We WILL also be live on our regular YouTube channel if you can't access Zoom or simply prefer to watch it that way.


As dedicated radio restorers, we have shown that we can successfully endure hot soldering irons, electrical shocks, exploding capacitors, straining our backs lifting 'boatanchors,' inhaling paint stripper fumes and the Hantavirus, but the Corona Virus has temporarily managed to put a halt to our get-togethers. Our April Meeting was a virtual one, held online on Zoom. If you missed the meeting, it's now available on YouTube as are many of our previous meetings.

quote icon Radio Quote of the Month:
“Radio is a wonderful invention that allows people who have nothing to say to tell that t people who will not listen to them."  — unknown  ((Sounds a lot like the Internet! -- ed.)

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.
You can listen to it here.

Hints and Kinks

If you haven't participated in an online Zoom meeting yet, 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.

Our first Zoom meeting was a big success.

Special thanks to:
  • Prof. Mike Littman for giving us what was essentially a "Master Class" in electromagnetism
  • Al Klase and Bill Sloma for contributing their time and expertise to allow the club to host a Zoom meeting that went smoothly right out of the gate!

At our May meeting, we'll gather 'virtually' again as the Coronavirus emergency limits our ability to gather together physically.

Don't forget that besides our regular monthly meetings, there are informal gatherings taking place on Zoom to "talk radio" several times a week.  Watch your email from The NJARC Communicator for schedules.

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
