Herm is the smallest of the Channel Islands that is open to the public and is part of the Guernsey IOTA group of Islands so it comes under EU-114. Although EU-114 isn’t particularly rare, we are hoping that the fact that Herm itself isn’t activated very often will create interest and that people will want to work us.
The WAB square of our site is WV48 and our Maidenhead grid is IN89sl
Our DXpedition starts on Friday the 4th October when we travel to Herm by fast ferry from Weymouth with two cars and all our equipment. We will take everything to Herm by boat and then will set up our stations in the evening and the aerials the following morning. Activity will start on Saturday the 5th.
Operation from Herm will continue for four days until late on the 8th October when we will dismantle the stations ready for departing on the morning of the 9th. We hope to have three stations operating simultaneously.
