Jersey (GJ): 2002

The CUWS was active for two days (15-17 February) from Jersey in the Channel Islands as GJ6UW/P. Jersey counts as EU-013 for the RSGB’s Islands on the Air award scheme. Dominic (M0BLF) and Martin (G3ZAY) were operating.

We were active from a location in the centre of the island, St. Lawrance Parish, and worked on all bands from forty to ten metres, SSB. Due to the ARRL CW contest, which was on over the weekend, we did not operate any CW. Topband and eighty metre operation was also not possible, due to high winds which meant that we couldn’t get the antenna raised.

In total, 1533 QSOs were made in the forty-eight hours between Friday and Sunday afternoons.

A Bay in Jersey. Sun, sea and very few clouds.
