3Y0I BOUVET ISLAND DXPEDITION NEWS. Dom, 3Z9DX, posted the following
comment on FaceBook/eHam.net on November 4th [edited]: "After a short and
solid in-team discussion we decided that all donors, who supported our
first attempt to Bouvet in March 2019 with 199 USDs and more, will take
part in a similar lottery as we've announced recently in terms of the
2nd Bouvet's attempt. We simply feel we should honor all of our supporters
who qualify to enter the lottery.
So, each donor who donated at least 199 USDs and more until March 2019
is able to win a FREE 10 days vacation + sailing trip on our own Rebel
Catamaran with a Captain and crew among the Fiji islands. The rules are
simple and the same as the current lottery for supporters of the 2nd
Bouvet attempt. We will choose 3 donors + 1 accompanying person each,
that is 6 people in total. Dates are to be arranged with participants
The prize includes 10 days vacation and/or the sailing trip around
some amazing Fiji islands (Prize do not include participants insurances,
airfares from/to home destinations and food. This can be arranged by
our crew on request). The entire process of the prize drawing and the
winners' announcements will be live-streamed online. The prize draw will
take place in approx. 2 weeks and will be announced a couple of days
earlier. Stay tuned and already crossing fingers for the winners :-)"

SV/A, MT. ATHOS. Monk Iakovos, SV2RSG, has been active as SV2RSG/A from
the Holy Monastery of Koutloumousiou of Mount Athos. Activity has been
on mostly 20 meters at various times between 1100-1830z (some 40m). It

alternative). Back in July, OPDX was informed that per the DXCC Desk
staff, they do not yet have any documentation from Monk Iakovos, SV2RSG,
that states he is in fact active from Mount Athos. However, several
sources are reporting that Bart Jahnke, W9JJ, ARRL Radiosport and Field
Services Manager, has recently stated "operations by SV2RSG/A (if from
Mount Athos must identify '/A') are accepted by ARRL DXCC." It was verified
on Friday, November 8th, (thanks to Goose, W8AV, a Great Lakes DXCC Checker)
from the DXCC Desk that SV2RSG/A is good for DXCC. QSL via SV2RSG/A direct
