Wisconsin Antique Radio Club Swap Meet

WHERE: Knights of Columbus
1800 S. 92nd Street,
West Allis, WI 53214

General Meet Information

There is no charge for admission!

Please note the later start time!

Doors open at 7:00 AM for only the sellers to allow them time to set up their displays. Buyers please be patient until the flea market starts at 8:00 AM to enter. Club announcements are held at 10:30 AM followed by the donation auction and free pizza (usually around 11:00). Each meet will vary slightly, so check out the monthly flyer for more information!

As typical of most swap meets, the items are for sale by individual collectors, and most are one-of-a-kind. So for best selection (and the best deals), BE EARLY! But please stay around and get to meet some of the club members. These swap meets are a great way to connect with other local collectors that share your interests. By socializing at the meets you can find others that may have what you are looking for, radios & parts, people that can service your radios, and you can make some good friends.

Swap meet spaces are $7 for WARCI members, and $10 for non-members. Tables will be provided for indoor use only and are first-come, first-serve.

WARCI is hosting 8 swap meets in 2018. For the upcoming meet schedule, please go to http://warci.org/calendar/ for specific information.

Also see our Facebook page for more current club information: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Wisconsi ... 0503344505

Now that it is a new year, it is time for members to renew their memberships. It's also the best time of year for new members to join up. Interested? Here's a little more information to tell you what the club is all about:

The Wisconsin Antique Radio Club, Inc. exists to preserve the history and enhance the knowledge of radio, television, and other related disciplines, promote fellowship and the exchange of ideas and experience between antique radio collectors. We have a special interest in the history of radio in our home state of Wisconsin: Wisconsin radio companies and their radios, Wisconsin radio stations, etc. Our members' interests include radio (encompassing transmitters, earphones, speakers, antennas, tubes, batteries, components, etc as well as receivers), television, audio, and antique phonographs.

Individual memberships are $15 for the calendar year (January - December), including a subscription to the WARCI News.

WARCI holds five swap meets in the Milwaukee-area each year, in January, March, July, September and November. The seller's fee at Swap Meets is $7.00 for members, $10 for non-members. WARCI also joins the Ozaukee Radio Club in Cedarburg in May for their Spring Swapfest (times and fees vary). Additional swap meets in April and October are hosted by the Madison chapter of WARCI and follow the same schedule. Swap meet times are 8:00AM - 11:00AM. Doors open at 8:00AM for set-up. Check the WARCI website for the meet schedule.

WARCI publishes the WARCI News five times per year (January, March, May, July, and September) in PDF or hard copy. The newsletter reports on club activities, includes articles contributed by members (currently featuring a series of articles on Wisconsin radio companies), photos from club swap meets, news and events of neighboring clubs including ARCI, NARC, and MARC, and members' classified ads.

The club operates the WARCI website at http://www.warci.org. The website features information on club activities and a growing compilation of information about Wisconsin radio companies and their radios, including photographs and WARCI News articles about the companies. The intent is to gradually develop an overall history of radio in Wisconsin, its companies, broadcasting stations, etc. Back issues of the WARCI News and the Battery Set Compendium are also available for download from the website. WARCI is also on Facebook.

WARCI also takes special pride in promoting in the newsletter and the website Bob Paquette's world class Microphone Museum displaying Bob's magnificent collection. http://warci.org/bob-paquettes-microphone-museum/ .

You can join the club by picking up an application at any of our meets, or you can find the information on our club website. http://warci.org/join/

The January meet was one of our best attended. I even came home with a nice Motorola table radio. Photos from the January meet are now available on our website!
