3Y0I BOUVET DXPEDITION NEWS. The following was posted on the 3Y0I Web
pages, dated March 7th: "The 3Y0I Team re-assembles in Cape Town, while
operators return to South Africa. Meanwhile, the rest of the team members
who are currently in ZS, finalize the very last vessel preparations. Stay
tuned for further news coming soon."
Also posted on March 8th, on (Bouvetoya.org): "A COUPLE OF BITTER WORDS --
[edited] Important update regarding information sources regarding the 3Y0I
DXpedition. Since now on, the only website providing direct information
about our mission is (https://bouvetoya.org) our DXpedition website.
Wayne, N0UN, responsible for managing our (rebeldxgroup.com) website had
to step back due to personal reasons. He has recently been deliberately
attacked by a number of American hams using words 'scammer' and other
offensive terms and we do all agree he didn't deserve such behavior. Due
to the above, we will not update that website anymore. The updates on 3Y0I
will also be available at our Facebook pages: (facebook.com/bouvetoya.org)
and (facebook.com/rebeldxgroup) + at Twitter: (twitter.com/Bouvetoyaorg)
To all those individuals calling names and calling our project a 'scam'
we kindly remind a couple of facts.
Our expedition is covered by private funds and it's been a very indepen-
dent, personal project. Unlike other major DXpedition, for instance, 3Y0Z,
we did not receive any foundation sponsorship and WE WILL not ask nor
accept ANY. The only third party money we received up to date (less 5%
of our total budget, the entire rest is covered by private funds) come
from 100% VOLUNTARY donations of individual supporters we are very
grateful for their trust in our enterprise! Unlike those organizers, we
will not accept any unclear rules of funding DXpeditions by foundations’
board members who are participants of the same DXpeditions applying for
grants! As for us, the lack of transparency, twisted rules and sponsoring
themselves with other foundations’ and individual sponsors’ funds is
Yes, we are in Cape Town for over 4 months now, and according to our
plan, this has been a good decision making. Unlike 3Y0Z leaders, asking
for almost $1 mln donations for over 2 years of preparations, but at the
same time not being able to inspect their vessel in full in prior of
departure (which outcome we all know), we are able to examine each and
every bolt and screw at our ship and we personally helped to fix past
technical problems and we got involved in preparations to obtain full
SAMSA’s strict and difficult to pass certification by end of February.
Note: Nobody rebuked their 2 years of preparations and asking for more
and more money that as final result landed into a bin. We are being
criticized for staying and working in Cape Town for our own money, although
we do that on purpose: we want to take a closer look at the preparations
in person to make things more than twice sure we don’t miss something.
These bitter words of ours may hurt, but we feel like being deliberately
criticized and attacked on purpose just because we’ve been brave enough
to be solitude standing, independent, willing to activate top DXCC #2 and
being able to do that. Unfortunately, it’s so clear that there are other
competitive DXpeditions’ participants among those individuals who attack
us and our friends. They are generally speaking the ones who didn’t
succeed recently, and now trying to torpedo our plans, using some tricks
and methods not only among hams, but also here in South Africa. Actually,
we consider that once back to Cape Town from Bouvet, we will write a long
story about all backstage events and will address them to those rude
As bringing to a close, we fully guarantee we will NOT read all comments
like those anymore and they will all be totally ignored by the 3Y0I Team.
They bring absolutely no input to our plans and their authors may keep
their thoughts for themselves we don’t need you! Moreover, we will
continue our independent plans and projects. We devote our private time,
resources, knowledge, family time and money in something that is not their
invention and they have absolutely no rights to impact our plans. They may
feel free to get started with their own, separate DX projects nobody,
including us, will stop them, too. Good luck!
As a bottom line: if you belong to that group of individuals not wishing
us best of luck please do not call us while 3Y0I will be on the air. We
don’t need you nor your support. Your QSL card neither. We will enjoy the
trip regardless of its final outcome much more than you, and we’ll
have nothing to regret. Activating Bouvet Island our goal and sacrifice,
Currently, no dates have been announced yet, and as of print time we are
not sure if the "Atlantic Tuna" has done their sea trial yet, but we have
been watching the tracking Web sites daily. Again, the Web sites to track
the Atlantic Tuna are:

DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME (DST). Did you remember to change your clocks?
Countries in the Northern Hemisphere (most of N. American and some of
the Caribbean, except Hawaii and most of Arizona) who observe Daylight
Saving Time (DST) should have changed their clocks on Sunday, March 10th
at 2:00 AM, and should have moved their "local clocks" forward 1 hour to
3:00:00 AM local time. DST does not affect Universal Coordinated Time
(UTC), also known as Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) or simply Zulu (Z). DST
will end on Sunday, November 3rd at 2:00 AM. European countries will
switch to DST on March 31st. For the history and details about DST, as
well as an interesting map of the world (showing the countries who observe
DST), see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daylight_saving_time
ADDED NOTES: Hopefully, all amateur radio operators know not to change
their GMT/UTC/ZULU clocks. However, since most operators usually set their
computers to local time, some may have to change their settings on "some"
ham radio software (ex. logging, propagation, DXTelnet, etc..) programs.
DU, PHILIPPINES (Update). Press, N6SS, who is currently active as DU6/N6SS
from Panay Island (OC-129), near the town of Sibalom, Antique Province,
until April 17th, informs OPDX of the following update [edited]: "DU6/N6SS
attempted an 80m Single band entry in the ARRL SSB Contest. However the
over the horizon radar was S9 from as low as 3650 to 3850. Not a single
NA was even detected, totally inaudible here. Did hear a few JA calling
CQ during the contest. The radar is audible a couple hours before sunset
til after sunrise and was on continuously during nighttime contest hours
here. The radar is operational daily on 80m and I don't foresee any change
during the next contest. Consequently please revise info for CQWPX SSB
to a 40m single band entry." Activity outside of the contest will be on
160/80/40 meters using CW, FT8 and SSB. Remember, activity during the
CQWW WPX SSB Contests (March 30-31st) will now be a Single-Op/Single-Band
(40m) entry. His rig is a K3 with a KPA500 into the following antennas:
80/40m crossed Inverted Ves that serve as toploading for a 160m vertical.

WARNING (From Alex): During my DXpedition I always have a notepad and a pen
next to me; those who think to work the DXpedition from remote stations in
other continents with the intent to take advantage of it without specifying
the real prefix/homecall will be marked, logged and then I will delete any
QSO in my log from that station, even if some were lawful. I’m smart enough
to understand when a station calls remotely and properly enough not to allow
anyone to be clever at the expense of others.
If you care about your QSOs in the log, avoid using remote stations !!
