3Y0J Dxpedition to Bouvet Island

As we completed our successful VP8STI-South Sandwich and VP8SGI-South Georgia DXpeditions in 2016, we began to plan for our next Dxpedition. Our target is the Norwegian Island Bouvet. This is the #2 most wanted DXCC entity.

At this time, it gives us great pleasure to announce that we have joined forces with Intrepid Norwegian DXpeditioner Ken Opskar-LA7GIA in our quest to activate Bouvet.

Together, in January 2023, 14 men will board the Braveheart in Capetown and make the treacherous voyage to Bouvet. We will plan to spend twenty days at Bouvet and weather permitting, we plan to have 14 to 16 good days of radio activity.

This announcement is certainly a BIG one and perhaps will kickstart an avalanche of DXpeditions that have virtually disappeared since the pandemic. Lots of time to prepare, and that’s a good thing because it will provide plenty of time for some sorely needed DX hope to really sink-in.

Donate early, donate often. Stay tuned.
