Canvey Rally 2020 featured on BBC Essex

The 2020 Canvey Radio Rally took place on Sunday the 2nd of February at the Cornelius Vermuyden School on Canvey Island.

The event was very well attended, with a good mix of traders, clubs and enthusiasts looking to pick up a bargain. Well done to the South Essex Amateur Radio Society for once again hosting the largest radio rally in Essex.

This year’s event was attended by the BBC Essex Quest team. Each week, their team drives across Essex searching for clues to mystery locations in their BBC radio car, and they’ve featured amateur events before, including the Air Ambulances On The Air, and JOTA at Belchamps. For the rally, the BBC team interviewed Tony G0JYI from SEARS and Andy G0IBN from the Essex CW Club. Here is the off-air recording from the BBC, mixed with some video captured by Essex Ham on the day:
