National Hamfest Report   October 14th, 2010

We attended the 2nd National Hamfest at the East of England Showground in Newark, Notts on 1st & 2nd October.

This was held in the George Stephenson Exhibition Hall (pic 1) where we had the largest stand. (pic 2)

We had a special display for AOR, WiNRADiO and Flex-Radio. (pic 3)

The European representative for Flex-Radio, Klaus Lohmann, visited the Show with his wife. He is pictured testing a new Quasheng TG-UV2 dual-band transceiver outside the Hall before visiting the RSGB GB4FUN display vehicle (pic 4) Next year Klaus will bring the Flex-Radio display stand to the 2012 event.

Another visitor from Germany was Morse key maker Bob Kent, G4POY, who now makes his famous keys in that country. He is pictured with his grandson at the Show (pic 5)

Jeff Stanton said that he and his staff were very pleased to see so many regular customers had made the journey to Newark despite the recession. And support from Icom, Kenwood, Yaesu and the RSGB was vital for the success of the event.

A great show this year. Shame about the poor weather on day one but day 2 made up for that. Was good to meet Mark Jarvis on the W&S stand. See you next year.
