If you are the organiser of a radio rally and you would like me to add your event to this list or amend the details please let me know by either leaving a comment or emailing me. To email check out my call on QRZ.com. If a rally you usually attend is not on the list please let me know and I will endeavour to find out the details.

If you are outside the UK and have a list of rallies/ham fests in your country please send it to me I will be glad to publicise it here.

  3. There has been many thefts of radios this year and rallies are a good place to pass them off.

    Can I point out the website

    http://www.therigregister.com

    that lists stolen radios and serial numbers and the pda smartphone link to check 2nd hand purchases via serial number

    http://www.therigregister.com/pda.php

    Thanks.
