Canvey Rally 2016 Wrap-up

South Essex Amateur Radio Society LogoSunday the 7th of February was the day of the 2016 Canvey Radio Rally at The Paddocks on Canvey Island, organised by the South Essex Amateur Radio Society.

As always, a very busy day, with early estimates indicating 500 people through the door, and long queues of eager amateurs waiting to get in when the doors opened at 10:30am.

The rally was a great opportunity to meet up with friends, socalise, bag a bargain, and get chatting. Oh, and enjoy a buttered bacon bap…

Thanks to everyone who took time to visit the Essex Ham stand, where we had the “Your Name in Morse” demo, our video highlights of 2015 playing from a Raspberry Pi Zero, our Getting Started Guides, a live display of worldwide contacts showing real-time propagation from the UK, plus some very popular mints. Thanks to Nick M0NFE and Kelly M6KFA for looking after a very busy stand with Pete M0PSX.

Most especially though, well done to hardworking team at SEARS, especially Rally Organiser Vic G6BHE. As is shown in the video, a donation was made by SEARS to the Essex Repeater Group.
