15/01/2016:  3Y/B  BOUVET ISLAND -
Mark, ON4WW has been granted permission by the Norwegian Polar Institute to land and stay at Cape Valdivia, Bouvet Island [aka Bouvetoya] (IOTA AN-002, WWFF LAFF-044) for three months, from mid-January until mid-April 2016. This is intended to be a one-man amateur radio DXpedition, with a target of 100,000 CW, SSB and RTTY QSOs on the HF bands and daily log uploads to ClubLog, LoTW and eQSL. "Whether or not this DXpedition will take place depends on the next big hurdle: funding", Mark says. A web page providing background information and full details including the funding approach is available at: www.on4ww.be/bouvet2016.html. The email address to contact Mark with regard to the DXpedition is bouvet2016[@]telenet.be. [425 DX News]
