The RARC crew at the Battle of Britain event.

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.

Riviera ARC took part in National Armed Forces day on 27th June 2015 at the Haldon rendezvous site. John 2E0JNP put up the Carolina Window atenna at around 35 feet and G7AHP set up the VHF antenna.

We worked stations as far away as Italy and the Czech Republic as well as numerous UK stations. There are numerous images from the day on the Gallery.DSCF0631

The weather was very kind to us with bright sunshine and little wind. RARC would like to offer our thanks and congratulations to Ian, Ann and Lobster for keeping the team supplied with teas, coffees and hot food.

An outstanding team effort from everyone made for a great special event which I look forward to doing again next year. Well done Team RARC !!
