Qsl Manager for all QSL = ON7YK

  • Be aware that some qsl-cards are lost or even stolen by post employees. When you send a qsl card to me NEVER use your call sign are my call sign on the letter . Just put my adress on the S.A.S.E . Also close the letter with a tape . ----- I don't send twice my qsl card when the letter is lost in that case.

To all ham's :

I make a collection of all Gambian call sign , used since the beginning of ham radio activity in The Gambia.
Started with the call signs : ZD3.. ( old Gambian dxcc ) and later with C5...

Are you the owner of a real Gambian callsign, would it be possible to send me a digital copy of the front of the QSL card, or by normal post is also possible to my qsl manager,see adress below.

My sincere thanks to all the ham's for their help.

Owner of the first C5 6M EME QSO !!
