Bouvet DXpedition 2017-2018 August 11, 2016
We are pleased to announce that our website (www.bouvetdx.org) is now active. Now, you can see more about our plans to activate the #2 DXCC “most wanted” entity. You will also meet the operating TEAM. You will recognize most, if not all the call signs as these operators have given out millions of DXpedition QSOs over the years.
We plan to be QRV on Bouvet on all available bands using the common modes with the very best antennas, radios, and amplifiers. The duration of our visit to “the most remote island on Earth” may be as long as three weeks, weather permitting of course. As with our many previous DXpeditions, we expect to make tens of thousands of QSOs. That is our #1 goal, consistent with the safety of the operating team.
Now that the website is up, we are officially beginning our fund-raising program. As with our other DXpeditions, the operating team is committed to provide one half (50%) of the DXpedition costs. We are asking DX foundations, DX clubs, individual DXers and equipment vendors to provide the remainder. We believe this arrangement is fair and equitable. As always, you have the option of using PayPal, a credit card or a personal/club check.
We appreciate you becoming our partner in very expensive under taking.
73, For the TEAM, Ralph-K0IR Bob-K4UEE Erling-LA6VM
