In a joint effort, the Musée des ondes Emile Berliner (MOEB) along with the Société Québécoise de Collectionneurs de Radios Anciens (SQCRA) have created a year-long program to celebrate the anniversary of this technological feat. This presentation offers a view into the vision and goals of the celebration, as well as the work done by the people making it happen.
