Christopher Bragg Auctions

Radio auction for collector buffs

Brought up on a farm about 50 kilometres north of Wagga Wagga, radio collector Alan Higman is a country boy at heart with a practical nature.

“The first valve radio I collected I discovered as a youngster in a back lane in Wagga Wagga because the owners were throwing out,” he says. “It was a 1937 Switchon – a brand I have not seen since – still working and went ahead and restored it.”

Alan first became interested in collecting radios when he befriended a ham radio operator at school and listened to other amateur operators from all parts of the world.
