The RARC crew at the Battle of Britain event.

Riviera ARC ran a special event GB8BB to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain. We ran all HF bands as well as 2m & 70 cms.

Despite very poor HF propagation we mamanged to do well on VHF reaching as far as St Austell and Tiverton on 2m simplex. This was a one-off celebration of the service and sacrifices made by all those involved in the defence of our country.
