General information
These sales have now been run by the club for several years. We apologise that our winter auction has had to be postponed until Saturday, July 12th due to circumstances beyond our control.
The auction is our major function for the year and consists of plenty of Radio & Electronic material for sale. It is open to all to buy or sell whether a club member or not. You should find everything you want to know about the auction on this page, but if you have a query, send an email as below.

In our experience the best sellers are low to medium priced useful bits of equipment, components or vintage items of collector interest. It may help if anything you have for sale is illustrated on this site, to use this facility just email us with a brief description and preferably a photo. Click to see items that will be included in the sale.

Apart from the auction itself there is the popular low value item trash & treasure stand.

For queries or to have auction items listed here, please email Simon VK2UA.
