JX/LB5SH 2022 cancelled

I received a message from the operator, literally minutes ago, informing me that the planned trip to Jan Mayen is cancelled due to a lack of passengers. This is a decision I fully understand, and it’s beyond their control.

They said they will try again same time next year, and I’m already on the booking list.

I’m looking into alternatives for this year, and will consider 3A Monacco, OHØ Åland, or maybe give JW Svalbard another go. Or maybe all three of them, we’ll see what the time and finances will allow.

I’m sorry JX/LB5SH isn’t happening in 2022, but let’s keep our fingers crossed for next year. I’m a stubborn old fart so rest assured I will get there eventually.

If anyone else is interested in joining me to JX Jan Mayen in 2023, let me know. There are seats and group discounts available.

    How about OY on 6 meters? I’ve been told that all OYs face South or East making contacts with North America next to impossible. Of course, you would need a location that faces North America.

    Hi Stian
    Same here, Jan Mayen is one of these few lands I would step at least once in my life. I’m planning an icy’DXpedition for 2023. I would be interested in more info about any possible operation from JX by foreign radioamateurs.

    Best regards,


    1. Nick, good to know, and I share your feelings regarding JX. I’ll post my plans here once I know for sure, and I will gather as many operators as we have room for. Keep an eye on this blog for updates!
