The Club has the use of 4 call signs on the HF bands.
The club’s primary call sign has been with the Jersey ARS since its inception in 1966, although at the time it was GC3DVC. You can hear this call on club nights and any time a club member is using the shack.
GJ2A is the call sign of the Jersey Contest Group. It is licenced for use only within major contests authorised by the RSGB. This offers your best chance of contacting Jersey especially as the group becomes more active. We aim to be on the air for CQWW SSB & CW, IOTA Contest and WPX SSB plus many others.

GJ3IT is the most recent call sign which belonged to Capt. Dick Reid, a stalwart of the club who sadly joined the Silent Keys in December 2006. The call is now used in memory of Dick for special events such as field days or contests where GJ2A is not licensed. The alternative club call GH3IT is sometimes used.
This call is licensed only for VHF communication. It is not currently in use but the club had great success many years ago, using this call sign, in the 50mhz Backpackers Trophy.
