70MHz DXpedition to EU-013 Jersey

The North Wakefield Radio Club (G4NOK) will be active as GJ4NOK on 4m from the 5-8th July 2013 from La Moye in Jersey, Locator IN89VE.

We will be QRV on CW, SSB and FSK441 for up to 8hrs on the 5th and 8th and 16-18 hrs on the 6th and 7th July. The site is excellent towards the UK so many of the UK operators should be able to work us on tropo.

The activity also coincides with VHF National Field Day so we are sure to be in demand.

Operators are Robert M0RCX, Mick M6MWP and myself Conrad G0RUZ.

Jersey Amateur Radio Society have very kindly given us permission to operate 4m from their very well located shack at La Moye, IN89VE.

The club has kindly been sponsored by The DX shop who are loaning us a bespoke yagi and amplifier package and HA1YA who are loaning us one of their ME4T-PRO 4m High performance transverters. Without the kind assistance from our sponsors this trip could not be made possible in the short notice we have had.

4 metres is an exciting yet relaxed band and for those that operate it, enjoy it. It is hoped to promote further usage of the band which is gaining popularity and a steady rate internationally.
