Celebrating our 41st Year
1980 - 2021
The Antique Radio Club of Illinois, is a nationwide family of over 500 people dedicated to the preservation of antique radios and related items. We have bi-monthly meetings and regularly draw collectors and enthusiasts from all over the Midwest.
We now have monthly live on-line video meets containing presentations and more!
When Restore Illinois attains Phase 5 status (Covid no longer a threat), we again meet face to face:
We meet six times per year offering seminars, swap meets and equipment contests. Our Spring, Fall and Winter meets are held at The American Legion hall in Carol Stream, IL.
At our annual Radiofest, we sponsor seminars and displays on various topics related to restoration, historical presentations and helpful "how-tos" for Radiofest attendees. During the Summer months, we have two special meets in June and August each year. Our June meet is a combined meet with the amateur radio 6-Meter Club of Chicago and is held at the DuPage County Fairgrounds in Wheaton, IL.
August brings our nationally renowned, two-day event ... Radiofest!

We have a contingent of people who want a swap-meet no matter what and some that are remaining in lock down until Illinois is at Phase 5. We are aware that some of you will not attend based on health concerns. We fully respect and support your decision.
COVID is still not over. New strains and hot spots are still occurring. We will cancel the event as late as the day of if conditions dictate with no prior notice.
Future meets will go through the same scrutiny until COVID is behind us. Radiofest is a large group gathering and is under additional state constraints.
