Riviera ARC is kicking off our season of special event stations with SOS Radio Week 2017 on the 28th January. We run this event to highlight the important work of the RNLI and the maritime emergency services. ( Coastguard and Search & Rescue helicopter crews )
We will be running from our hq at the Acorn Community Centre in Torquay starting around 10:00 hours until 16:00 hours. Special qsl cards will be available via the bureau.
Riviera ARC will be starting their special events for 2016 with SOS Radio Week in January.
The event is based around highlighting the work done by the maritime emergency services and the Lifeboat service.
Watch this space for more news as the event begins.
The station celebrating SOS Radio Week 2015 went very well today. Steph XKH, John GSW, Steve AHP, Steve UIM, John BXR, Ian IDP and Ann RWJ all turned up and we worked about 53 contacts as far as Northern Ireland and the Isle of Man. Much fun was had both on 40 metres and 2m.
Definitely a good showing and something to try and match or beat next year. Thanks all for turning up and enjoying the day with us.
