The Coquitlam Amateur Radio Club in conjunction with the SPARC (Society for the Preservation of Antique Radio in Canada) Museum participated in Port Moody Public Library’s “Retro-Tech Petting Zoo” on Feb 7, 2015.
This event showcased various technologies from the past and allowed adults to reminisce and the young to learn about various technologies that evolved into products they commonly use today.
Pat Jones VE7PRJ (right) from SPARC demonstrated a spark-gap generator, a 1914 World War 1 trench telegraphy field unit along with amateur radio equipment (using tubes) from the 1970’s.
Richard Wodzianek VA7RLW (left) demonstrated the latest in field-ready amateur radio technology – all microprocessor based.
Everyone that visited our demonstrations had fun and the kids really enjoyed learning about Morse code.
We thank Maryn Ashdown of the Port Moody Public Library for inviting us to participate in this very educational and informative event.
