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.
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!
