The Burnham Beeches Radio Club and Reading And District Amateur Radio Clubs are preparing for a successful 2021 McMichael Rally, which is due to take place on Sunday 21 July 2021 at its regular venue just off the A4:
Reading Rugby Club, Holme Park Farm Lane,
Sonning Lane (B4446),
Sonning on Thames,
Talk-in should be available on 144.550 MHz (S22/V44).
The 2019 McMichael Rally was a great success but 2020 was of course another story, with the rally having to be cancelled due to Covid-19. The Rally was originally held at Sefton Park, home of the McMichael Radio company, and nowadays is jointly organised by the Burnham Beeches Radio Club and the Reading radio club, RADARC.
The rally has a large car boot area and features demonstrations by special interest groups. The Reading Rugby Club usually do us proud with free parking, sensibly priced catering – a weather-dependent BBQ, hot dogs, bacon rolls and chips are usually available as well as a wide range of hot and cold drinks including from the licensed bar. Facilities on the day will of course depend on government Covid-19 advice.
Up to date details of the rally including opening times will be available at http://www.mcmichaelrally.org.uk/
