The video was stored with some very old software that might just not work any longer (RealPlayer of at least 10 years old). I'll see if I can do something about this, but please don't get in a hurry.

I'm getting quite a few error reports for the software that's displaying images, such as you might get when you click on a vintage photo thumbnail. However, all of these that are reported are working fine here. If you're having an error or issue with displaying images from the photo/thumbnails, would you send me an email describing just what you're getting (or not getting if that's the case) to

Thanks, I want to get this cleared up.

I am glad that a Museum has been established. A lot of heart and soul went into setting up, running and inspecting all of the RADAR sites. I am proud to have had a small part in that history. I was a Q-47/AN-GPA 124 technician at the 665th Calumet AFS, MI from 1982-1986. Then I served at the Southwest Air Defense Sector as a Computer technician from 86-89 and then as a Quality Control inspector for SWADS and as an Air Force inspector working with the FAA to inspect all of the SW RADAR sites from 89-93. Good times and outstanding people all around to include all of those FAA RADAR site technicians and Inspectors. I am proud to have served with all of them.

I've been getting a couple of error reports on the new software I've not been able to find.

The first report has to do with the "What's New" page. It works fine for me as far as I can tell.

The second report has to do with thumbnails of site Photographs. Likewise, this looks fine here.

If you've reported either of these two problems in the last couple of days, would you please email me with a little more info on the problems you're seeing. Email:

Seems all the photographs except recent have been modified with a JPG' extension. This is not a compatible format. I appreciate the updates, but would like to be able to see them.

Seems you have used JPG' as an extension for your JPG file portion on the Pictures page. Doesn't work.
