AFD 2017

Armed Forces Day

Just a heads up that Riviera ARC will be running a special event station for Armed Forces Day again this year.  This is our way of thanking the men & women past & present for their service in keeping the UK safe.

June 24th is national armed forces day and we will be running again from Little Haldon near Teignmouth. We aim to use GB8AFD and paper qsls will be available.

This year we were so lucky to have such gorgeous weather for running the RAFARS Airfields on the Air special event. Contatcts ranged from Eire, Northern Ireland and Scotland in the north and the Netherlands, Germany, Italy and Switzerland to the East.

A fantastic time was had by all both as a radio event and as a social & training opportunity. We will definitely be back again next year come rain or shine.
