Vintage Radio and Communications Museum

John Ellsworth

Since founding the Vintage Radio and Communications Museum in 1990, John Ellsworth has shepherded the museum through six moves—starting with a 500 square foot rented space to its present 18,000 square foot building that the museum owns today.

The museum is also home to the Vintage Radio and Communications Ham Club with a working station, W1VCM, and the DeGeorge Memorial recording studio for music and vocal recordings and for transcriptions of vintage sound recordings to modern digital format.

John will present an engaging history of the museum, and will show samples of the museum’s collection. You will enjoy this talk.

John has a Batchelor’s Degree in Industrial Arts and a Master’s Degree in Administration.


If Niskayuna High School cancels evening classes and activities, the SARA meeting will normally be cancelled and possibly rescheduled. Listen to the SARA 147.060 repeater for meeting status information and whether the meeting will be rescheduled.

SARA meetings are generally held in the Little Theatre of the Niskayuna High School on Balltown Road unless otherwise noted. Attendees should enter the school through the cafeteria entrance located on the side of the school, adjacent to the Nott Street Extension school parking lot.
