Special Event Station GB80BOB
1st September to 28th September 2020
The Royal Air Force Amateur Radio Society (RAFARS) will be operating a Special Event Station (SES) from 1st September to 28th September 2020 to commemorate the Battle of Britain. 2020 marks the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Britain which took place between July and October 1940.
The 15th September 1940 was officially named Battle of Britain Day as it was the day when RAF Fighter Command claimed what proved to be a decisive victory over the German Luftwaffe.
Due to the prevailing circumstances Ofcom have relaxed their rules for SES’s and are allowing this call to be operated from a home QTH. This SE callsign will be allocated to RAFARS members and a list of operators and postcode locations will be displayed on the RAFARS website.
