Welcome to the Newbury
And District Amateur Radio Society (NADARS) web site
Newbury Radio Rally
Sunday 28th June 2020
We regret to inform you that the
2020 Newbury Radio Rally is CANCELLED.
This is the first time in its
33-year history that the rally has not taken place.
The COVID-19 global pandemic and its local effects in
the UK means that it is no longer possible for us to operate the rally safely
during this outbreak, especially as a large percentage of our visitors fall into
the "at risk" category, as do many of the volunteers from the Newbury Radio
Club, who organise and help man the rally.
We look forward to seeing you at the Newbury
Radio Rally again next year when we all hope to be reinvigorated and even more
excited to provide you with what has become one of the most loved and popular
rallies of its kind in the UK.
Put a note in your diary and reserve the date for Sunday 27th June 2021
