Australian Vintage radio Society AGM 2016

While in Melbourne on business I had the lucky chance to attend the Annual General Meeting on Sept 3 2016. The AGM was held at the wonderful St Faiths Church hall. I was warmly welcomed as an international visitor by all the members.

There was an interesting exhibit of Bakelite radios from Australia and New Zealand as well as some members radios. They also had a small flea market and I was able to purchase some cloth covered wire for a rebuild project and this wire is getting harder and harder to find in new old stock condition.

After the members voted on the new Board of Directors, there was tea and a rare chance to see a video about Gerald Wells a famous british radio collector.

All in all it was a great way to spend a few hours with radio enthusiasts.
