Tuesday, October 18, 6:30 pm: The Audio Society of Minnesota hosts local manufacturer Bel Canto. Just back from the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest in Denver, they will be showing us and playing their latest gear. We may even get to hear some exceptional speakers from Fine Sounds stablemate Sonus Faber!
Join the Audio Society for an evening of in-depth discussion and listening. Attendance is free for all, and light refreshments will be on hand. The presentation begins at 7:00 PM, though we encourage you to join us at 6:30 for casual discussion.

Saturday, October 29, 10:00 am: Magnets to Megahertz DC begins. This is a six-week class that teaches the fundamentals of electricity.

Please call or email the Museum for more information.

Saturday November 5, 8:30 am to 1:00 pm: The Fall Swapmeet at the St. Croix Lutheran Church in West St. Paul, sponsored by The Northland Antique Radio Club. Those who register and pay for a seller table (tables, provided by the school, are $10 each) will be admitted at 8:00 AM, allowing them time to haul in merchandise and get set up. Due to the limited number of tables available, only paid NARC members will be allowed to set up and sell. You can join or renew your $12 yearly membership at the meet.

Saturday, November 12, 2:00 pm: The Minnesota DX Club meets here the second Saturday of every month from November through June. Stop in and share your stories of long distance reception and learn about the latest receiving equipment.

Price is still only $150 for this course.

Sunday, February 19, 2017, 12:00 noon: The Annual Radio Workshop. This year we’ll have a distortion analyzer shoot-out along with other demos of interest to radio collectors and hi-fi enthusiasts.
