Asheville Radio Museum
2 people are interested
The Southern Appalachian Radio Museum, located on the main campus of A-B Tech, is in need of volunteer hosts to greet visitors, answer questions and provide additional tourism information.
Opened to the public in 2001 by a small group of amateur radio operators, we have evolved from being a collection into a teaching museum, where people of all ages can learn about the history of radio technology and wonder at the equipment and how it evolved.
Our mission is:
To foster an understanding of the technology and history of amateur and commercial radio development and an appreciation of the impact this has had.
By collecting and preserving radio equipment, advertising, and other memorabilia, in an education-oriented museum, with hands-on displays and a working ham station
And, through outreach, offering education programs and tours for interested students.
In doing so, stimulate student interest in science, technology, and engineering (STEM).
Volunteers who have an interest in Commercial and Ham Radios, history and electronics will enjoy this opportunity. 3 hours one day a week, mornings or afternoons. (SPECIAL 2019 SUMMER HOURS: Open 1 PM to 3 PM on Saturdays, June through August.)
