Unfortunately due to insufficient members available to operate the Railways On Air we had to cancel this year, hopefully we will be in a better position next year.


Its that time of year again and probably our last Special Event Station for 2018. 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 22nd Р23rd September. We do hope you will be able to come and visit or listen out for us on air with the call sign GB2MGN.
