2017 Microwave Channel DXpedition

In August 2017 Michael and me travelled to England. At first we did some connections from Dover. Later we travelled on to the south of England and had some nice QSOs from the area around Weymouth. After that we took the ferry to the Island of Jersey to have more qsos with the rest of our Team. It was a great pleasure to have some first QSOs again and explore the conditions on the microwave and mmWave bands over the channel.

The other group of microwave enthusiasts was Henning DF9IC and Gert DG8EB. They travelled at first to the west of Belgium and after the first successful connections they drove to the coast in north-west France with their caravan. So we were able to have some really good connections with them. Norbert DL4DTU and Hartmut DG2DWL also drove to some places in north-west France. They also had a lot of fun exploring the microwave conditions at the channel sea.

Roland DK4RC travelled together with his wife to the Island of Guernsey. There he worked with all the other groups on 10 GHz to 122 GHz and also on 660nm (Laser).

A total of 115 QSOs were carried out by the DXpedition participants. These are divided as follows into the different frequency bands and countries: Between Belgium and England, four QSOs each at 10, 24, 47 and 76 GHz; between England and France one QSO at 10 GHz, three QSOs at 24 GHz, eight QSOs at 47 and 76 GHz each, and 3 QSOs at 122 GHz; between England and Guernsey six QSOs on 10 GHz and two QSOs each on 24 and 47 GHz, between Guernsey and France five QSOs on 10 GHz, four QSOs each on 24, 47 and 76 GHz; between Jersey and France three QSOs at 10 GHz, five QSOs at 24 GHz, four QSOs at 47 GHz, five QSOs at 76 GHz, two QSOs each at 122 GHz and 660 nm; between Jersey and England seven QSOs at 10 GHz; between Guernsey and Jersey 2 QSOs each on 10, 24, 47, 76 and 122 GHz as well as a QSO on 660 nm. Furthermore, some QSOs took place within the respective DXCC countries.
