The following information has been received from RAFARS  and we wish them well for their planned activity……..Further info can be found at

RAF 100 CENTENARY 1 APRIL 2018 TO MAR 31 2019 .

April 1st 2018 marks the centenary of the formation of the RAF whilst coincidentally on this date RAFARS will be marking its 80th year; we would like to commemorate both in the strongest possible way.  The extent to which we can achieve this objective will depend very much on what our members can, or wish to do, in the way of participation with Council providing where possible the necessary backing.
The good news is that with Ofcom approval and the support of the RAF100 office we have now secured the ‘Special’ Special Event Station callsign GB100RAF that we would like to be on air as much as possible, at as many events and locations as can be accommodated.
