Hi all.

Quick question, and I know I should know this, but is it a requirement when operating in Jersey (Channel Island) to add the J to your call sign ie MJ0***/P.  I can’t remember if the RSGB have relaxed the rules and you no longer have to add the location prefix during overs. 

Any advice is always appreciated. 

Thanks

To quote from Ofcom's 'Amateur Radio Licence Guidance for Licencees':

1.12 In some cases, the call sign that is transmitted must be enhanced with a Regional Secondary Locator (“RSL”), inserted between the initial letter and the number. This is explained below, in the guidance to Clause 2(2).

2.44 Clause 2(2) of the Licence requires licensees to use an RSL. However, this does not apply to the holder of a Foundation Licence or an individual (as opposed to Club) Full Licence, when either is operating in England. The holder of a Foundation Licence or an individual Full Licence must not use an RSL when operating in England.

...so yes, you need to add the 'J' to your callsign.
