The Antique Wireless Association was started in 1952 by Bruce Kelley, George Batterson, and Linc Cundall – amateur radio operators and radio collectors from upstate New York. Their initial goal was to collect and preserve early wireless and radio equipment and historical information before it was lost to future generations. Their successful AWA legacy continues after nearly 60 years.
The AWA, with over 2,100 international members, is chartered as a non-profit organization in New York State, an IRS 501(c)(3) tax-exempt corporation, and is a member of the American Association of Museums. To learn more about AWA and its history, or to join, visit the AWA website.
