Shefford and District Amateur Radio Society
A Bumper Summer Auction Event
First ‘Junk Sale’ Since Covid
The Shefford and District Amateur Radio Society held a bumper summer auction of radio equipment and good quality junk in June to complete their annual programme, prior to the holiday closure. Although post-Covid attendance had not yet returned to normal levels, the evening proved to be a great social and financial success as the Treasurer Owen G0PHY was to be seen with a happy grin as he totted up the welcome dividend to his club coffers!
Auctioneers Don G4LOO and David G8UOD worked hard to clear tables laden with tempting ‘goodies’, much of which were sold at bargain prices. A very nice communications receiver went for a song and an attractive selection of test equipment, including two scopes, a GDO and a pristine Heathkit signal generator, soon found new homes.
SADARS will reconvene for weekly meetings at 8 pm. on September 8th. at the Community Hall, 54-56 High Street, Shefford SG17 5AX. A complete programme of lectures, events and contest activities is planned and visitors and prospective new members will be most welcome.
For information contact the Hon. Secretary David Lloyd, G8UOD on 01234 742757 or go to their website (below) for an overview of amateur radio at SADARS.
