Sunday, February 19, 2017, 11:00 am: The Annual Radio Workshop co-sponsored by the Northland Antique Radio Club. Gary Ball has put together another one of his fine presentations on transistor radio repair, Matt will bring us up to speed on restoration of paper products, Bill Williams will show us how he restored a 1949 Pilot 3" television, and we’ll have a distortion analyzer shoot-out along with other demos of interest to radio collectors and hi-fi enthusiasts, and of course, our usual mini-garage sale inside the Museum starting at 11:00 am. Weather looks great so expect a lot of "trunk sales" in the parking lot beforehand.

Tuesday, February 21, 2017, 7:00 pm: The Audio Society presents an in-depth analysis and demonstration of his Line Source (Line Array concepts) speaker system. This should prove to be very informative and interesting. Please join them here at the Museum for an evening of cutting edge speaker design. Attendance is free for all, and light refreshments will be on hand. The presentation begins at 7:00 PM, and, as always we encourage you to join us at 6:30 for more casual conversation.
