When in the early '70s, Hammond Manufacturing Company built a new plant on Guelph's Curtis Road, Fred made sure a 4,000 square foot area was reserved to house the 'Hammond Museum of Radio'. Shortly before Fred's passing in 1999, a complete new and larger facility at the Hammond Power Solutions new expansion became the current home for the Museum.
The new Museum is now home to hundreds of receivers and transmitters dating from the spark era up to and including National's first solid state HRO500. Over the years the Museum has evolved to become one of North America's premiere wireless museums.
