UHF Through The Image Orthicon Tube:
The Galleries

In researching the History of UHF Television website, we ran across a lot of images. (And we mean a lot of images.) We found station logos, ID slides, and test patterns ... print advertising in local newspapers and in industry publications ... and photos of station buildings, studios, and equipment. We found many more images than we would ever use as illustrations for articles and we found images for stations which we don't know enough about to be able to write articles for.

Since we weren't about to just toss all those images aside, we've included these galleries, where all these images are made available for your viewing pleasure. And no end of the broadcast day sign off, either ... these are here 24/7.

The galleries are organized based on the quantity of what is available. If we located enough images for any specific station, that station has its own gallery, listed in the menu below in alphabetical order by call letters. Where we were able to find a station's logo or station identification slide but nothing else, we've put them in two galleries (one for call letters starting with "K" and one for call letters starting with "W"); we've done the same with miscellaneous station photos, newspaper ads, and newspaper clippings. On the "catch-all" gallery pages, the images appear in alphabetical order by call letters.

Since we don't believe in simulcasts, any images which were used to illustrate articles for a station are not duplicated here. (Besides, you were going to read the articles anyway, weren't you?)

The vast majority of newspaper-based images would not be here if it weren't for the diligent and thorough efforts of our researcher Maureen Carney, who found newspaper articles and ads which we would never have found just using Google search.

This section is still "under construction" (and will be for some time). We literally have thousands of images to continue sorting through, creating more galleries and adding new gallery pages. Please consider this section a "work in progress" and check back from time to time for new content, and in the meantime, feel free to access our folder of images directly.
