12th May 2018 saw the gang get back together again to set up the station to work in support of SOS Radio Week 2018. HF conditions were difficult before lunch but VHF was lively

John, Phill, Debs, Roy, Trevor, Steph and Big Ian are pulled together to make an enjoyable event with social interactions as well as playing radio.

Debs & Phill pulled a husband and wife double bill. running HF & VHF. Roy M6XDV, also known as the Pileup king, cracked in to try and get as many contacts as possible.

Some of our other regulars were missing due to this weekend also playing host to the Ten Tors event.

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.
