Antique Wireless Association
Conference and Auction Report
Rochester, New York -- September 2-5, 1998


Web Edition

The Antique Wireless Association (AWA) held its 37th annual historical radio conference at the Thruway Marriott Hotel in Rochester, New York, on September 2-5, 1998. Registered attendees numbered 910, but total attendance was over 1,000. These numbers, up from last year, would seem to negate the view that the internet will supplant meets where collectors can gather face-to-face and enjoy wide-ranging radio talk.

Even the threatening weather was not a deterrent to the crowd for the flea market. Bobby Lyman at A.R.C.'s outdoor tables had to duck the surprise rain showers more than once, but most vendors hung in there. At the height of the action on Wednesday, the number of vendors enoying the pleasures of old-fashioned barter appeared to equal the over 200 of last year. Particularly noteworthy was the participation of families, evidenced by the photo on our cover. If at all possible, collectors seem to plan their vacations around this premier radio event.

The conference consisted of a giant outdoor flea market, an indoor book fair, four auctions, an old equipment contest, presentations, and trips to the AWA Museum. An added attraction was John Dilks' mobile museum in a converted van containing amateur radio gear and an operating ham station.

The special theme this year was Zenith, and the company was prominent in presentations and contest entries. The presentations included "The Zenith Windcharger," and "Zenith Transistor Radios and Literature." Featured in the old equipment contest was a broad range of Zenith categories, from the early days of the Chicago Radio Labs to Trans-Oceanics and transistor radios. Trans-Oceanics covering a wide scope of manufacturing times, and a collection of Zenith pocket transistor radios, including clones by other manufacturers, were on display.

Among other outstanding display items was Jim Wilson's Acme Tri-Flex breadboard set beautifully arranged with an Acme cone speaker and related ads. Readers will remember Jim's article on this set in the October 1998 A.R.C. A 1922 Leutz Model L Armstrong Superheterodyne receiver, about six feet long, made a strong statement.

Extremely rare 1920 Mignon Type RW-4 undamped wave receiver.
Figure 2. Included in the contest was this extremely rare 1920 Mignon Type RW-4 undamped wave receiver.
This set was made to operate with either a globe type tube with the standard socket base or tubular Audion, as shown here.

Attendees were never at a loss for interesting things to hear and see. Lauren Peckham presented an excellent pre-1912 wireless and electrical apparatus display, while Bob McIntyre offered a well-attended restoration clinic. Peter Yanczer gave an interesting demonstration of a flying spot scanner and receiver. And other presentation topics were "Shortwave History," "Key and Telegraph," "Early Radio Premiums," "H.J. Round and the UV-199," "The Life of Alexander Graham Bell," "Mahlon Loomis," and "Old Timer Radio."

At the Friday evening banquet, the program of music and comedy was directed by Gary Yoggy. Featured were the Elmira Little Theatre, which recreates early radio shows, and the "Boogie Woogie Girls."

As always, the auctions generated much excitement. The approximate statistics for all four auctions were 650 lots selling at $64,500, an increase of about 3 1/2 percent over last year.

The communications auction, held on Thursday and conducted by Ed Gable, has a less formal air than that of the big Friday auction in that Thursday buyers and sellers finalize their own deals. After the winning bidder is determined at auction, the seller and buyer get together and exchange money and items. AWA collects 10 percent from the seller.

This sale is limited to vintage ham, military and commercial equipment (otherwise, affectionately known as "boat anchors"). There were 55 items presented, down from 66 last year, but the total realized was $3,826, only down $150 or so from last year. The high bid was $450 for a Collins 75A-4 receiver. This was the highest single item, communications auction bid since 1993.

Although the Friday main auction started at 9:00 a.m. and lasted until a few minutes before 6:00 p.m. (with a one-hour lunch break), the crowd did not thin out too much, and prices held up to the end. Bruce Roloson started as auctioneer, but was soon relieved when Walt Buffinton arrived. The audience was large and maintained spirited bidding on the better items.

In the vacuum tube auction, the top sellers were two DeForest spherical Audions at $550 and $410. (It is rumored that an outstanding example of a spherical Audion sold in the flea market for $1,500.) The auction prices were down from the $1,750 price of last year because both tubes had significant problems. A beautiful Daven amplifier, complete with red, white and blue Sonotron tubes, sold for $400.

Tubes by a number of manufacturers sold for over $100, including DeForest, Cunningham, Morehead, Raytheon, Western Electric, Sodion, and several foreign companies. TV-related tubes, such as a GE Iconoscope, a Raytheon Kenolamp, and a Western Electric CRT also did well.

Rare books topped the bidding in the paper auction. The 1901 book, Wireless Telegraphy by Kerr, sold for $360, while The Wireless Telegraph Boy, 1908, by Trowbridge brought $290.

RCA "Red Books" and Rider's manuals were in abundance and sold well. Two unusual items brought surprising prices -- an RCA baseball score sheet filled out for the 1922 World Series selling at $200, and a Zenith 1928-29 salesman's handbook at $310.

In the main equipment auction, manufacturers from Atwater Kent and Crosley to Westinghouse and Zenith were represented and sold well. The undisputed highlight was a Canadian Independent Telephone Co. wireless set selling at $2,600.

Others of note were an Atwater Kent breadboard at $1,000, a Motorola Catalin at $1000, a Northern Electric 510 at $1,100, a "shining" Russian Red Star radio at $1,050, and two DeForest sets -- a D-17 and a D-12 -- at $1,000 and $1,350 respectively.

Figure 4. One of the highlights in this year's auction was this Canadian Independent Telephone Co. 3-tube wireless receiver, which drew a high bid of $2,600.

Two telegraph items brought solid prices -- one by Bunnel at $825, the other by Erickson at $800. Horns also did well. An Amplion AR-19 horn speaker sold for $400, while a Murdock 500 brought $550. A Grebe CR8 sold for $625. In all, the auctions were very successful and indicate that collectors are still supportive of such events. Next year's AWA Conference will be held September 1-4, and the theme will be Philco. Hope to see you all there.

All prices have been rounded down to the dollar in the following report.

A warning: Auction prices are not current values. Our selection of auction items is not necessarily complete. A listing such as this cannot adequately include the condition of cabinets, chassis, transformers, tubes, the operating status of the set, and the inclusion of incorrect, restored or replica components, etc. Auction prices are the result of the excitement of the auction process, the skill of the auctioneer and the specific interests of the participants. Nevertheless, auction prices serve as useful references and as another element in the value determining process. The possibility of error always exists, and if we are notified, corrections will be reported.
