47DX/SJ035 - Slotoe Island
King Hans's Historic Landmark Castle Downfall Fortress Engelsborg
Welcome to the information page of 47DX/SJ035.
This page is mainly made to offer log-search, and
Slotoe will be activated in the Original Island Festival.
Slotoe is a small Island in the Nakskov Fjord about 130 km South West of Copenhagen. Highest point is 1 m above sea level. Located south of Vejloe and East of Enehoje islands.
King Hans of Denmark acquired the Island in 1508 and constructed a combined shipyard and fortress. It was named Engelsborg. It was the intention to build warships to fight against the Germans.
In 1534 the Germans conquered Engelsborg Castle and it was burned off. King Christian IV reconstructed the shipyard in 1624. Some time later it was abandoned and the local people took many of the stones and used for other buildings as well as the rebuilding of the Nykobing Castle. It has undergone several restauration projects from 1985 - 2005.
Thanks to the owner this will be a site of the DXCC team and this Island has never before been activated on 11 meter band. Stay tuned for 47DX/SJ035.
