Glenn - WAØVPK / ZB2WZ
CW DXpedition to Gibraltar in 1974 with Paul WA3IJR / ZB2WY (now W3FO)
Equipment : Drake R4A/T4X, Tempo-One, dipoles on hotel roof.
Photo above taken from hills west of Algeciras, Spain. The EA-to-ZB2 border had
been closed for many years, so to get to the 'Rock' we had to take a car ferry
from Algeciras to Tangiers, Morocco; clear Moroccan Customs with a car full of
ham gear; then take another ferry back to Gibraltar across the bay from Algeciras.

for many years (including the entire time that we were there).
