April 1st 2018 marked the centenary of the formation of the RAF whilst coincidentally on this date RAFARS marked its 80th year.
With Ofcom approval and the support of the RAF100 office, RAFARS secured the Special Special Event Station callsign GB100RAF which was used extensively on the air, at many events and locations.
Members of RAFARS were able to 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
Operators who used these callsigns should be aware that all contacts will need to be logged and that QSLs will be handled by the RAFARS bureau (see below for full details)
If QSL is requested operators are to confirm QSL DIRECT via G8FC (RAFARS HQ)
