Railways on the air (ROTA) weekend usually takes place every year on the weekend closest to the 27th September. This date celebrates the anniversary of the first steam powered passenger railway which took place on 27th September 1825 - the first passenger train ran on a line in the North East of England from Darlington to Stockton. Bishop Auckland Amateur Radio Club coordinates this event.
Dates for ROTA 2015 - this year’s calendar is extremely packed and it is impossible to set dates for ROTA that do not clash with other ham activities. We have set the date for ROTA 2015 to the weekend of 26th - 27th September. We do hope you will be able to take part in this growing event.
The following are suggested frequencies for the event: 3.65, 7.12, 14.12.
