C56 - The Gambia

C56/G3SXW and C56/G3TXF

Feb 1989

Operating for seven days from Serrekunda in The Gambia, Roger (C56/G3SXW) and Nigel (C56/G3TXF) logged 14,783 QSOs on CW.

Thanks are due to Ern C53GS and XYL Anna for providing us with accommodation, excellent food and a shack, and for assisting with the C56 licences.

Equipment used was Ern's FT101ZD and a tri-bander at 25ft and G3TXF's TS-140 and HF5V vertical, plus a dipole for 80m.
