Les Minquiers Islands (eu099) will be activated by ON5HC - ON7PQ - ON4KZ - ON5DZ - ON8AZ .

The Minquiers known as "the Minkies" in local English are a group of islands and rocks, about 15 km (9.3 mi) south of Jersey.
At low tide, the rock shelf around the Minquiers has a larger surface area than Jersey itself but at high tide only a few of the main heads remain above water. The largest of these is Maîtresse, which is about 50 m (55 yd) long and 20 m (22 yd) wide and has about ten stone cottages in various states of repair;
these are the most southerly buildings in the British Isles.
There are no permanent inhabitants.
