W&S 2012 Open Day Report   June 11th, 2012

A big thank you to all who came and made our 22nd Annual Open Day a big success, despite the rain! Customers, Manufacturers, Groups & Staff made it a day to remember, and was great to see so many familiar faces and some new ones too. We’ll be putting up more pictures later this week, in the meantime, here are a couple of excellent reports from LEFARS & both with some great pictures, thanks!

LEFARS Report Report

LEFARS collected their RSGB Regional Club of the Year Award, sponsored by Waters & Stanton and Jeff Stanton was full of praise:

“It was our great pleasure to welcome John & John from LEFARS to our Open Day on Sunday. Our whole motive in sponsoring both the Regional Club of the Year and now the whole National Competition is to encourage those selfless radio amateurs who do all the hard work at their local Clubs and to grow their membership. The representatives who have come along from Essex CW Club, Chelmsford ARS and now Loughton & Epping Forest ARS over the past 3 years are shining examples to us all!”

Justin, G0KSC, of InnovAntennas, gave an interesting talk on VHF and UHF antennas during our Open Day on the 3rd of June. Introduced last year, these short talks are proving very popular. Justin explained in detail, the basics of his new antenna designs and the benefits. As well as some very interesting technical detail, listeners were impressed with how quickly the ham world has recognised the benefits of the unique designs. Justin explained his professional, and expensive, software that has been used to model the antennas. It raises the  interesting question as to whether some classic designs of the past, do really achieve their claimed performances.

For our part, we are pleased to have been selected as the UK reseller for InnovAntennas and will be happy to deal with any technical questions.

On Sunday, 3rd June at Hockley from 10am – 3 pm, we have our annual Open Day. For visitors, there will be ten percent discount, right across the board on most equipment, that also includes TVs. Imagine walking away with that brand new rig or antenna at a price ONLY AVAILABLE on Sunday.

If you cannot make the trip we can take orders by phone but we may not answer as quickly as normal due to a busy shop, so be patient!
