Bouvet Island DXpedition 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 3Y0Z has also
been renewed and will be used during the Bouvet DXpedition 2018.

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 and learn how you
