Guest speaker, Wayne Spring (W6IRD), will be explaining and demonstrating a working Collins Radio.

Wayne Spring is very well known in the U.S. and many places around the world for his expertise with tube radios. He is a member of the board of the Collins Collectors Organization. He has rebuilt many early tube radios that he has purchased at various swap meets.

Wayne made his first radio as a young lad and with a simple wire antenna started working countries on CW. At very young age of 17 he joined the Coast Guard and worked as a radio operator. He worked for the government for many years and recently was asked to repair some old equipment that no one else knew how to fix. He is an Elmer to many hams and is always willing to give a helping hand.


Ham Radio Examinations will be administered at 6:00 PM, prior to the start of our general meeting. Cost is $15/attempt. Pre-registration is not required and you don’t need to be a SOARA member to take the test.
