Bouvet Island DXpedition

A team of 20 Ham Radio Operators from all over the world is currently on a boat headed to Bouvet.   They are headed there to operate for 2 weeks as 3Y0Z, so that the rest of us can get Bouvet Island in our logs.  Their ship sailed for Punta Arenas, Chile on January 19th for the 10-12 day trip to Bouvet.  You can watch their progress here,  

Visit their website at http://www.bouvetdx.org/to see the latest news of their voyage and operation and learn more about Bouvet, where they plan to operate, who the team is, how to work them, check if you are in their log, and get a QSL.  You can also follow them on Facebook by joining this group.

Good luck – hope you get them in the log!
