Memento of RSGB’s 75th anniversary celebration 1988

April 03, 2012 By: barclayjamesadmin Category: News

In 1988, Eddystone Radio were approached by the Radio Society of Great Britain (RSGB) to participate in their 75th Anniversary Celebrations at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham. We came up with the idea of showing a couple of sets from each decade from 20s-30s-40s-50s-60s-70s-80s using a six sided display. Each display had pictures and information on sets from that decade and on a table in front of the display we put a couple of sets from that decade. Unfortunately we didn’t get any good pics of the display nor the display that the RSGB put on using exhibits from their Potters Bar museum. We provided a printed list of all the sets displayed at the event including those belonging to the RSGB and from other ham’s collections. This catalogue can be found here
