NEWS UPDATE – Ersoy now has confirmation that his official Equatorial Guinea callsign will be 3C3W. He will collect the paperwork on Monday (Sept 26th). Note: 3C3W callsign was used by Yuris YL2GM, Kaspars YL1ZF & Girts YL2KL in 2018.   

Meanwhile, 3C/TA2OM has been busy working JA on 40m FT8 as per the photo.

[SEPTEMBER 21] – Operator Ersoy TA2OM got in touch to say that he will apply for a local callsign to avoid any confusion or doubts with regards signing 3C/TA2OM. Once that call is known we will update. 

[SEPTEMBER 20] Recently we asked if this station was legitimate. Today, an update on occurred:

I just started to be more or less to active. Also for the first time using FT8. I “opened” a small window during my working hours. The TRX is Icom IC-7300, connected to the laptop. The antenna is a Comet multi band vertical. Will stay here (Malabo, Bioko island, AF-010) for one month more, maybe two. I don’t know. I was just working all the time, make work first. I will also update my logbook.

Note: Although Turkey is part of CEPT agreement, Equatorial Guinea is not.
