Despite atrocious weather conditions the RARC team turned out to put on the Airfiields on the Air event yet again. Although 40m was very busy with a lot of contest traffic, we still managed to put in a large number of qso’s. We reached as far as Switzerland in one direction and the Irish Republic in the other.
Thanks are due to John M6GSW, Steve G7AHP, Tom M0TGZ, Ian G6TEQ, Mike M0LOB, Ian M6IDP, Ann M6RWJ, Lobster M6HFD and Alan G2DXU. We could not have pulled this off without your help & support. Pics are on the gallery.
Well done Team RARC.

Riviera ARC recently had a video night where we watched “The Secret Wireless War“. This went down very well with members asking whether we can have another. If people are keen we could possibly consider making this a regular fixture.
Riviera ARC is delighted to learn that we have been named as Club of the Year for Region 11,
(South West & Channel Islands) in the Small Club category. Well done everyone for working hard together to get us this award.
We would also like to offer our warmest congratulations to Poldhu ARC in Cornwall who won in the main category.
RARC will be running the AotA event again this year on the 28th/29th of March 2015 to celebrate the work & sacrifices of the Royal Air Force and to commemorate all the current and former airfields used by the Air Force and the Royal Flying Corps.
We will be running from our usual rendezvous point at Haldon just north of the Teignmouth golf course. G4XKH has obtained an NoV for the same special call we used last year GB4AOA.
Hopefully the weather will play nice and we can work as many stations as possible.
