Hack Green hanger sale 18th October
 
Just checked the Hack Green website this morning & noticed they have rearranged the previously cancelled Spring hanger sale for Sunday 18th of October, but no start time is given :shrug:;

I really do hope this rally goes ahead, but have a feeling it will be blocked what with recent new rule changes.
I hope I'm so wrong!

Looking please for information from anyone that has been to previous such Hack Green events. What sort of items are available. Mostly military? Or domestic sets too? Many thanks.

Mostly communications and ex-military stuff, lots of boxes of radio and electronic bits and pieces, tools, etc. Some stalls selling military type clothing and militaria items, not usually that many domestic radios.

You usually also have traders with stalls with new components, RF connectors, second hand PC/laptops, modern consumer electronic items (that you would find at car boot sale).

The bunker has a stall too (next to the display case with the Anita calculator) with surplus stuff & refreshments.
Also regular is the Stoke amateur radio stall, which can have anything from old test gear, military & amateur radios, bits of old computers and boxes of parts from scrapped equipment.

I've only seen a couple of stalls with domestic valve radios in the eight years I've been going, you sometimes have shed clearance stalls that usually have stuff we are interested in.

They were supposed to be having two sales this year, one for the surplus electronic/radio stuff & another with the militaria stuff, or course neither went ahead.

Note: the facilitates such as the cafe in the bunker are only available if you pay to go round the bunker.

Not unexpected but this sale has been cancelled again, was still shown on Friday as happening but I checked again just now and it's cancelled.

Yes, it's shame, but I think we have to forget the rally scene for a little while yet...
