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 out 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 which we would like to be on air as much as possible, at as many events and locations as can be accommodated.
If you have any thoughts, ideas and comments relating to RAFARS possible activities, please contact RAF100@rafars.org or send to RAFARS HQ RAF Cosford.
This page will be updated as further information becomes available regarding RAFARS activities taking place in conjunction with the RAF100 event. For more information on RAF100 events, visit the MoD website by clicking on the RAF100 logo above. For a diary of confirmed RAFARS events please see the table below.
For full details of an event, see the RAF100 Website. If you wish to activate a RAFARS SES or SSES at one of these events, please contact the RAFARS Project Officer at RAF100@rafars.org
Members of RAFARS may request the use of any of the Society callsigns to operate as part of the RAF Centenary commemorations, G3RAF, G4RAF, G6RAF, G7RAF, G8RAF, G8FC, GB1RAF, VP8RAF and GB100RAF
