Sunday, February 18, 2018, at 12 Noon

Pavek Museum
3517 Raleigh Avenue, St. Louis Park, Minnesota

It's time to start thinking about the big Sunday event in February... No, not the Super Bowl, the Radio Workshop hosted by the Northland Antique Radio Club and the Pavek Museum!

Steve Raymer is busy preparing the program, and having done this every year for longer than most of us can remember, we know it'll be another enjoyable and educational workshop. This is a free event for NARC members and Pavek Museum sponsors. 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. Hopefully the outside temperature will be up in the 50's like last year and it'll be another record-breaking Workshop swap - we'll see. It is 2 degrees below zero as I write this.

Also, 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 variety of topics, so everyone should find it interesting and entertaining.

Besides the technical presentations, Gary Ball will talk about variations in Zenith transistor radios, and Steve will repeat the talk that he gave at the Antique Radio Club of Illinois RadioFest meet several years ago about Joe Pavek and the Pavek Museum. This will be a tribute to Joe, born February 18, 1908, on what would have been his 110th birthday. Steve briefly showed the NARC board a little of this presentation, including early photographs that we hadn't seen before, and it is very interesting!

There will also be a Transistor Radio Show & Tell similar to what we've done the past couple years with phonographs and radios! Bring a transistor radio that you think is of special interest. Everyone enjoys seeing radios they haven't seen before, so let's show them and maybe we'll learn some things about them too.
