Radio Repair Extravaganza
July 27 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pmFree
Dust off those old radios and bring them down to NMIH for a fun day of radio fandom!
Skilled technicians from the Delaware Valley Historic Radio Club (DVHRC) will be on hand to help troubleshoot, diagnose and potentially repair antique radios brought in by community members. Identification of models, as well as tips for safe operation and best practices will be discussed. In cases where repairs are beyond what can be done on-site, recommendations & repair cost estimates can be made. Free value appraisals will be given as well. This event is free with regular museum admission.
The Delaware Valley Historic Radio Club, founded in 1991, is an active club dedicated to the collection and preservation of antique radios, televisions, electronic test equipment and related items.
This event is part of NMIH’s “Don’t Touch That Dial: 100 Years of Radio” exhibit. Radio employs the magic of sound by harnessing the electromagnetic radiation around us. The impact of radio is immeasurable. It has the power to elect political figures into office, it influences consumers to purchase certain products, it shapes new ideas and spreads news to mainstream America and it brings pleasure to audiences all over the world. “Don’t Touch That Dial: 100 Years of Radio” features over one hundred historic radios, components and ephemera. Visitors to this interactive exhibit can listen to early broadcasts, see an amateur radio operator’s station, test their knowledge of Morse Code, and experience modern day innovations in the industry.
