A group of LRS members and friends drove down to Blackpool on Saturday 22nd April. On arrival they had a few beers in a local pub, followed by dinner (curry, of course) in the Sunam Restaurant. On the Sunday morning they attended the rally at the Norbreck Hotel, and drove home in the late-afternoon.


After dropping our things off at the hotel we headed to the Bispham Hotel for a few pints.

A number of LRS members attended the Norbreck (Blackpool) Rally. They travelled down the previous day and enjoyed an Indian dinner that evening, organized by Norrie GM1CNH, who reports they had an excellent curry.

Notes by Colin GM4HWO about the Rally. Also tnx for his photos below.:  

  • Good to see progress towards a normal rally
  • Attendance was down
  • Less Scottish HAMs than normal
  • Precautions taken against covid , less tables, wider spaced out
  • Main Players did not attend i.e  ICOM KENWOOD YAESU were not there
  • Fewer stands
  • Still a very enjoyable 2 days.

Norrie GM1CNH notes: Good variation of equipment and surplus.

The fifth annual Scottish Microwave Round Table, organized by the Lothians Radio Society, was held on Saturday 7th November 2015 at the Museum of Communication in Burntisland.
