quote icon Radio Quote of the Month:
“Roy, come and get this goddamn cat” — first in-flight radio transmission (source)

On Saturday, June 2, NJARC members attended a memorial service for Charles Blanding along with many of his friends and family.
A highlight of this 'celebration of his life' was a heartfelt (and funny!) tribute by his friend Allan Sniffen (of "Rewound Radio" fame)
recounting Charles' lifelong fascination with radio and some of his adventures - and misadventures - as a kid.

Meeting Announcement: April 10, 2020

The New Jersey Antique Radio Club usually meets on the second Friday of each month.
Meetings begin at 7:30 PM.
Meeting location:

Online only!

Join us via Zoom! 7:30 PM
You'll receive a link to the online meeting via an email from THE NJARC Communicator prior to the start of the meeting.

New user of Zoom? Please join us at 7:00 PM for a pre-meeting 'dress rehearsal' to ensure that you'll be successful in atending the actual meeting.

At this 'pre-meeting meeting' you'll have the opportunity to access our Zoom meeting room and to iron out any bugs before the start of the regular monthly meeting at 7:30.

Once the meeting starts at 7:30 it will be more difficult to troubleshoot any problems you may encounter. So if you're new to this (and most of us are!) please join us at 7:00 to help iron out any kinks on this first attempt!

There will be a separate link for the 7:00 PM test meeting and the actual meeting at 7:30 so be careful not to use the test meeting link to access the actual meeting at 7:30.

NJARC meetings are usually held at one of two locations: Bowen Hall on the campus of Princeton University or at InfoAge in Wall Township, NJ.

As all social getherings have been prohibited during the COVID 19 virus outbreak, our April meeting will be held online using the Zoom Cloud Meetings platform.

You can attend our April "virtual meeting" using a computer, a smartphone, a tablet or even just a telephone.

"44 Years Before Hertz:
Experimental Demonstration of
Electromagnetic Waves by Prof. Joseph Henry."

Presented by Prof. Michael Littman, Princeton Univ.

NOTE: This meeting will take place online on Zoom.

Please read our Zoom New User Quickstart Guide
to help ensure that you are able to access the meeting
online via your computer, smartphone, tablet or
by calling in on the telephone.

Please join us online. This first NJARC "Virtual Meeting" may or may not be a little 'rough around the edges' but we've been working on it and we are pretty sure you'll enjoy attending. See you there! (Literally, we'll 'see you' there.)

At our April meeting, club member Prof. Michael Littman of Princeton University will present the program he had intended to offer at our March meeting, which had to be cancelled.

Dr. Littman will offer a presentation titled "44 Years Before Hertz: Experimental Demonstration of Electromagnetic Waves by Prof. Joseph Henry."

Joseph Henry was the leading American scientist after Benjamin Franklin and was a professor at Princeton from 1832 to 1846. There are a number of pieces of Henry's experimental apparatus in Princeton's collection of historic artifacts.

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
