28 Rally 2018
Another successful ‘Junction 28 Radio Rally’ was organised on Sunday June 10th by South Normanton, Alfreton and District Amateur Radio Club (SNADARC).
The good weather must have brought people out even though it is an indoor event as 40 people were queuing by 08:30 and by the time the doors opened at 10:00 it was nearer 300. With over 400 people milling about it is no wonder the sandwiches sold out twice. The committee would like to thank all the traders and visitors for their support again. With 45 stands using over 100 tables there was something for everybody from vintage to new technology, TV, SDR, microwave etc. Plenty of those hard to find components, antenna, masts, cables and connectors, chips to coils plus all the books and magazines to find out how to use them. Local and national clubs with RSGB, RAIBC and BRARS brought hams from far and wide. New this year were Sotabeams, M0CVO and hifiSSB with lots of our regulars.
Many people commented on the friendly atmosphere plus a bar and meeting areas and most got their bargains. The club managed to make a profit so guess what. We are doing it all again next year. Get it in your diary now Sunday June 9th 2019, ten minutes from M1 junction 28. If you want a table book early as some late applications were disappointed.
