A Note to our Ham Fest Brethren:
In keeping with the spirit of a vintage Ham Fest, please no modern ham gear or computer equipment! Vintage tube and transistor common gear, military surplus, vintage audio, tubes, and vintage parts and test gear welcome. Modern restoration supplies, parts, and equipment are okay. Otherwise, strictly old school.
Auction Notice: Promises to be large!
We are expecting plenty of consignments. Consignment starts at 0900 AM and ends at 11:30 AM or when the Auction Team deems reasonable capacity has been reached.
The National Capital Radio & Television Museum will be consigning a large array of surplus donations it has received, including some vintage communications gear.
