Our vision…

To preserve and share the history of technology used to communicate and entertain from the first telegram to today’s wireless text messaging.

Where to start?

If you want to learn, begin with the content about the Antique Wireless Museum and consider a visit when visiting the Rochester, NY area. 

If you live in the region, review the diversity of events organized by Antique Wireless Museum, whether as a student at one of our classes or one of our after-hours evening programs. 

Or attend either of our major events each year, the Spring Meet focused on equipment collectors and the Annual Conference where we have a multiple day series of presentations, each on a unique topic related to communication technology.

The top of this page has photos highlighting some of the diverse opportunities supported by Antique Wireless Association efforts.

As you learn about Antique Wireless Association and the Museum, consider one of several possible classes of membership.  Many types of participation are offered.

After your visit to our site, remember to check back frequently and explore the site’s constantly changing opportunities to learn about one or more facets of our preservation and educational efforts.

The Antique Wireless Association is a New York state chartered educational organization and maintains a 501(c)(3) non-profit status under the United States IRS guidelines.
