The fourth-floor library at The American Legion National Headquarters in Indianapolis is hosting an exhibit of items from its archives that demonstrate the organization's long interest in, and association with, amateur radio. The exhibit includes articles from The American Legion Magazine, old radio equipment, booklets and fliers, and more. The Legion has been promoting the usage of amateur radio among its members and others since the 1930s. The American Legion Amateur Radio Club (TALARC) was created in 2011. Currently, membership is over 1,000 and local chapters are springing up across the country. The exhibit will be on display at least through the NEC Spring Meetings in May.
