Description

The Hammond Museum of Radio got its start when museum founder Fred Hammond began collecting early radio and wireless artifacts at the age of 16. The first public display of his collection was in a small building at the rear of his College Street home that originally housed his ham station.

When in the early '70s, Hammond Manufacturing Company built a new plant on Guelph's Curtis Road, Fred made sure a 4,000 square foot area was reserved to house the 'Hammond Museum of Radio'. Shortly before Fred's passing in 1999, a complete new and larger facility at the Hammond Manufacturing Company's new expansion at the South Transformer Plant became the current home for the Museum.

The new Museum is now home to hundreds of receivers and transmitters dating from the spark era up to and including National's first solid state HRO500. Over the years the Museum has evolved to become one of North America's premiere wireless museums.

The Hammond Museum of Radio hosts one of the largest operational collection of Collins Radio equipment anywhere.
With Collins building less than 100 of its 30K stations, this fully operational Collins 30K is a rare find.
