Jersey 2019 DXpedition

In 2014 we spent a beautiful week on the Jersey island being on air 24 hours a day. Almost five years later, in 2019, we want to go to the same place to enjoy the DXperience once again.

The main DXpedition focus will be on HF operations, but this time we want to do more. We would like to activate the single SOTA summit on the island, the GJ/JE-001, then we would like to operate in 6m band, try some WSPR and much more.

Updates

23rd September 2018 I have put up this somewhat minimalistic web page for the DXpedition.

20th September 2018 It is now official, we are going to the Jersey Island! Our place is booked! On the island we will be staying at the same place like in 2014 near St. Brélade. The schedule is the same as well, we will be on air over the entire week and then on the weekend we will participate in the RSGB IOTA Contest.

Callsigns

During the DX operations we are expecting to be using our personal callsigns, be it the native Jersey callsign or the CEPT variant of home callsign. The team callsign will only be used during the RSGB IOTA Contest. This is still subject to change.

Callsign Operator Home callsign
MJ0ICD All None

MJ/OK1FIK Vláďa OK1FIK
MJ/OK1NP Honza OK1NP

Schedule

We will meet at Libor's place day before departure to pack the cars and then next day in the morning we will depart to France. The drive is some 1400km so we will arrive at St. Malo in late afternoon. We will stay overnight and then board the ferry in the morning. As soon as we reach the final destination we will put up one temporary HF station to be on air as soon as possible. Then we will continue with building the rest.
