Please Note.
This page is continuously updated as
AOTA ACTIVATIONS are received.


An ongoing RAFARS event, with operator certification based upon contacting AOTA activations running annually 1st January to 31st December. In addition to ad hoc activations, the aniversary weekend of RAFARS formation (the first weekend of April each year), will be a specific RAFARS AOTA weekend. During 2017 the activity will be from Saturday 25th March untill Sunday 9th April, covering three week ends / two full weeks, hopefully allowing once again more stations to be active during that period. We hope that RAF Halton and RAF Cosford and possibly RAF Cranwell, will be active during this period.
To 'Activate' in a radio sense, current or former RAF (Ministry of Defence or its predecessors) stations, airfields, radio/radar sites, landing strips, including landing waters; located in Great Britain & Northern Ireland, dating from 1914 to current times.
Single operator based, but who may be supported by a club or society's portable operations. Only ATC Squadrons who are actively encouraged to take part in AOTA, and other youth groups may enter as a multi operator group.
All current licensed bands with "Centre of Activity" to be around the RAFARS calling frequencies with Voice and Morse modes only. Digital modes will be considered in the future.

Also we need to remember the ATC Cadets are haveing an exercise called 'Blue Ham' in conjunction with amateurs during the period of 18th, 19th, 25th, 26th March 2017 on 60 mtrs (5 Mhz) band. Although many will not be on air stations we do need to encourage these young people. So if you hear a such a station give them a call. ....(Repeated from index page)

The the following Airfield 'Activations' for 'RAFARS AOTA', have been notified to the AOTA team.

Please note the activating stations below in colour Purple, are ex or current RFC/RAF Service Stations with a permanent SES callsign that may be working on many days in the year.
