Does the collection need to stay in Canada or can it be moved to the US?

Is it possible to get a list of available equipment and documentation?  Perhaps some brand-specific organizations will be interested in saving equipment of their brands.  For example, I'm confident the Collins organizations will be interested in saving any Collins equipment available.  Perhaps the same can be said of other organizations for other brands of equipment.

Some thoughts for today: 
1. We are hams. Not HAMs. "Ham" is not an acronym. 
2. We don't have "personals" on amateur radio. We have names or handles; on ham radio your "handle" is your name, not some made-up nickname. 
3. Please use standard phonetics, it really does help; see www.standardphonetics.com
