John Dilks

For September, we'll be featuring a presentation by John Dilks, K2TQN on the topic of "Old Transmissions and Voices from the Past."

You will hear early Ship-Shore and Ship-Ship 500kc CW Transmissions, and what some of the early Ham and Radio Pioneer voices sounded like, including the voices of Marconi, Jack Binns, Irving Vermila, De Forest, Gernsback, Armstrong, Reinartz, Deloy - French 8ab, Elmo Pickerill, Art Collins, General Griswold, and CD Tuska speaking about starting QST magazine.

You will also hear an actual SOS received by David Ring, N1EA, who was the operator on the "WILLIAMSBURGH" who answered the SOS from the passenger ship "PRINSENDAM" in 1980.

PLEASE NOTE that due to copyright restrictions, we will not be webcasting this meeting live, but all are welcome, so please make plans to join us in person in Princeton !

The New Jersey Antique Radio Club is dedicated to the preservation of radio history. The club usually meets on the second Friday of each month. Check the meeting announcement each month for the location of that month's meeting and any deviation from the usual night. There is a small Radio Swap Meet before and after the meetings which start promptly at 7:30 PM. Every month there is a "Tech Talk" radio collecting presentation. Anyone interested in old radios is welcome to attend and join. Several times a year, the club sponsors a swapmeet featuring an antique radio flea market and auction.


Our thoughts and prayers continue to go out to the brave and the innocent
