Ham radio couple in Ghana

Jeff, W7JVN, along with his wife Beverly, WB7NLY have been called to a church mission in Ghana, West Africa and will be active as 9G5AC.

Jeff thought it would be nice to be on a DX expedition here so he brought his FT-857 and have set up a humble little station at their house.

He has a 20 metre inverted V dipole antenna mounted on a 30 foot bamboo pole. He will use a 12 volt battery off his generator for power for the radio.

Jeff will get on 20 and 15 metre SSB whenever he gets a chance and when the bands are open. Jeff and his wife will be located in Asamankese, Ghana, (which is in the bush) for about 16 months.
