The AWASA is a non-profit organization run by volunteers for all radio amateurs, short wave listeners and anybody who has an interest in older types of short wave radios and other equipment, such as test equipment from earlier days. Although most members are licensed radio amateurs who concentrate on amateur radio transmitters and receivers, there are also some who restore and use vintage broadcast receivers and others who specialize in test equipment. We have members with a wide range of interests encompassing the days of crystal sets up to fairly modern ex-military radio equipment.
We run the ZS6IEE station at the Innes House museum, please find more details and directions here.
