They will operate the AM station as time permits but it was primarily set
up for visitors who would like to operate a vintage AM station when they
visit W1AW. It also provides visitors a look back to the type of
equipment that was used by the "average" ham of the 50's. AM
International has a printed brochure available. I believe brochures
are/will be available at W1AW and W1AW received a Certificate of
Membership to AM International when the equipment was installed.

ARRL has a number of publications available including the recently issued
"Vintage Radio". To learn more about it, and a number of others go here:
http://www.remote.arrl.org/catalog/index.php3?category=History%2FAdventur
e

Aspiring AM hams can also join here or go to http://www.amfone.net or
http://www.amwindow.org/ to get a lot of information. And most AM'ers
will gladly "elmer" an aspiring new or "seasoned" ham in the art of AM
operation.

If you want to see some of the photos taken at W1AW during the
installation and operating go to any or all of the sites listed below.
