Antique Wireless Association Combines Convention, New Museum Opening:

The 52nd Antique Wireless Association (AWA http://www.antiquewireless.org/index.html) World Convention http://www.antiquewireless.org/annual-convention.html August 20-24 in Rochester, New York, will have a dual theme -- the grand opening of the new AWA Museum (on August 20), and Heathkit history and equipment (the keynote speaker will be Dick Goslee, K2GI, the former manager of the Rochester Heathkit store).

The new AWA Museum is at 6925 Route 5 and 20, Bloomfield, New York. Held at the Rochester Institute of Technology Inn and Conference Center, the AWA convention promises "five day of total immersion in radio lore, artifacts and equipment." The annual event -- essentially the "Dayton" of the vintage radio collecting community -- includes a huge flea market, an expanded old equipment contest, forums and presentations, a banquet, and special event station W2AN.

Contact http://www.antiquewireless.org/annual-convention.html Roy Widermuth via the AWA Convention web page with questions or comments.
