Auction Catalog Version 6 Posted!

With Starting Prices

AUCTION NOTES: Some may have noticed that our traditional CHRS auction is changing. For years we would offer gear in almost any condition with lots of projects offered. But things are evolving. Our audience is changing. We have our collectors… not as many… and now we get more of the general public who want a beautiful working set for their homes. So we have have embraced the idea of offering only top quality radios in the auction. We have many desirable collectors sets and many sets with more general appeal. But every one of them has been evaluated, electrically and some cosmetically restored and some have been equipped with an aux input. All have been safety tested. So if there is any question about our start prices, remember much time, effort and materials went into the preparation of these radios and our prices reflect those facts. These are all ready to display, plug & play. Thanks to our fine auction crew, Kent Leech, (data entry & lists) & Walt Hayden, (photography). And a huge thank you to the crew who restored these sets.

Be Patient… It’s Coming Soon!

You may notice that our Radio Day poster does not list our customary second location, either the Veterans Auditorium or the Kofman Auditorium. That’s because neither venue is available. But, the show must go on! So this year Radio Day By The Bay will be held on stage under a tent top in our parking lot. Guest parking provided just around the corner in the Alameda High School’s staff parking lot on Walnut St. A very short walk. See the map below. This should be fun!
