Sands enjoyed a fabulous day out at the Rochdale QRP Convention. The journey there was incident free with fantastic views in the early morning sunrise. The Rally was very busy indeed and by midday there was very little room to move. This is a traditional rally which has no computer traders and deals mainly with radio components and lots of older amateur gear. Lunch was pie and peas and fruit pie to round it all off! We had a very profitable day and also had time to catch up with many old friends and meet many new ones. Next year the rally will be moving down the road to Halifax and although it will be at a larger venue the organizers hope to maintain the atmosphere of previous rallies.
