“It was a great pleasure to work with Remy on getting help to get us off the ground” said Mr Richard Perks the Chairperson of SARA. “We hope that this project will provide an interesting phase for newcomers to the hobby and will eventually result in the ability for us to experiment with HF near and far and study NVIS communications across Seychelles that we think could assist with Natural Disasters etc. - Our heartfelt thanks to all that made this possible”.
