NEWS UPDATE

MAY 2 – Posted on QRZ.com, Helge reports the following:

 I have currently problems uploading to LoTW, expect delay until it is solved. Club Log/eQSL/etc all OK. 

APRIL 26 – by Helge, LB4MI on Jan Mayen:

I have now done several CW pileups, which is great fun! I am NOT a skilled CW operator or DXer, so I am VERY HAPPY your patience during the pileups! I seem to be able to do 100 CW QSO’s before I get too tired, so 1,5 hour in average. I will send “QRT IN xx MIN” to keep you updated, but then I am normally already starting to struggle a bit laugh If I struggle to get your call correct, it’s either a “difficult” callsign, and/or MANY other calling me on your frequency. Please QRS and repeat 2-3 times, and please repeat full callsign. I will do all I can to get your call correct in my log. All QSO’s are 100% headcopy.

APRIL 9 – JX/LB4MI is now QRV and has been active on 20m SSB. Audio recording below by IZ5CML.


 
APRIL 5 – On the scene with Helge who will soon be operational from “Tikkebu” (radio shack on Jam Mayen). Pictures credit JX/LB4MI:

MARCH 15 – DX-World has learned that another radio operator (UPDATE: now confirmed as JX7QY) may also be going to Jan Mayen this coming Summer work season. 

JANUARY 26 – Helge, LB4MI recently listed this particular callsign on the QRZ.com database. He mentions to DX-World that more info may become available in a few weeks time, and there is a chance the trip will happen. QRX..
