C5WP Gambia Operations [Press Release]
Wednesday, 01 July 2015 04:59

Press Release C5WP operations:

“not the ordinary DX-pedition but a unique merging of amateur radio and charity”

From Saturday August 15th onward Pedro ON7WP will be active from his second home “Kerr Pedro” in Buntu, The Gambia using his other callsign C5WP.  Kerr means “house of” in local Pular language.  Pedro is actively involved in a private charity organization that supports a small Village called “Buntu” inland central Gambia.  It is a remote town with no water or electricity.  During the past years Pedro and his family installed a water well, solar power, grinders for the pearl millet crop, a fuel powered kilowatt generator, a few laptops on solar power, a small school and some guest houses to accept other philanthropists.

QSL-C5WPLast year he installed a Spiderbeam antenna that greatly improved his signal.  Due to an almost non-existent noise level he can hear all the weak ones, and this year he is going to do some extra efforts for the lower bands, not easy on the savanna grounds.  Plenty of space to put antennas but no towers apart from the palm trees, and serious restrictions on any hardware that all has to be flown in by plane.

Active from Saturday evening 15 august onwards, he will focus on WARC band operation but also try some 6 meter traffic.  Plans exist to put up a delta loop for 40 meter and some verticals for 40 and 80 meters.  After a week of solar powered operations he will move to the coastal area where he will focus on low bands, having possibilities for sea-side travelling wave antennas that proved to be good last year.  End of the operations will be September 1st.  Another period op operations is planned later this year when Pedro will be driving a Nissan Patrol Jeep, to serve as local utility vehicle in Buntu, from Belgium to The Gambia with amateur radio on board.

There are currently only two permanent licenses issued in the Gambia, being C5WP and C5YK. 

As charity work comes on the first place, Pedro’s operations will be limited to his free time.  QSL will be only direct to his home address in Belgium, and the 3 Euro asked for will be awarded with a full colour QSL card showing the Buntu Village guest houses.  Payment can be included with the card and also paid using the “donate” button on the website.  The small profit goes entirely into the charity project.

Amateurs interested in operating from the Buntu village facilities are invited to contact Pedro for details.  Last year we had a visit of MD Dirk ON5OF who did some outstanding work dealing with the health of the population.  Most people never went to see a doctor in their whole life !  If you dreamed of operating from a remote African location and you are ready to bring some donations for the people or improve their life by your expertise, whatever it may be,  this might be an experience of a lifetime.
