It’s a new year and time for another MCVRC Spring Swap Meet!  It seems we either have an abundance of buyers or sellers, but we would like to have both.  Our increased advertisements and postings have driven more interest from the public, so now we’re reaching out to our members and sellers in the area to dust of those duplicates and raid the radio storage you have, and come on down and set up a selling table.  Who knows, you may just make a trade for that missing item in your collection!  There’s always something for everyone, and anything goes…  radios, phonographs, tubes, parts, microphones, test equipment, transmitters, military stuff; even phones and fans!  So come join us on the 15th!
For the buyers, we have a couple sellers who have recently bought out radio collections, and they are promising to bring them in.  Many pieces have been restored and there are some tube lots as well.  Don’t miss out!
Additionally, the Club would like to thank member Tom Lewis for a donation of 50+ radios and items to the Club.  These items are being sold to raise funds for the club for newsletter and venue expenses.
Don’t forget our Radio Contest either.  The categories this time are as follows:
Category 1:  Crosley vs. Detrola – ANY radio or item produced by either one of these companies.
Category 2:  Tube Portables – ANY battery operated portable radio (may also be battery & AC)
Category 3:  OPEN Category – Anything goes, radio or phonograph related… use your imagination!
