N5T Train Mobile Special Event

Bella Vista area Radio Club announces a very special operating event – the N5T Train Mobile Event on the Arkansas & Missouri Railroad excursion train! This will be the trip of a lifetime, affording BVRC members the opportunity to operate from a moving train – train mobile! Train mobiles are extremely rare and the pileups from stations wishing to work them are always large – a great operational experience!

This will be a day-long 134 mile round trip which includes a three-hour layover in historic downtown Van Buren where you can enjoy lunch in one of several local cafes, shop along Main Street, and enjoy the rich architecture of the historic downtown buildings. The trip will travel through breath-taking views of the Boston Mountains, through the quarter mile tunnel at Winslow, and over high trestles, the highest being over 125 feet from the valley floor. Join us for exciting operating and great fellowship!

Details about this extraordinary event are HERE.
