G4NOK were active as GJ4NOK on 4m from the 5-8th July 2013 from La Moye in Jersey, Locator IN89VE.
The Sporadic E was generally poor but we did hear, SV8YA for 30 seconds, the CT3 beacon for 2 hrs and best of all the WG2XPN beacon in FM07!
The activity also coincided with VHF National Field Day and we managed to work 50 or so stations in that but we spent most of our time on meteor scatter.

Additional Info and Links
Operators were Robert M0RCX, Mick M6MWP and myself Conrad G0RUZ.
Jersey Amateur Radio Society very kindly gave us permission to operate 4m from their very well located shack at La Moye, IN89VE. It really is an excellent site, I would like to come back with 6m and 2m and for a week so I’d better have a word with the lads. Mick was working in HB9 on 2m from the car so the site definitely works.

We decided to use the club call rather than our individual calls to promote the co-operation between the 2 clubs, both of whom are RSGB members. We hope to have an article about the trip published.
The trip was a resounding success and a real team effort.
