G4FAL QSL Card 2002






V4/G4FAL and V47CD


I will be operating again this year from St Kitts in the Caribbean from Thursday 12 March to Tuesday 17 March 2009. During the trip I will be active in the RSGB Commonwealth Contest with the callsign V47CD.


The RSGB Commonwealth Contest is for British Commonwealth Countries and Mandated Territories only - see the RSGB HF Contest Website  for full details and contest rules. The contest coincides with the British Commonwealth Day. If you are eligible to participate then please call, I would love to work you. Otherwise please call outside the contest.

I will have no Internet access during the trip.
