Default Milton Keynes Radio Rally 2019, Sunday August 25th

The 2019 Milton Keynes radio rally will be on Bank Holiday Sunday, August 25th.

Admission 3 including parking.

Venue:
MK Irish Centre, Manor Fields, Watling Street, Bletchley, MK2 2HX
NGR: SP885337
Site entrance co-ordinates (decimal): 51.9959, -0.7096

From the A5 roundabout, take the exit signposted for Bletchley and Fenny Stratford. If travelling from the A5, this is the second exit if Northbound and the fourth exit if Southbound. Manor Fields is 700 yards on the left, opposite Dobbie's Garden Centre and immediately after a green "Welcome to Bletchley" sign.

There will be traders / boot sellers in a large field and indoors in the hall.
Outdoor pitches (7x5m) are 15 (10 if pre-booked) and there are some indoor tables at 15 (pre-book only)

Full information here:
http://mkars.org.uk/rally

Weather forecast here:
https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/weather/forecast/gcpryfwuk

----------

And afterwards:

The National Museum of Computing (at Bletchley Park, but a fully independent museum) is only 2 miles away and is open from 1030 - 1700, well worth a visit after leaving the rally. Includes the famous working rebuilds of the WW2 Colossus (all valve electronic) and Bombe (electromechanical) computing machines, plus a very large exhibition of computers dating from 1945 to the present day - many of them working.

See http://www.tnmoc.org/ for details.

Thanks for the reminder. Went to this one last year and it was rather good! I shall be there again.

Bagged some good Tek and Heathkit items.

I expect to be on a stall indoors, selling stuff on behalf of the radio club (but not a general bring and buy). I'll list a few items in the For Sale section here, in case of interest.

Pop by and say hello!

The weather forecast looks good, a welcome change from last year...

Excellent - interested in seeing what turns up. Last year was indeed a bit wet. Fortunately it spared everyone an hour or two before it chucked on us!

I will indeed.

It's a good rally, the rain was a bit disappointing last year. Looking forward to seeing what golden finds await.
