Many of us worked TZ5A in Mali during the 2005 CQWW CW DX contest.  This
will be a great opportunity to learn first-hand from Roger about the
latest big-time multi-multi adventure in a long list of contesting
operations from exotic locations that goes back to the late 1980's.
Many photos and video also illustrate West African village life and the
wonderful hospitality extended to the ten-man team of contesters by the
local residents.

In addition to authoring two recent books, "Up Two - Adventures of a
DXpeditioner" and "Contesting in Africa - Multi-Multi on the Equator",
Roger is an active ham from his home QTH near London, has served as
president of the First Class CW Operators' Club, and has served as
International Advisor to the CQWW Committee.  Roger was inducted as the
30th member of the CQ Contest Hall of Fame in 1998.  

YCCC is proud to present Roger in advance of his traveling to the 2006
Dayton Hamvention.  If you plan to attend on May 16th (spouses and
