Just a small point.
Although two contact names are given in the info the one you want is Mr Beeharee. Also it is very important to keep Jacky 3B8CF informed as he is very helpful to get the necessary permissions etc. Allow plenty of time for application and remember that you have to go to the Telecoms Authority in Port Loius to see Mr Beharree in person to get the licence letter and pay the fee.

I've just returned from 3B8 after two weeks enjoyable operating. Apparently I was the first person to get approval since the elections. I applied in December, about 12 weeks before our trip, and got the approval fax the day before we were due to depart. Licence fee is now 1000 rupees (about £25). Operation was from the Shandrani hotel who gave permission in advance from information I e-mailed to them. I believe I was the first station to operate from that hotel. 73s Roger, (3B8)/G4BVY
