3Y0I BOUVET DXPEDITION NEWS. Again nothing has been posted on any of the
3Y0I media Web pages during the past two weeks. It has been very quiet.
The DX community continues to be anxious for this DXpedition to take
place. Nothing else to report this week and no other details. Departure
dates are still not known. It is still a mystery...
If things change, we will send out a special bulletin. Remember, it
takes 12 days to get to Bouvet from South Africa, and they plan to stay
on the island for at least 2 weeks if the weather cooperates. The 3Y0I
DXpedition's band plan frequencies (160-6m) and modes (CW/SSB/FT8)
can be found at: https://www.rebeldxgroup.com
QSL via ClubLog's OQRS (preferred), LoTW or via 3Z9DX. For more details
and updates, we suggest to watch the following Web pages:

operators Martti/OH2BH, Nigel/G3TXF, Niko/OH2GEK and Gerben/
PG5M are currently activating Inakari Island as OH10X until

several kilometers out over the frozen seas of the Bothnian
Bay to set up camp on Inakari Island, using a Finnish abandoned
fisherman's refuge. As Inakari Island is part of the Bothnian
Bay National Park, the party needs to obey several related re-
strictions, but they have been successful in dealing with them
They will be running two stations simultaneously across 80-40-
30-20-17-15 meters, operating CW and SSB. QSL via PG5M and using
