Due to the Covid-19 pandemic the Antique Wireless Association is transitioning some elements of the 2020 AWA Conference to virtual ones since a physical gathering will not be held.

Key historical communications sessions will be posted on the AWA’s YouTube channel.   YouTube will allow all of our AWA members to view presentations including those who don’t usually have an opportunity to attend in person.  Additionally, others interested in electronic communication who are not (yet) AWA members will also be able to view them. These sessions will be available for viewing at your convenience (including binge watching) beginning on August 12th.  Each presenter may monitor YouTube comments for questions and information sharing and reply accordingly.

Some of the scheduled presentations include:
–  126 Years of Amateur Radio Innovation
–  The History of the Amateur Radio Novice Class
–  The Influence of Hiram Percy Maxim on Amateur Radio
–  AWA Amateur Radio “On Air” event presentation
–  Pre-1912 Wireless & Electrical
–  Westinghouse Broadcasting
–  Moonlight Restorations

We now have a conference preview session on our YouTube channel.  It's by member Brian Harrison documenting the involvement of some of our members and the challenge of providing radios and other related items to make the radio scenes in the new PBS series "Across The Pacific" as authentic as possible (limited by budget:-) .  Watch it here: https://youtu.be/Mxo5xX9RtMg

A few our scheduled sessions will be postponed until our 2021 Conference which will have dual themes of “100 Years Of Radio Broadcasting” and a continuation of “The Evolution of Amateur Radio”.

See you in the cloud this year and in person next year.

Mark Erdle
AWA Deputy Director II
