You may remember I sent you notification of my planned DXpedition to ZD7 St Helena over a year ago. I had to cancel my trip due to commercial fights not starting as planned.

Well, they are finally starting on 14th October 2017 and I am hoping to be on the first commercial flights to St Helena after all!

I am planning to stay for one week for this trip, and will be operating SSB and some Data (maybe even FT8!).

As before, I am staying in self-catering accommodation a couple of miles from Jamestown, on a plateau above the town with a good take-off to the W, N and E. The radios I am planning to take are FT 991 and FT891 and a Juma PA1000, with a vertical antenna and a variety of wires, dipoles and fibreglass supports.

I have setup a website at My callsign should be ZD7VDE.

On-line log with be via Clublog and QSLs via OQRS.

Many thanks and please contact me if you need more information.

Please note that it is possible the flights may be delayed and I may travel later than 14th October – see my website for more information.

All the best, Bill G0VDE
