3Y0J ---> DX World's dedicated page,  featuring the latest official informa-
tion  gathered from  the media officer (N2AJ),  the pilot stations  and  the
team, can be found on https://www.dx-world.net/3y0j-bouvet-2023/.
The team flew  from the UK  to the Falkland Islands  on 12 January,  and now
expects to set sail for Bouvet from Port Stanley  on 14 January.  The voyage
to the island could take 11-14 days, depending on weather and seas,  so they
should arrive sometime between 25 and 28 January.  "Please allow us to spend
a few days to go onshore  and  set up camp", LA7GIA says.  "In worst case we
might have to wait one week before  we attempt to go onshore". At the moment
operations might start  sometime between 27 January and  4 February, with an
anticipated stay on the island of three weeks.  It is possible  to track the
team's progress on https://share.garmin.com/3y0j.
