47DX/NI - Nyholm Island





Welcome to the information page of 47DX/NI.




This page is mainly made to offer log-search, and
general information.



Copenhagen, the Capital of Denmark, is situated on several islands. The two biggest islands are Sealand and Amager islands. In the narrow gap between these 2 islands we find 7-8-10 smaller islands that we plan to activate in the future.


These islands are all part of the older Copenhagen, some man-made, others manually made bigger. Several of them have hosted the Danish Navy’s HQ and is together named Holmen.

Back in time, Denmarks fleet was built just outside (the old part of) Copenhagen, on Holmen islets. Holmen islets consist of 4-5 islands, among them Nyholm which we activate today.

Today Nyholm still holds part of the danish navy.

What is Nyholm isl. valid for?
Nyholm is close to Sealand island (Sjaelland Archipilago - EU-029) and is included in the EU-O29 group of lslands. Therefore Nyholm also qualify for IOTA EU-029.
Despite Nyholm is man-made, created by sunken ships, mud and garbage, and also could be considered an IWI-island due to its location in the narrow strait, one could argue “not valid”. I will let it be up to each and every person that works me to decide what this contact is valid for... As a conclusion, I will TX from an island.

The activation is planned between 11:00 AM and 3:00 PM.

I look forward to work you.

Greetings
