12:00 • Building and Using the PAC12 and other Portable Antennas: John, VE3IPS (live via Zoom). The voice of experience on these interesting little antennas.

14:00 • QRP Adventures, Buildathons and Lobsters: Rex, W1REX. Live at the Hamfest! Always an entertaining and informative speaker, he has been known to have folk building projects, during his talk!

Talks last for about 40 minutes apiece, so there will be time to visit all the HamFest stands, both inside and outdoors.

• Star Admission Leaflet Prize:TBA

• RSGB Regional stand & bookstall (TBC)

• Other specialist groups such as Linux, WAB, BYLARA Shropshire and Raynet
All have stands in the main hall.

• Bring and Buy Stand :- Near main Entrance

The Bring and Buy stand is always popular. Unlike some other rallies, we charge NO BOOKING-IN FEE - so it costs you nothing to try and sell equipment, aerials etc. If your kit is sold, the organisers (Telford & DARS) simply take a 10% commission.
So you have a Win / Win arrangement for you and the buyers.
