Riviera ARC is kicking off our season of special event stations with SOS Radio Week 2017 on the 28th January. We run this event to highlight the important work of the RNLI and the maritime emergency services. ( Coastguard and Search & Rescue helicopter crews )
We will be running from our hq at the Acorn Community Centre in Torquay starting around 10:00 hours until 16:00 hours. Special qsl cards will be available via the bureau.
At the 2016 annual general meeting former Chairman, John Perry M0JNP was awarded an
honorary life membership for his contributions to the Riviera club. John passed his M6 at the
Newton Abbot club and then passed his Intermediate & Advanced licences here at Riviera.
John has always been keen on pitching in at the various special events we run and we look
forward to seeing him at future ones. John runs a local Allstar node from his home in Paignton.
Riviera ARC took to the airwaves today to support SOS Radio Week 2016. We held the callsign GB4LBW and worked approximately 50 stations. We used 40 metres HF and 2 metres VHF and worked into England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Eire.
The team shown above include Steph G4XKH, Ian G6TEQ, Steve G7AHP, Steve G6UIM, John M0JNP and Trevor M6XON and his xyl. Not in the picture were Ian 2E0IDP and Ann M6RWJ.
Thanks for all the hard work guys, looking forward to doing it again next year.
