3Y0J: LATEST NEWS ---> The 2023 Bouvet Island DXpedition team leaders posted
their Press Release #10 on 3 June.
"In late April we successfully conducted a 4-day vessel inspection in Brazil
that ended with a very good result.  The inspection was carried out by a 3rd
party vessel inspector  and  covered  more than 105 checkpoints.  The vessel
inspection focused on safety equipment,  instruments,  navigation,  engines/
machinery, deck, tenders, fuel & fluids, interior, and exterior. 'Marama' is
in  very good condition  and hence  the overall feedback  is  positive.  The
vessel  went through  significant  upgrades  with regards  to machinery  and
engines in 2021 and has since been tested for years,  most lately during the
previous Antarctica season.  The inspection file resulted in a punch list of
only a few minor items to be followed up, no major findings during the 4-day
The team is  currently  working on  the final preparations  for packing  the
container scheduled  to be shipped  from Oslo in early September.  Preparing
the packing and  shipping  the container is  extremely  time  consuming  and
requires a focus on details  as our more than two years of work now is being
materialized into packing lists and  labelling the equipment.  Today we have
finally decided  our container  will be  shipped to  Port Stanley,  Falkland
Islands. In Port Stanley a local team of ham radio operators  will assist us
in receiving the container, conduct a container inspection and make sure all
is OK before the team arrive in early January. To Bouvet the team will bring
6500 kg of equipment,  which includes  several tons of  fuel  and food.  Our
contract allows for 22 days on the island,  but we have food for 30 days and
a plan for rationing should we have to stay beyond 22 days.
At this stage  all the operators  have already paid  their  full deposit  of
their individual $20,000 operator fee.  This is your insurance that  we will
do whatever we can to make this DXpedition a success. In a few weeks we will
pay our  2nd vessel deposit to 'Marama'.  Ultimately this represents  a huge
undertaking  for us financially  as well a commitment  to go  to Bouvet  and
activate  the rare  #2 DXCC  Bouvet Island.  With all  the  preparation  and
planning  over  the course  of  the last  two  years  you  can rely  on  our
commitment  and  our determination  to go onshore Bouvet  in a zodiac  seven
months from now.
Going to Bouvet  would simply not be possible  without the support  from the
vendors, clubs, foundations, and individual sponsors. June 1st, we completed
our budget update, and this shows we're still missing roughly  $100,000  out
of our $690,000 budget to be able to go to Bouvet. As we now prepare for the
next vessel deposit, we need your support to close the gap.  Please consider
supporting us by donating upfront.
You can follow  our plans from our  website (https://www.3y0j.no/)  and  the
3Y0J Facebook pages (https://www.facebook.com/groups/3093983840726129)".

CQ DX MARATHON ---> The  CQ  DX  Marathon  is  a  year-long  DX  hunt,  with

("entities") and CQ zones during the calendar year. Complete results of  the
2021 edition are on https://www.dxmarathon.com/Results/2021/Results2021.htm.
