The DX expedition to Bouvet Island is about to happen, but you need to wait until early 2018. But hey! It’s worth waiting for 🙂
Mark/ON4WW announced that he will not continue the planning of the one-man-expedition to Bouvet Island / 3Y/B. He was not able to raise the necessary funding for the expedition.
The plan indicates a 12 team members with 6 sets of equipment during 2 weeks. Initial operators list: UN7PCZ, SM5AQD, LA7GIA, PY2PT. Preliminary window is from 17 December 2015 to 10 January 2016. The team have an offer from Elecraft about the loaning of six sets of K3+KPA500. In addition, 80% out of all antennas for 3Y0F have been made.
This is a “one man expedition”, still uncertainty about funding and dates.
If this one takes off, it will probably be in 2016.
