Bouvet DXpedition 2017-2018:    Sept. 23, 2016

The 20-member Bouvet Island DXpedition team is happy to report that our longstanding landing permit (2007) has been updated and revised to conform to current environmental protection regulations, planned landing and helicopter operations, base camp set-up, dates of operation and operating plans.  The updated document has received signatorial approval of the Norsk Polar Institute.  Our amateur radio license with the call sign 3YØZ has also been renewed, and will be used during the Bouvet DXpedition,

An international team of pilots has been selected to serve as an interface between the DXpedition team and the DX audience, worldwide.  They are your voice and will collect your feedback and information during the DXpedition and relay it to the team on Bouvet.  Those pilots are:

  • NV9L (Val)              Chief Pilot
  • HK3W (Siso)           South America Pilot
  • JA1WSX (Hiro)       Asia-Oceania Pilot
  • K2SG (Tony)           North America Pilot
  • ON9CFG (Bjorn)     European Pilot
  • ZS2I (Johan)           Africa Pilot

Foundations, DX Clubs, corporate sponsors and individuals have shown enthusiastic support for the Bouvet Island DXpedition.  This DXpedition is an expensive project, with team members bearing 50% of its total cost.  Your financial support is encouraged and welcomed to help us make this happen.  Please see our list of donors and sponsors on our website, and learn how you can help:  www.bouvetdx.org
