The Radio Society of Great Britain backed the new National Hamfest in October at the Newark Showground organized by Clive Catton, G1BSN of the Lincoln Shortwave Club.

Waters & Stanton had the largest display manned by six staff. They all agreed that the new venue was clean, light and airy with great potential for future expansion.
