Plse contact wayne scarpaci at
From Tom Jaynes August 2005
I am looking for any photos of the 19th Air Defense Group, Highlands Army Air Defense Site (AADCP) form 1967 or 1968 and any photos from Headquarters, 38th Artillery Brigade (AD), Osan Air Base, Republic of South Korea from 1968 to 1969.

Technical considerations
I am assuming the transference of images will largely be by scanning them into a computer, and sending the file of the image as e-mail for use by the requestor. This way irreplacable images will not get lost. Also, copying color images at local shops is getting less painful.

Very adequate scanners with very convenient bundled software are so inexpensive now (often $50 or less) that most folks are not inconvenienced by the hardware expense nor bothered by software complexity.

Image files tend to get large (half a megabyte) and awkward to send/receive unless you take special care. For instance, I wanted to makes images on this web site small (quick down load). To accomplish this,

All images on this web site were scanned at 300 pixels to the inch,
Reduced in size with software to match the approximately 70 pixels/inch of the moniter,
Saved as .jpg files compressed with rather lossy compression (relatively low resolution)
to produce "small" files, about 50 K bytes.
If you want to print images with a printer,
few of us can see better than 300 pixels/inch.

You can send images as e-mail attachments. However, be aware that

All ISPs have size limits of incoming mail messages (often a little above a megabyte)
All ISPs have mailbox size limits (usually in the 1 to 10 megabyte range)
Many ISPs do not warn the sender if the e-mail was too long, and discarded your mail
Many ISPs do not warn the sender if the mail box was full, and discarded your mail

Life is frequently interesting :-)
