SCOTCH PLAINS/FANWOOD, NJ - The Historical Society of Scotch Plains and Fanwood will be holding their monthly meeting on Tuesday evening March 26th ti explore such questions as “What does the sinking of the Titanic have to do with the popularizing of the radio?
Ray Chase, a member and trustee of the New Jersey Antique Radio Club (NJARC) will trace the history of radio with a talk and a power point presentation. Mr. Chase received training in radar systems during his military service and has worked for several technology companies. He is a certified Quality Engineer by the American Society for Quality Assurance. His long-term interest in radio and radar technology resulted in the accumulation of a sizable library and a modest collection of antique radios as well as WWII era military electronic equipment, some of which he will display at the meeting. Out of this passion, Ray was instrumental in establishing the Radio Technology Museum at InfoAge.
Everyone is invited to attend this meeting Tuesday evening March 26th, starting at 8:00PM. The meeting takes place at Scotch Hills Country Club on Plainfield Ave. and Jerusalem Rd. in Scotch Plains. It is free, open to the public and refreshments will be served. Please contact Connie Klock, 908-232-9489 to RSVP.
