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. I have operated on 2m eme, ms and tropo from this location in 2002 and it is an excellent site with sea path to much of Europe.
A link to my 2m operation may be seen here:

We have 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.
I have advertised the dxpedition on the excellent make more miles on VHF and the 4m forum.
The posts can be seen here:
Make More Miles on VHF
The 4m Forum
Equipment will be a 7ele and full legal limit.
We have been very kindly sponsored by Linear Amp UK, The DX shop and HA1YA we will provide more details later and set up a separate page.
Without the kindness of the The DX shop , HA1YA and Jersey Amateur Radio Society this operation would not have been possible.
