Radio Rally

Further information will be added with respect to the Radio Rally being organised.  

WsMRS 2017 Rally is approaching......

posted 3 Aug 2017, 04:24 by WSM RS

 Following on from the success of last year, this year's Radio Rally will be held on September 17th at the CAMPUS COMMUNITY CENTRE again.


 We will have a larger space with up to 65 tables and CONTESTS and COMPETITIONS and LECTURES throughout the day. It is our aim to make our rallies something to take-part in and not just a trade show.


 The Car Park has more than doubled in size since last year and there will be parking for traders only, separately too. 


 We hope to have the usual traders, supplying everything from the smallest component to the lastest rigs, but we urge anyone who has surplus equipment to get rid of to HAVE A STAND; it's easy, fun and a table only costs £17.00. You could be surprised how well you sell. 


 There will be a BRING AND BUY STAND where you can sell individual items with a 10% commission to pay to our Society. Towards the end of the day, any remaining items on the B & B stand may be auctioned off at bargain prices, with the sellers permission.


 A separate room upstairs is allocated for lectures and it is expected that three different talks will be on offer. Having said that if anyone is able to spare time and offer a talk which would be of interest, please let us know.


We are all quite excited and looking forward to this rally and are determined to make this event a really good day out, to which end we hope to see you all there.


We still have stands available, but they are being taken up quite fast now. Please contact me to book your table space.

The Radio Rally was a success.......

The WSMRS Radio and Electronics Rally took place on the 18th September with over 20 exhibitors, an auction sale of secondhand items, and a lecture entitled "Direction finding in Amateur Radio". A very happy atmosphere permeated the Campus Hall with over 200 visitors eagerly snapping up the bargains. The  traders all had a good day and wish to come next year. For our first indoor event we are very satisfied with the outcome and definitely plan to repeat it next year. More traders have since expressed an interest and if possible we should like the next one to be bigger, depending on availability of a second hall. We think that there is a definite need for a rally in our part of the world and the result of this bears that out.
A big "thank you" to all the club members who worked to make it a success. Hooray!

The Rally is this Sunday, all the tables are now fully booked and  the Weston super Mare Radio Society is looking forward to greeting you all at the Campus Community Centre. Unfortunately parking is now limited at the Campus due to construction work but additional free parking is available at the District Shopping Centre next to Morrisons. Just walk down the side of Boots to the Campus front entrance. Definitely see you there - should be good.

Mike M0VLN on behalf of the rally committee.

A (nother) Message from Mike M0VLN

At the Rally there will be a Homebrew Competition where you are invited to bring along your own constructed equipment for display and eventual judging. It does not matter how simple or complex your work is, it will be great to see it.
We shall be operating an auction of your items of equipment instead of a "bring and buy". All you have to do is book the item in with us on the auction stand together with a reserve price and we will offer it in the auction. We will take 10% commission off you for selling it, Simples!
At the moment we still have a few tables left, if you want one. £17.00 for a six foot table.

Cheers Mike M0VLN

     "         Rally progress update.

We have sent out trader packs to many traders and invited clubs and societies to come and represent themselves. So far we have had confirmation from organisations such as BYLARA and RAFARS. Many traders have verbally said they will attend, confirmation received to date is from Webbs Radio, Morris G1PIB, Franklin Vintage Radio. We have a total of forty tables on offer including the WSM stand and AUCTION, so if you want a stand get in touch with Mike on . At the moment we will have two talks during the event in the lecture room. Early days but coming on! Keep looking.     "
