The AWA Review or The Antique Wireless Association 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 31 was published in 2018. No volumes were published in 1994 or 1997. In recent years, the AWA has received anonymous grants to distribute the Review free-of-charge to all members (usually in summer).

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. A complete cumulative bibliography of articles may be found at the AWA's website (see External Links, below).

Volume 12 (1999) was entirely devoted to Atwater Kent radios. It was written by noted Atwater Kent collector/historian Ralph O. Williams.[1]

Volume 31 (2018) comprises 8 articles, a letter to the editor and an editor's forward in 296 pages. It includes numerous photographs and illustrations, with some in color. The editor is Eric P. Wenaas, Ph.D.[2]
