Coming up tomorrow, folks! It's not shown on the poster, but after the show concludes at 12PM, they will be holding a "fast-paced" auction of 100 items, information about which can be found here. Anyway, hope to see everyone there!

It was indeed an excellent show! I picked up a few things, including one-and-a-half radios! Here are photos of some of my finds for good measure:

And actually, there's another NEARC show before spring arrives! It's actually the Radio LII/NEVEE 4 show which would've been held this past spring, but got postponed to November 21st. I will be bumping the thread for it shortly.

Yeah, I have a thing for early calculators, and this one should go nicely with the Panasonic JE-1001 desktop model I picked up awhile back:

Hey All,

I am thinking about Nashua. I'll have to see how things shake out when the date approaches.I am more in the market for parts ,wire, etc -not so much for complete sets.I am pretty well stocked up since the last two Brookline events,but we'll see.

Adam, Ah yes, the old CR-1 ! I got mine many years ago by doing a bit of yard work for a very elderly ship spark operator. This guy was such a salty dog that he had a porthole built into his house !

I recall some years back there was a guy on ebay ( in Japan ?) who wanted to hoard all of these that he could get. He paid some absurd prices for maybe 8 or 12 of these radios. Don't get me wrong , I love my CR-1 , but I wouldn't pay $200+ for one, sorry. This rig seems to be the only "serious" factory built survival crystal radio I've seen.

The only other 50's/60's offering I know of was the B-1 Disaster Radio ( with the mushroom cloud on the box). This rig had super cheapo loop stick coil tuning , a TOY compared to the CR-1.

I am not sure how much good a crystal set would be if the lower 48 was suddenly covered in 6" of glass though. Every station would be knocked down or have no grid power.Still , a nice traveler's or collector's piece.

Very cool! My early crystal radio builds were fairly boring, derived from various examples of Radio Shack's "Project Kits" I got as a kid. I later built a couple of crystal radios from magazine and book instructions, which can be found on this page. This is probably the first commercially-offered crystal radio I've owned, even if it was originally sold as a kit. I too had seen the high prices these CR-1s tend to sell for on eBay, and was glad to find mine at the Brookline show for $10. It's currently largely 'deaf', only picking up a couple of signals which are barely audible, but I'm hoping the fix will be fairly simple, like a new diode or a better ground.
-Adam

Hey Adam ,


Ten bucks for a CR-1 is AWESOME !

Not too much that can go wrong as long as both var caps are good .C-3, C-4 ="problematic" silver mica type ? Diode as you mentioned, also good ant/gnd, decent phones Z match , etc ,etc.

Lots of info online

Enjoy , it's a GREAT find !

K
