After the previous projects in Liberia (5L2MS), Benin (TY1MS) and Sierra Leone (9L5MS) the team was very honored and proud to be rewarded in 2012 for their achievements with the Yasme Excellence Award 2012.

First QSL cards were shipped around Christmas, all direct requests will be shipped before new year.

This time the team set the following goals:

  1. Work on board of the Hospitalship Africa Mercy.

  3. Raise awareness for the work of Mercy Ships and raise funds for the Mercy Ships Charity Project.

  5. Create the possibility for all HAMs to contact Congo on as much bands and modes as possible.

All donations and surplus will be used to support the Mercy Ships project.
