3Y0Z – Bouvet 2018 is Aborted

FEBRUARY 3 @ 21:30z — During the last 72 hours we continued to experience the high winds, low clouds, fog, and rough seas that have prevented helicopter operations since our arrival at Bouvet. No improvement was predicted in the weather forecast for the next four days. Then, last night an issue developed in one of the ship’s engines. This morning the captain of the vessel declared it unsafe to continue with our project and aborted the expedition. We are now on our long voyage back to Punta Arenas. As you might imagine the team is deeply disappointed, but safe. There is already talk about rescheduling the DXpedition. [Co-leaders K0IR, K4UEE, LA6VM]

Taking a summer trip to UF6V*

Taking a break and go to visit Abkhazia (UF6V*). No amateur radio operation this time, maybe (maybe) at a later visit 🙂 This time just enjoying the sun, the Black Sea, the sub-tropical climate and friendly people.
