Railways On The Air Reepham & Whitwell Station 2019
Its that time of year again and probably our last Special Event Station for 2019, however we will be at Reepham & Whitwell station on the 9th – 10th November for the remembrance day. The annual Railways On The Air (ROTA) weekend usually takes place on the weekend closest to the 27th September a date which celebrates the anniversary of the first steam powered passenger railway which took place on on that day in 1825.
The first passenger train ran on a line in the North East of England from Darlington to Stockton and the Bishop Auckland Amateur Radio Club coordinates this event.
The Bittern DXers will be at Reepham and Whitwell Station the weekend of 21st – 22nd September 2019. We do hope you will be able to come and visit or listen out for us on air with the call sign GB2MGN.
