Description

The Mid-Atlantic Antique Radio Club (MAARC) is a hobby club for those dedicated to collecting, restoring, and preserving vintage radio and television equipment. Collecting antique radio equipment is a fun and interesting past time that appeals to a variety of folks from the pure collectors who are looking for their next great find, to the technicians and tinkerers who like to restore the electronics or refinish cabinets, to the historians and preservationists interested in the history of the technology, to those who are into it as a small business. Many involved dabble in several of these areas. All enjoy the comeraderie of a shared interest. You will find radio collectors to be a friendly and honest group who does not take themselves too seriously, while recognizing they are preserving a part of our heritage. MAARC was founded in the summer of 1984. Starting with a handful of radio collectors, the club has grown steadily. MAARC now has nearly a thousand members, making it the largest regional club of it's kind in the USA. Most are in the Washington/Baltimore area, but MAARC has members in nearly every state and even a few in other countries. Monthly meetings are currently held in Davidsonville, MD. Each June MAARC sponsors a large convention called RadioActivity that draws many collectors from the eastern half of the country and even beyond. A one day Mini-Meet, the RadioFallFest is run in September or October. The Flea Market is the main attraction at both these events. Auctions are generally held at each meeting, during RadioActivity, and at RadioFallFest. The auctions provide members the opportunity to buy and sell old radios, tubes, parts and literature at good prices. Here are MAARC's auction policies (in .pdf format, requires Adobe® reader software). Check the MAARC Calendar of Events page for dates and times of these events.
