QSL FROM SPECIAL EVENT STATION “ZS9V ON ROBBEN ISLAND”, SOUTH AFRICA

Robben Island is the place where Nobel Laureate and former President of South Africa Nelson Mandela was imprisoned there for 18 years he served behind bars before the fall of apartheid. During The International Lighthouse and Lightship Weekend (= is an annual 48 hour amateur radio event held on the third full weekend of August each year) I heard the special Lighthouse Station ZS9V from there. The reception was difficult. I heard them only on Saturday morning with a weak signal: ZS9V - Robben Isl.mp3. I'm quite happy with the QSL Card from that special Island.
