After much searching and persuasion, we were lucky to locate the excellent collection of Morse Keys owned by Dave Couch VK6WT ( now SK ).
Dave’s family agreed to us putting them on display at the club and we are eternally greatfull for their help !
Keith VK6RK has been cleaning them up (when he has the time!) and putting them on display in our meeting room.
The collection is over 170 keys strong and at present most of the straight keys are on display, hopefully some of the ” bugs” and ” cootees” will be there soon as well.
If you visit on a Sunday morning or at meetings you can have a look at those on display.
There is also a small ‘old equipment’ museum gathering at the club.
Still quite a work in progress, however there is plenty of older Amateur Radio equipment – some of it in working condition being put on display. Also old QSL cards and photgraph collections from the club archives are in place.
We will eventually also have an old Vaccuum tube / Valve bank for those that need to find some glowing glass for their restoration projects. At this stage there is a limited number, but a heap of receiving tubes will be put in the NCRG store catalogue soon.
