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.
Club chairman John 2E0JNP here is operating on HF while Alan G2DXU keeps the log.
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 !!
