The website for the 3Y0Z Bouvet DXpedition planned for early 2018 is now open. Bouvet is the second most-wanted DXCC entity. The website details the vast DXpeditioning experience of the 3Y0Z team members.
3Y0Z plans to be active on all available bands using traditional modes coupled with “the very best antennas, radios, and amplifiers.” The team’s stay on what it’s calling “the most remote island on Earth” could be as long as 3 weeks, weather permitting.
The DXpedition leaders said they hope to make tens of thousands of contacts from 3Y0Z “consistent with the safety of the operating team.” At this point, the DXpedition has officially inaugurated its fundraising effort.
A dependency of Norway, Bouvet is a subantarctic island in the South Atlantic. The last Bouvet activation was 3Y0E, during a scientific expedition over the winter of 2007-2008. — Thanks to The Daily DX
