Riviera ARC were on air with the special event callsign for Torbay Steam Fair at the beginning of August. The event was held 3/4/5 August and RARC were set to operate on the Saturday and Sunday.
After a succesful day on Saturday 4th with almost 150 QSOs in the log, the Sunday activities were cancelled by event organisers due to the weather conditions. QSL cards will soon be available and sent to those who wish to exchange cards direct with SASE or via Bureau/eQSL. Photos of the event can be seen in the Gallery.
We are pleased to confirm that the Special Event Station callsign GB4TSF has been issued for the Torbay Steam Fair. Riviera Amateur Radio Club will be operating from the showground on Saturday 4th & Sunday 5th August.
