What's on the mind of a UK ham radio operator?
2018 3Y0Z Dxpedition to Bouvet has been aborted
Unfortunately, due to severe weather, the 3Y0Z Dxpedition to Bouvet island appears to have been aborted because of bad weather in the South Atlantic. What a great shame, I for one was so looking forward to trying to get them on as many bands as possible, it would have been a really exciting time for amateur radio. However, looks like it's going to be another few years before somebody attempts to do it again. Apparently, it can cost hundreds of thousands of pounds to put one of these events together and obviously, the money has to come from somewhere.
I just feel sorry for all the people who were involved. All that hard work and money has come to absolutely nothing and it's all down to mother nature, she certainly is completely unforgiving.
