   My late Uncle Charles Schwark who lived in Muncie,Indiana passed in the mid 1960's. I would like to know his callsign. I remember his Hallicrafters glowing on his radio shack. He was a radio and television repairman. Iwould appreciate any information. 73'S

Unfortunately, I only find a Wilbert Schwark, W9IHG  from Fond du Lac, WI. while searching the 9th call area from 1930s through the 1970s (scanned and searchable) callbooks.

Don't worry about NOT FINDING a call sign in the old call listings. I had three FCC assigned Call Signs in 1980. ONLY ONE of them ever made it into ANY call book. Can you find any of your uncle's received QSL's? I've got QSL's in desks, boxes, file cabinets and just about everywhere.

There is a Chuck Schwark listed as the Web Page administrator for the Antique Wireless Association

http://www.antiquewireless.org/otb/contact.htm

Quote from:  The AWA Journal - Staff and Contacts

Official Journal of the Antique Wireless Association, Inc.
Web Page Administrator   Chuck Schwark
Amateur Radio   Tim Walker, W1GIG

that might account for an old Hallicrafters glowing

there is also a webpage http://www.dealamerica.com/balinks.htm that has a link to: "CHUCK SCHWARK'S PAGE"
but the link-- http://members.aol.com/caschwark/index.htm -- is dead 

not sure if that is helpful or not... if it sounds like your uncle, you might contact that organization or perhaps W1GIG listed above...
