>  FOC publishes a quarterly magazine for its members called 'FOCUS', a
> high-quality magazine edited by Gabor, S57WJ. But this FOC75 event met
> with such huge success that we have decided to publish an extra edition,

> NEW WEB PAGE (New Voodoo Contest Group Web Site). Roger, G3SXW, sent out
> the following press release on July 29th [edited]: "The Voodoo Contest
> Group has taken part in CQ World-Wide CW Contest from West Africa each
> November for the past 19 years, operating in ten different countries. We
> have won the Multi-Operator contest six times. Thirty different operators
> have participated over the years, travelling from UK and USA.
>  In 2004 we published a book: 'Contesting in Africa: Multi-Multi on the
> Equator' describing the first ten years. It is now time to update the
> story. The timing of this is important because we have now come to the
> End of an Era, so to speak: we will no longer return to West Africa to
> take our large stock-pile of equipment out of storage for the 20th time.
> It has been donated to the Liberian Amateur Radio Association.
>  The modern form of 'book' is a web-site - so we have developed one.
> The group offers a huge vote of thanks to John Warburton, G4IRN, for
> investing so much skill, time and energy into this project. The site
> comprises offerings from many of the Contest group and tells, hopefully
> in detail but also in an entertaining way, the story of these past 19
> years. All the facts and figures are there but more importantly also the
> experiences: those long bus-journeys between countries and the fascinating
> sights along the way, visiting African villages, and every amateur radio
> aspect from managing pile-ups, to maintaining deteriorating amplifiers,
> to negotiating transmitting licences and much, much more, embellished
> with many video clips. The group has certainly learned a lot about life
> in West Africa and thoroughly enjoyed every minute, every challenge.
>  Visit <http://voodoocontestgroup.com> to join us on those amazing
> journeys, laugh with us, take part in our celebration of two decades,
> almost two sunspot cycles, of Contest DXpeditioning.
