The final HERC Auction was held on Saturday 29 October at the Holy Redeemer Church Hall. Unfortunately, this will be the last auction for the forseeable future as attendances are low and the profit to the club barely covers the cost of hiring the hall.
Items on sale consisted of a wide range of equipment, VHF transceivers, several HF vertical antennas, a storage ‘scope, power supplies, spectrum analyser, assorted test meters and various pieces of test equipment.
Peter G0FUU acted as auctioneer and had to withdraw several items to stop them being sold at very low prices. The items that were sold went for rather small amounts, however, those that attended seemed to thoroughly enjoy the event judging by various comments.
Thanks are due to Ron G4VBK for collecting, storing the sale items and dealing with the financial side, Phil G3MGQ and Peter G0FUU for being auctioneers (and simultaneously providing entertainment!) and to all the club members who have acted as porters over the years.
