An array of escape suppressed germanium detectors has been used to study gamma-ray spectroscopy with a Ne-19 radioactive beam of almost 10(9) pps. High quality singles and coincidence spectra were observed from fusion-evaporation reactions populating nuclei with A similar to 50 and concidences with charged evaporation products were found to be effective in identifying the reaction channels. The large backgrounds from radioactivity in the target and elsewhere were subtracted using a procedure that relied on the timing of events relative to the pulsed beam. Implications for future work are discussed.
