The Welsh radio museum
The Gwefr Heb Wifrau - Wireless in Wales, a charitable trust, is a small radio museum with a difference. With its emphasis on the history of Broadcasting in Wales, the influence of broadcasting on our national identity and the contribution of the Welsh to the development of wireless technology it is unique. We have an interesting collection of old radio equipment and books as well as educational and informative displays. The Museum is based around the collection of the late David Evan Jones and was opened just a few weeks after his death in 2008. In 2013 we were officially Accredited by CyMAL a Welsh Government Agency.
The museum is now open every Monday from 11am until 3pm during school term time and at other times by arrangement or as announced on this web site. Groups welcome, guided tours available.
The museum will be closed on Monday, August 31st It will be open again on Monday, September 7th 2015

Recently the Museum received a donation of a "His Masters Voice" vintage wind up gramophone which has no amplifier or loudspeaker, with just a sound box underneath the turntable. This produces a remarkably strong sound, but of rather poor quality.
In the 1930's a kit could be obtained to replace the sound box with an electronic pickup which would then be connected to the "Pick up" input of the domestic radio set. The museum has now acquired a "His Masters Voice" pick up number 11 and volume control device to illustrate the development of this technology at the time to give better sound quality.
