Welcome to the Arizona Antique Radio Club
Our club was founded in 1983 by a group of radio pioneers and is dedicated to the preservation of radio history. The collections and interests of our club members are diverse – vacuum tube radios, transistors, crystal sets, televisions and vintage hi-fi – and AZARC serves the collecting and restoration needs of our members with swap meets and special events throughout the year. We invite anyone with an interest in vintage radio collecting and preservation to join. See our Membership page for more information, and our Coming Events page.
Dear AZARC Members and Visitors,
This year, 2020, has been a year like no other. A lot of things have been cancelled and are continuing to be cancelled. Because of this, the AZARC board discussed cancelling the events for the remainder of the year. While the meets are not only a way to purchase and sell radios, it is also a way to visit with fellow radio collectors, so we felt that the safety of our members is top priority. In addition our meeting venues have made it clear that no groups of 10 or more are able to congregate in their building and strict social distancing must be practiced.
We have discussed the possibility of holding an outdoor swap meet in December, but currently we have no definite plans. We will let everyone know if we decide to have one.
Since we have had only one swap meet this year and as of right now, no plans to have any more (with the exception of the December possibility) we have decided to count the 2020 dues for 2021 as well. If you have already paid your 2020 dues, you will not have to pay any dues for 2021. If you have not paid your 2020 dues yet, when you do, it will be for 2021 as well.
In closing, I hope everyone and your family are staying safe and healthy. We hope to see you all in 2021 or maybe December 2020 (to be determined). Hope you all are enjoying your radios!!
