Bouvet Island

Mark Demeuleneere, ON4WW, has been granted permission by the Norwegian Polar Institute to land and reside on Bouvet Island during the mid-January until mid-April 2016 time frame.

This will be a ham radio DXpedition with the sole purpose of providing

worldwide contacts with Bouvet Island, currently ranked #3 on the different DXCC Most Wanted Lists.

This will be a 3 month DXpedition carried out by one person with a target to make 100,000 QSOs on CW, SSB and RTTY on all HF bands. (Note: Bouvet will move up to #2 after Navassa has been activated in 2015).

Whether or not this DXpedition will take place depends on the next big

hurdle, funding. An interesting Web page has been designed which provides more background information and full details with some great pictures, as well as details on his funding approach at:
