A view in the SPARC museum.

SPARC is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving radio and electronic communications artifacts and history, with an emphasis on a Canadian perspective. The society is run by members and volunteers.

We maintain a museum accessible to the public, located on the Riverview Hospital grounds in Coquitlam, B.C., Canada (just outside Vancouver). Some pictures of the museum collection are presented on the virtual tour pages.

We provide restoration and repair services for old radios. Members may also use the facilities for restoration and repair of their own equipment.

SPARC is also broadcasting audio programs over the Internet.

SPARC is a registered non-profit organization and a member of the British Columbia Museums Association.

SPARC is a museum participant in the international Radiomuseum.org.
