The Dar Bouazza Contest Group is born

We are proud to announce that the Dar Bouazza Contest Group (DBCG) is born. Pending our fixed installation in Dar Bouazza (scheduled by the end of 2007), our first activity will be by the end of march in the CQ-WPX SSB, from CN8MC (the ARRAM club-station in Rabat), we hope with the callsign CN5W (ANART authorization pending but expected).

The DBCG is composed by the following members
CN8PA, Mohamed: Our friend and host in Dar Bouazza and a very motivated SSB operator. Mohamed is young and learns fast (he's currently learning CW), so I 'm sure he'll become soon a "top-notch" polyvalent contester. He's also a good "ironman" and can do anything with iron or aluminium - essential for a Contest Group !
F5IQA, Jean-Luc: Although is preferred mode is SSB, Jean-Luc is a polyvalent operator. He has a great experience of both HF and VHF contesting. He is also a fine tech. A real value for the Group.
SV3SJ (F5VIH), Nico: Our Doctor ! (Nico currently works as physician for the CERN in Geneva). Nico is an excellent and polyvalent contester, an excellent "builder" and a fine cook !
F6IRF, Patrick: You have dozen of pages on my 2 blogs, to discover who I am, so I would only mention, that this group and the Dar Bouazza station is a dream that is finaly becoming the reality.
See you in many contests...
