With only 18 people living permanently on the island, "Hallig Nordstrandischmoor" is one of the smallest German Islands in the North-Sea. About 40 times a year the sea-water covers the island completely, except for the five houses on the four small hills (Warften), which are left to be seen above the sea.

DK1IP and DL9HO activated "Hallig Nordstrandischmoor" to give a chance to the radio-amateur-communitiy to work this island, valid for the RSGB IOTA program (IOTA EU-042) and the German Island Award (N-25).

Due to the poor propagation during our IOTA-Expedition (heavy Aurora-Activities and Mögel-Dellinger-Effect) we only managed 1080 QSOs with hams throughout different continents. Most of these contacts were made on 20m (DL9HO) and 40m (DK1IP), several on 15m and 80m as well.

We are planning to repeat this activity in the forecoming time and hope to see you further down the log!
