Railways On The Air (ROTA)

Riviera ARC usually runs a special event for Railways on the Air. This is a country wide event where radio clubs set up radio stations at railways across the UK.

Recently the club has run the event in support of the Babbacombe Cliff Railway which is a funicular railway ferrying passengers down the steep cliffs to Oddicombe Beach. We were granted the special call GB4BCR for this event.

Before this Riviera ARC operated the special event at Lynton and Barnstaple Railway, Woody Bay Station using the callsign GB4LBR.

We usually create QSL cards to commemorate the event and raise awareness of the railway.
