Riviera ARC commemorates the 75th anniv of the Battle of Britain

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.

 

Airfields on the Air 2015

rafars-logoRARC will be running the AotA event again this year on the 28th/29th of March 2015 to celebrate the work & sacrifices of the Royal Air Force and to commemorate all the current and former airfields used by the Air Force and the Royal Flying Corps.

 

We will be running from our usual rendezvous point at Haldon just north of the Teignmouth golf course. G4XKH has obtained an NoV for the same special call we used last year GB4AOA.

Hopefully the weather will play nice and we can work as many stations as possible.
