VOA Museum to Host Amateur Radio Reception during Hamvention


The National Voice of America Museum of Broadcasting, located at the former VOA Bethany, Ohio, Relay Station, will host a reception on Saturday, May 21, 6:30-9 PM, for Dayton Hamvention® attendees.

The museum will be open for tours, and the West Chester Amateur Radio Club station WC8VOA — located in the original VOA control room — will be available for operation. The museum displays a collection of R.L. Drake equipment as well as the Collins 821A 250 kW shortwave transmitter that was used at the site.

Admission is $5. Refreshments will be offered. The museum is located south of Dayton off I-75. Exit at Tylersville Road, and turn left at the top of the ramp. The museum is about 1 mile east on the left (north) side of Tylersville Road. — Thanks to Jay Adrick, K8CJY, via
