The Southern Appalachian Radio Museum (SARM) in Asheville North Carolina is the museum where you can experience the fun and joy of playing and looking at all sorts of videos along with our very own amateur radio station W4AFM, where you can take a turn on air!
This museum once belonged to one of the leaders in the radio industry, Bill Hayes, who was licensed in 1926 and guided many in the world of amateur radio. The exhibits in the museum displays various types of radios from Atwater Kent, Philco, Silvertone, Edison phonographs, Crosley, Hammarlund, Harvey Wells, test instruments, spark gap transmitters, keys, ancient QSL cards and more!
Our staff and our volunteers filled with knowledge and experience with radios will provide you with -a wonderful opportunity to interest you with radios. Many early radios and other items to do with radios have been generously donated from the community, as this is the place in the Southeast for your collection to be enjoyed by many others! We are located near Blue Ridge Parkway on the campus of the Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College.
