Minutes of the SARA Meeting


SARA MEETING MINUTES - March 12, 2008 (approved 4/9/08)

Meeting called to order at 7:30 pm by Vern Leavitt

Speaker:  Al Braun introduced our guest speaker: Stan Bryn

Stan Bryn (AC5TW) restores World War II Battleship radios; he has done 35 in the last 4 years. He had been stationed on the battleship USS Alabama during the war, after the US realized they would need radios on ships, on shore, and in planes to be able to communicate during the war. The Navy received their first new radio in 1941. He brought a tube and a radio from that era, and presented an excellent history of his experiences. After the meeting, he amazed all the members by turning on the radio, and it worked quite well.
