Museum Volunteer Receives
Earth Charter Award 


Longtime volunteer, Ed Sax has been presented the Seabury chapter of the Earth Charter Group’s “Sustainability Achievement Award of Excellence”.  The Earth Charter is a declaration of fundamental principles for building a just, sustainable, and peaceful global society.


Ed earned the award for the Solar Adaptive Exterior Wall he built by hand-for the east wall of Vintage Radio and Communication  Museum which has lowered the interior energy consumption dramatically by its seamless thermal mass recovery effect. The award also covers other, energy efficient ideas such as:

•    The Transpired Solar Air-Collector, a porous “window” panel that directly fan-heats inside space.
 

•    The Air to Air Heat Exchanger to bring in freshly heated outside air in exchange for stale air inside.
•    The Omega Rail, a strong, light weight, minimally visible overhead rapid pedestrian  transfer scheme.

All these examples  benefit society and the environment in multiple ways! The presentation was made at Ed’s Seabury residence on December 9, 2013.  Award Certificate

Vintage Radio and Communication Museum Historical Items on Display  as part of at the Connecticut Historical Society: "50 Objects/50 Stories"
May 19, 2015 - Oct 24, 201
5


The Connecticut Historical Society (CHS) surveyed the state to find 50 objects that told significant stories about the history of Connecticut. The exhibit titled:”50 Objects/50 Stories is on display from May 19 to October 24 2015. Vintage Radio and Communication Museum volunteer, Mark Heiss, made the connection with CHS and did all of the leg work to get our Tuska radio and Hart & Hegeman headphones accepted into the display.  It is prominently displayed in the center of the first room on the left of the exhibit.  It is a great display telling some great stories of CT history and we recommend attending.
