A Trip to Havran, Home of Corporal Seyid

from to

Goncasuyu Project has been extended and will be managed annual basis at the following years. As the previous year, Team Papa is fully supporting the HF activities within the project in 2016. This year the project is going to be run with 6 stations: TC101GS, TC101GP, TC101SO, TC101GLB, TC101KT, TC101E. Among the stations TC101SO has a special importance. It is for the memory of the Corporal Seyid (Seyid Onbaşı) who has a heroic role in the Dardalelles Campaign. The station is operating at Havran, where is the home land of  Corporal Seyid. Havran is a town of Balikesir, located 46 Nmiles to Çanakkale Kilitbahir where the Historical Goncasuyu Station located.

At the weekend Nuri (TA3X) and Yucel (TA3CY) went to Havran to support the Goncasuyu Team. Our full equipped friends arrived there at March 19th early morning and joined the team. They worked on station setup and HF operations. In a short weekend over 800 QSO’s from 56 countries have been achieved.

We have been appreciated for the surprise gift by TRAC Balıkesir Branch, a miniature sculpture of Corporal Seyid for our Team museum. Branch chief Kadir (TA3AER) joined Team Papa at the following days.
