More news, no ads


The popular event, which welcomed an estimated 1,000 people from across the country, featured live amateur radio stations in contact with amateurs from all over the world using voice, Morse code and data communications.
Other highlights of the rally included demonstrations of Air Traffic Control radar systems, where it was possible to see in real time exactly what aircraft were flying over southern England.
Despite the unpredictable weather, this year’s rally proved to be a huge success, with its largest ever number of trade stands in attendance.
NADARS Chairman Jeremy Willis said: “We are one of the largest gatherings in the south of England with around a thousand visitors coming through the gates this year.
“It is a great opportunity for licenced amateurs to meet those ‘Hams’ they talk to and for old friends to meet up.”
The event, which is designed to provide the ideal venue for anyone interested in radio, electronics or computing, offers the opportunity to buy and sell everything from the smallest components used for making equipment or projects, to complete communication systems.
National societies who have previously displayed at the rally include the Royal Air Force Amateur Radio Society, Royal Naval Amateur Radio Society and the British Amateur Television Club (BATC).
NADARS has been in existence for over 50 years and meet once a month.
