WORKSHOP AND OUTDOOR MINI-SWAP MEET
Back by popular demand! For the 30th consecutive year, Steve Raymer is hosting another Radio Workshop, free for NARC members and Pavek Museum sponsors. Every year we get together to share what we know, or think we know, about anything related to restoring vintage radios and related items. Whether you work on your own radios or not, you'll enjoy the workshop!
Weather permitting, there will be trunk sales outside in the parking lot before the workshop, so bring whatever you want to sell and maybe you'll find something to buy too. If you don't find anything to buy outside, when the museum doors open at around 11 a.m., there will be surplus items marked for sale in the museum warehouse area. Snacks, soft drinks and coffee will be provided and it is a great time to browse around the museum and socialize with the other collectors. The workshop starts at 12 noon and includes talks on a wide variety of topics, so everyone should find it interesting and entertaining.

A few topics for this year are, briefly, and in no particular order, Bill Williams will talk about restoring a 1940s Pilot 3-inch television and Matt Hyman will talk about repairing printed material. Steve will show us how to measure amplifier distortion and is asking for everyone with a stand-alone amplifier to bring your amplifier along so he will have a variety of amps to measure and compare.
Also there will be a Radio Show & Tell similar to what we did last year with phonographs!
Bring a radio that you've never seen another of to the Radio Show & Tell. Everyone enjoys seeing radios they haven't seen before, so let's show them and maybe we'll learn some things about them too.
Please call Steve (952-926-8198) if you would like to talk or demonstrate something at the workshop.
