|1986 to present|
The AWA Review is a series of annual softcover books of original research articles on the history of radio. It is published by the Antique Wireless Association (AWA), a membership organization founded in 1952 and based in Bloomfield, New York, USA. Volume 1 was published in 1986 and Volume 27 was published in 2014. No volume was published in 1997. In recent years, the AWA has received anonymous grants to distribute the Review free-of-charge to all members.
Articles typically address the technical history of radio and related technologies, including associated equipment, manufacturers, publications and inventors and other key individuals. They generally do not emphasize broadcast program content. A significant amount of published material is of interest to collectors of early radio receivers, vacuum tubes and similar materials. Neutral "peer reviewers" read and comment on articles prior to final editing for publication. A complete cumulative bibliography of articles may be found at the AWA's website (see External Links, below).
Volume 27 (2014) comprises nine articles and an editor's forward in 288 pages. It includes numerous photographs and illustrations, with some in color. The editor is Robert P. Murray, Ph.D. of Vancouver, BC, Canada.
