Our bounty of artifacts, ephemera and important documents compels us to a new level of professionalism and to an amplified audience beyond our membership.
Thus our Vision: “AWA…To preserve and share the history of technology that we use to communicate and entertain from the first telegram to today’s wireless text messaging.”
Endless research and preservation of artifacts and ephemera from wireless to cellular telephone have sparked enthusiasm in generations of dedicated radio amateurs, hobbyists, volunteers and friends around the globe. The cumulative contributions and successes of more than half a century leave AWA a responsibility to enhance our museum, research and preservation efforts and reach out to educate, engage and inspire a broader audience.
Our vast, expanding treasure trove (more than 10,000 pieces of equipment, for example) deserves to be shared thoughtfully but enthusiastically with curious new generations of radio amateurs, hobbyists, researchers, educators, students, radio clubs, tourists and the general public.
Thus the exciting new AWA Antique Wireless Museum & Research Campus is our professional apparatus for enhanced preservation of, interaction with, and transmission of fascinating waves of radio history across the boundaries of space, time, distance and culture.
Our founders would no doubt be impressed with the power of their dreams!
