Kudos to the team of Pat Jones, Craig Marston and Gerry O’Hara for the restoration of a Patterson Model 308, which was awarded second place in the 2015 International Radio Restoration Contest. This annual event is sponsored by the Quebec Society for Vintage Radio Collectors. A contest dedicated to the restoration of old radios and communications apparatus.


Patterson Model 308

The Patterson Model 308 is a mid 1930’s vintage radio that was donated to the SPARC Radio Museum. It was meticulously restored to original condition for the contest, taking over a year to complete.
