Amateur radio

Post by Darkstar » Tue Jul 19, 2011 8:44 am

Hi, I just wondered if any forum members were Amateur radio operators (radio hams)?
My callsign is M0WOW, and i often listen for Egyptian stations but don't hear many. Does anyone know if there are any radio hams in Luxor? if so how many?

regards Den.

I certainly don't know of any here. You could try contacting ERASD

Not quite true Brian! Alfred the Christian in the souk usually has it.
