Zambia on 15m

Brian Otter has lived for many year in Zambia and been mostly active on CW... I was lucky to find him on a rare day of 15m action without a pile up or any interference. A huge contrast to perpetual asylum of 20m.

Brian wrote an interesting piece on Ham Radio in Zambia for the Zambia Daily Mail on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of independence.



This is a proper QSO, not the usual pile up "smash and grab", in which we reminded ourselves once again that the golden age of UK ham radio was back in the 1970s.

... thanks for a proper chat, Brian...


thin but sufficient signal
