Attention PCARS DXers:
Many of you have been asking me about the Bouvet Island DXpedition. Well here’s the latest:
3Y0I BOUVET ISLAND DXPEDITION (Update, dated March 19th). The following was posted on the 3Y0I Web page [edited]: The 3Y0I DXPEDITION HAS BEGUN —
The 3Y0I Bouvet Island Expedition has officially begun. The MV Atlantic
Tuna, with the Team aboard, departed for Bouvet Island on March 19, 2019, at approx. 6:00 UTC. If everything goes well, we should reach Bouvet in 7 days around March 26th. Landing on the Island will be strictly dependent on the weather conditions met upon arrival. ***Estimated*** launch date of 3Y0I on the air might be about last days of March. This information may be subject to change (sea and weather conditions – safety first!). The Team plans to stay at the island at least for 2 weeks, with an option to extend the stay to 3-4 weeks, if weather and other factors permit.
