quote icon Quote of the month:
"Every day sees humanity more victorious in the struggle with space and time." -- Guglielmo Marconi

On Saturday, June 2, NJARC members attended a memorial service for Charles Blanding along with many of his friends and family.
A highlight of this 'celebration of his life' was a heartfelt (and funny!) tribute by his friend Allan Sniffen (of "Rewound Radio" fame)
recounting Charles' lifelong fascination with radio and some of his adventures - and misadventures - as a kid.
You can listen to it here.

The New Jersey Antique Radio Club usually meets on the second Friday of each month.
Meetings begin at 7:30 PM.
Meeting location:

NJARC meetings are held at one of two locations: Bowen Hall on the campus of Princeton University in Princeton NJ, and at InfoAge in Wall Township, NJ in Building 9032A (the room at the extreme other end of the same building that houses our Radio Technology Museum. Immediately to the left of the Marconi Hotel if you're looking at it from the street.)

Meeting Topic:

If you plan to "look in" on the meeting via our live webcast, note that we are no longer streaming on the UStream service.

As of July, 2018 we will be sending our live webcast out using a different service, most likely via YouTube. Check here for details on the day of the meeting. We'll try to have a simple link you can click on to get right to the webcast.

At our July meeting, we'll have not one, not two, but three topics for presentation:

Dave Sica will reprise his presentation originally given at this year's Early Television Convention on "Estate Planning for Radio Collectors." (Cleverly re-titled from the original "Estate Planning for Television Collectors!) The concepts of making sure that your stuff is well taken care of  after you are gone are simple, yet relatively few collectors prepare and as a result, often things go awry. Don't become one of the club's many "cleanout" stories! With a little thought and a little time, you can make sure that your job of being the caretaker of your stuff "for the next generation" goes well.

Dave will also review the club's online presence. We communicate to our membership - and to the world - through our website, our Facebook page, our YouTube video channel and perhaps most importantly through our email reflector. Do you know how to get the maximum benefit from each of these venues? You will after the July meeting!

And following up on his quick "teaser" report on the Early Television Convention from May, Dave will go into a little more detail regarding the activities that took place at the Convention (including the auction), the state of the hobby and the Early Television Foundation, new displays at the museum, and recent developments in the effort to establish a CRT rebuilding operation.

Can't get to the meeting? Join us on the web!
Most of our meetings are broadcast live on the web. Go to the home page of the club's website and click on the link for the "meeting video" at the top right of the page.

new Note that last month's meeting was the last that was webcast on UStream.TV - that service has been discontinued and we will be moving our webcast, most likely to YouTube. Details on "tuning in" will be posted here.

(The live webcast usually starts around 7:30 EST for the business meeting portion of the program. We then take a short break and the main program begins around 8:00 PM.)

The New Jersey Antique Radio Club is dedicated to the preservation of radio history. The club usually meets on the second Friday of each month. Check the meeting announcement each month for the location of that month's meeting and any deviation from the usual night. There is a small Radio Swap Meet before and after the meetings which start promptly at 7:30 PM. Every month there is a "Tech Talk" radio collecting presentation. Anyone interested in old radios is welcome to attend and join. Several times a year, the club sponsors a swapmeet featuring an antique radio flea market and auction.


Our thoughts and prayers continue to go out to the brave and the innocent
