This past Sunday, we decided to take a small trip north to St. Joseph, Missouri. St. Joe is full of history and one of my favorite places to go there is the Patee House Museum. Two parts of the museum I enjoy the most:
(1) A railroad telegraph office with a nice collection of telegraph keys
(2) An amazing display of vintage radios as well as an old amateur radio station
Julius B. Abercrombie, W0NH (ex 9NH) was a member of the Old Old Timers Club and first got on the air back in 1906! It looks like Julius was one of the original Midwestern Big Guns.
I really enjoyed his collection of convention pins (…open the image below to see the details of the pins)
