Radio Station from the Netherlands
A team of four experienced operators
went to the island between May 5th and May 10th 2017
Team members were:
PA1AW - PA3EWP - PA9JO and PB5X
On the boat after 800 km drive, from Holland to France. Bob (PB5X) and Ron (PA3EWP) having a nap...
The weather is bad, a lot of rain and wind when we arrive at Jersey
First to the guesthouse where we will 'sleep' during the Dxpedition.
The guesthouse is in front of the harbour, it is still strange to see no water in the harbour when you walk outsite...:-) The tide is huge!
Lets go the bunker where we will make a lot of contacts.
The bunker is also the clubstation of Jersey Island. Unpack the stations we brought with us. Radio's / Antenna's / amplifiers and so on...
After putting it all up and connect the radio's we are ready to rock!!
On behalf of the 2017 team on Jersey, we like to thank the 15.000 stations that we worked. Looking forward to meet from the home Qth or from the next Dxpedition. 73
A team of six experienced operators

After a night drive to the ferry
the Dutch team arrived in MJ in the morning and started to build the station

We are glad to let you know that as a result of our search for support
the UKSMG have agreed to offer a 5 ELE TONNA as a loan to be kept in the safe hands of the Jersey Club.
We like to thank the UKSMG for this support of our strive to esthablish long term 6 meter activity from Jersey after our DXpedition leaves the island.
During the morning of July 5th the team started to take down most antenna's
as Tom GM4FDM and Gordon G3USR were about to leave with the afternoon ferry. The afternoon was well spent by the other team members getting in more qso's including another run on 6m to North America, one of the goals set for this DXpedition.
July 5th, 2010 @ 16.00 UTC the team went QRT. A few hours later the remining teammembers left the station to get a well deserved diner and good sleep to be ready for the early morning ferry to France and 800+ KM drive home
The team wishes to thank you for working our
