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.
Riviera ARC will be taking part in the RAF Airfields on the Air special event in March 2016 to recognise the airfields both historic and current and their roles in protecting the United Kingdom. We will be operating from Little Haldon to activate RAF Haldon.
The club will be turning out despite the weather to put GB4AOA on the air.
Per Ardua Ad Astra !
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.
