Doors open at 10:00 hrs and the event is expected to finish at around 13:00 hrs. (All times clock times.) Please note that we plan to adhere strictly to the opening time of 10:00 am, subject to weather. This is to ensure that people can purchase the many bargains on offer in the fairest way possible.
In 2011, the furthest travelled visitor was Ian VK3XIB from near Melbourne in Australia, a distance of 16970 km by the short path - a record unlikely ever to be broken. Nevertheless, we hope someone will try. However, wherever you come from, you can be sure of a warm welcome and a chance to meet friends you have worked, old and new. If you are new to amateur radio, you can join CATS at the Bazaar and receive help from members of CATS and other local societies on how to get into the hobby we all love - Amateur Radio.
