The 3YØI 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 26. Landing on the Island will be strictly dependent on weather conditions met upon arrival. ***Estimated*** launch date of 3YØI on the air might be about last days or 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.

We will sign as E51DOM/mm on way to and back from the island.

Stay tuned for further updates and cross fingers for us. History has begun!

PS. NOTE: the Team will NOT monitor DX clusters nor personal email boxes during the DXpedition.
