December 7, 2019 we remember “The Date that will Live in Infamy” with a Wartime Radio Contest and general Swap Meet at the Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church (1500 W. Maryland Ave., Phoenix) from 9am to 12pm. Everyone can come to browse, buy and yak about old radios. New to antique radio collecting? We welcome you to visit and join our club! You can pay your dues at the swap meet by seeing our treasurer and receiving an AZARC hat and screw driver tool.FOR PAID-UP MEMBERS ONLY:
Selling – is reserved for paid members of AZARC. Want to buy good stuff? Bring good stuff to sell! Sellers can start setting up at 8am.
Contests – members can win CA$H prizes in our two contests. To honor Pearl Harbor Day, the “date which will live in infamy” our contest will be on Wartime Radios: patriotic themed radios, WWII military radios, enemy radios, etc. We will also have a Best of Show radio, which can be anything.
