This very rare and difficult activation is set to go ahead in June 2022. A team will land on Rockall Island, more than 200 nautical miles from the West Coast of Scotland and the nearest civilisation. Their intention is to survive on the island for one week and to raise £1,000,000 for Children’s Hospice South West & The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity.
The Radio Operation
The radio operation by Nobby G0VJG (the sole Radio Operator in the Team) will take advantage of two full days during this period when it is hoped to give many of you a new IOTA.

Rockall is an uninhabitable granite islet situated in the North Atlantic Ocean. The nearest permanently inhabited place is North Uist, an island in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland, 200NM to the east.
The UK claimed Rockall on 18 September 1955 when “Two Royal Marines and a civilian naturalist, led by Royal Navy officer Lieutenant Commander Desmond Scott, raised a Union flag on the islet and cemented a plaque into the rock”.
Rockall stands at 17.15m above sea level at it’s tallest point, covering an area of just 784.3 m2.
