I pondered on it but I am gunna deal myself out this year. I went to the last one in Canberra and will go to the next one (in 2016?) if circumstances permit and if it is again in Canberra and not Melbourne.

I'll probably drop in on the Sunday public session - I'm not a HRSA member (yet??).

The auction catalogue is limited to about 57 choice items, none later than about 1935, and mostly restored to within an inch of its life. None of the kind of rubbish I can afford to mess around with.

The exhibition should be pretty interesting. See details at http://www.ozradios.com/.

Notwithstanding a major disaster, I will be there. I will not be in time for the auction but will be interested in hearing how it goes. I will have a 1925 Igranic Superhet 6 for sale in a couple of years time and this appears to be a perfect occasion for such a radio.

That should be a pretty rare radio in this part of the world.

I just picked up a 1926 Victoreen Superhet set, these were a kit radio. I have copies of the original plans. need to make a box and get a speaker. Hoping to acquire one of those speakers from Canberra auction.
