Repeater maintenance

Riviera ARC & TARS both worked together to perform necessary maintenance on the GB3TR VHF repeater. Ian Nelson M0IDP climbed the very tall mast to help with work on the antenna.

Inter club co-operation like this makes for a much easier operation of the many repeaters around Torbay and creates a sense of community for our local hams.

Railways on the Air 2017

Riviera ARC will be participating in Railways on the Air by activating Babbacombe Cliff Railway.
We will be using GB4BCR as we have in past years and the event will be run on Saturday 23rd September.

This is a funicular railway taking holidaymakers down the steep Oddicombe Cliffs to the beach below and has been running for 90 years now.

The railway is owned and run by a community interest company set up by the Friends of Babbacombe Cliff Railway. For more info visit https://www.babbacombecliffrailway.co.uk/
