PRESS RELEASE Bouvet Island DXpedition 2018 Sept. 23, 2016 The 20-member Bouvet Island DXpedition team is happy to report that our longstanding landing permit (2007) has been updated and revised to conform to current environmental protection regulations, planned landing and helicopter operations, base camp set-up, dates of operation, and operating plans. The updated document has received signatorial approval of the Norsk Polar Institute. Our amateur radio license with the call sign 3Y0Z has also been renewed and will be used during the Bouvet DXpedition 2018. An international team of pilots has been selected to serve as an interface between the DXpedition team and the DX audience worldwide. They are your voice and will collect your feedback and information during the DXpedition and relay it to the team on Bouvet. Those pilots are: NV9L (Val) Chief Pilot HK3W (Siso) South America Pilot JA1WSX (Hiro) Asia-Oceania Pilot K2SG (Tony) North America Pilot ON9CFG (Bjorn) European Pilot ZS2I (Johan) Africa Pilot Foundations, DX clubs, corporate sponsors, and individuals have shown enthusiastic support for the Bouvet Island DXpedition.
