3Y0J Bouvet 2023

Bouvet Island is a cold and inhospitable place. At 54 degrees south, Bouvet Island is the most remote place on Earth.

 The Intrepid-DX Group is proud to announce a major ham radio expedition to the #2 Most Wanted DXCC Entity. We have been planning this DXpedition since our successful 2016 DXpeditions to South Sandwich and South Georgia. This DXpedition is made possible by the generous financial support of the global DX Community.

In January 2023, a team of fourteen Intrepid DXers will depart CapeTown, South Africa on the venerable RV Braveheart and embark on a 42 day voyage to Bouvet Island and back. After our ten day voyage to Bouvet, we will brave the treacherous waves and winds to make a shore landing and an arduous climb up onto the edge of the Glacier. We plan to be at Bouvet for twenty days, weather permitting. We will assemble a team of skilled and seasoned Operators who will work the pileups with passion and skill. We will make effective use of CW/SSB and Digital modes.

Each team member will contribute a minimum of $20,000 each and your donation will be spent on securing the budget of $ $764,000. Without sufficient UPFRONT support this DXpedition might not happen, any donation is appreciated! We invite all Foundation, Club and individual donations via our Donate page.

If you would like to support us, please contact Paul N6PSE or Ken LA7GIA.

Thank you for your interest in our DXpedition!
