Tag Sale on Museum Gear Announced in Connecticut

Hand-crank Victrolas. Radios from the 1920s. Ham gear. A quarter of a million records from throughout the 1900s.
This sounds like an antique gear-lover’s dream. On June 5, the Vintage Radio and Communications Museum of Connecticut will sell off a portion of its collection of
communications equipment as part of the annual Spring Swap Meet.
“The time has come for us to pare down our collection,” said President John Ellsworth. “This is a great opportunity for people to buy nice collectible pieces, parts sets, repairable sets, records, tapes and other vintage communications equipment.” Money will benefit the museum.
The date is Saturday, June 5; the sale runs 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 33 Mechanic Street in Windsor, Conn., along with the annual Spring Swap Meet.
The list of items to be sold includes record players, vintage military communications gear, hundreds of radio history and theory books, thousands of radio and TV schematics, antique TVs, repair parts and the museum’s collection of more than 250,000 records, dating from the 1900s to the 1990s.
