Thomas Russell Gentry — W5RG

This website is in memory of my grandfather, Thomas "Tom" Russell Gentry. He was one of the first Amateur Radio Operators, getting his license in the early 1920s, and actively broadcasting around the world until his death in 1979.

This site includes his collection of QSL cards from all of his contacts from around the world (a collection that exceeds 5,700 cards), along with a collection of pictures his fellow "hams" sent him of their "rigs", and the pictures he collected while with the Army Air Corps.

If you would like to use these images for any purpose, please contact me at
