One of the many things I’ve always dreamed of Quelab being, is a place various clubs and organizations which are inline with the interests of Quelab and the member interests could meet at. Aside from the now semi defunct 2600 meeting’s this has not been realized as well as I hoped. But the idea was kicked off in grand fashion by the visit of the New Mexico Radio Collectors Club (NMRCC) A dedicated group of collectors and restorers and repairs of everything from vintage console radios, to the tabletop tombstone ones, all the way down to pocket transistor, and some members are into the HAM aspects too.
The club held its annual potluck, swapmeet, meeting, Show and tell, and club auction, there were some beautiful radios. They also had an AM transmitter connected to a XM radio playing classic 1920’s-1940’s tunes, for one of the restored console radios.
I snapped some photos of the meeting There was actually a lot more cool stuff I never got around to snapping.
