Southern Appalachian Radio Museum

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.)
