Yep, Telford is too far for me too really. Might, just might go to Andover tomorrow, still not sure yet, it's been a busy weekend so far and I'm quite tired. BBQ and too much drink already......

Anybody going to Hackgreen Hangar Sale in Cheshire tomorrow 30th? https://www.hackgreen.co.uk/events/hangar-sale-autumn

At least we get an extra hour in bed tonight.

I went to the HackGreen hamfest today.

Small, in an MoD "farm shed", the usual traders I see were absent (probably too far for them). Not much new stuff, lots of old stuff, so relatively interesting.

I picked up three Philips ZM1050 decatron-like indicators


and an APC UPS, shown with a working front panel .

The adjacent "Secret Bunker" museum was well worth a visit. It would have been one of the regional centres of government if WW3 had started. Now it contains some interesting exhibits I haven't seen elsewhere e.g. Russian equipment, missile warheads and payloads and a WE177 400kt bomb. The WE177 and payloads were both surprisingly small, and I can see how the concept of a man-portable nuke-in-a-backpack is technically feasible.

Nice acquisition !
I didn't know you could get them with numeric-shaped electrodes, mine are all just pins.

I've only been to Hack Green once but it was a lot of fun - i stayed overnight in my tent and enjoyed a late night whisky-fueled chat. Don't know if they still do that but yeah, the site is interesting even though the rally is quite small.

Squarewave:
Hack Green is too far for me, but because of how far away it is, I use their web SDR for testing purposes.
