John watches as Chuck, N9DII does something.
John1 N1YV, messes with computer wiring under the watchful eyes of Tom, K9BTQ, and Chuck, N9DII.
Two Johns (W and 1) bask in the glow of John4's computer.
A visit to John wouldn't be complete without checking the angle of the element.
Nor would the visit be complete without a visit to John4's neighborhood watering hole and eatery, Crabby Bill's
John, Tom and John soak up Florida sun minus photographer, JohnW. Tom was out-Johned.
Lake Tohopekaliga (say that 3 times without spraining your tongue).
In the interest of alligator population control.
