Worked The Gambia - C5YK
While playing around on 40m, I ran across C5YK in The Gambia. I gave him a call and was able to exchange signal reports of 57. I have a nagging feeling that he didn't copy my callsign correctly, so it may never get confirmed. According to the C5YK QRZ page, Andre is "The only resident licensed operator here in The Gambia"!
At over 4,380+ miles away, The Gambia, officially the Republic of the Gambia, is a country in West Africa that is almost entirely surrounded by Senegal with the exception of its western coastline along the Atlantic Ocean. It is the smallest country within mainland Africa. It is situated on either side of the Gambia River, the nation's namesake, which flows through the center of the Gambia and empties into the Atlantic Ocean.
