Annual club dues are $25.00 and include a monthly newsletter, The Call Letter. This informative newsletter informs members of the society's business  and supports the hobby of collecting, preserving and restoring vintage  radios.  The NWVRS club will periodically organize radio displays and  educational presentations in and around Portland.

Next Show and  Sale

We will allow the public to place items in the auction with reserves and only charge a 20% fee.  (10% for club members)  This fee will only be charged if the item sells and meets or exceeds the reserve limit.
