The Bouvet Island DXpedition 3YØZ Early 2018

The FREE DX-World Weekly Bulletin #220 October 19, 2017


DX bulletin 220 19/10/2017 By ON9CFG ON9CFG@telenet.be 

DX news Bouvet Island DXpedition –update After over 10 years of dreaming and 2 years of rigorous planning, we have turned a page. Our team is intact and ready. We have 17,000 pounds of equipment. It has been tested, sorted, inventoried and packed into our 40-foot sea container. We have discussed all conceivable contingencies, including rough seas, clouds and fog, high winds and emergencies at sea and on shore. We have studied propagation, maximized our location on the island, selected the best radio equipment, and have thought first and foremost of safety. All of this culminated when we sealed our sea container on October 9th , entered it into customs bond, placed it on a truck and watched it begin its journey to Punta Arenas, Chile. Our die has been cast. Now, a new chapter begins: one of reflection, waiting anxiously and hoping (praying) that all will go well from this point on. https://dx-world.net/3y0z-bouvet-2018/ 

NCDXF major support for KH1 Baker Island DXpedition The Northern California DX Foundation is pleased to announce it will be a major contributor to the KH1 Baker Island DXpedition planned for June 2018. Baker/Howland is #4 on the Club Log Most Wanted List now, but will be #3 after the upcoming Bouvet DXpedition. In 2016, NCDXF-supported DXpeditions activated five of the ten most-needed entities. These DXpeditions put nearly 500,000 QSOs into DXers’ logs! That year we spent $156,000 to fund these and other DXpeditions. It is possible that the Bouvet and Baker DXpeditions could add another 200,000 QSOs to that number! www.baker2018.net has details of the KH1 Baker DXpedition.

"The high speed streams associated with a recurrent positive polarity Northern hemisphere coronal hole are expected to persist for a few days. If the Bz component of the IMF turned strongly southward for prolonged periods, earth could experience Minor Storm conditions on 13 October."
"Increased geomagnetic activity expected due to a coronal hole high speed wind stream for 13 October 2017."
Earlier Spaceweather.com reported, "A hole in the Sun's atmosphere is spewing solar wind toward Earth, and this is sparking bright auroras around the poles on October 11. At the time of this alert, a G1-class geomagnetic storm is underway. NOAA forecasters estimate a 70 percent chance of continued storms at high latitudes on October12 and 13 as Earth moves deeper into the solar wind stream. Visit http://www.spaceweather.com for pictures and updated forecasts."
There were no sunspots visible on October 8 through 12, and the last new sunspot to appear was September 25, which was still visible on October 7, but not since then.

3C0L & 3C1L – Annobon & Equatorial Guinea


Resultado de imagen de 3C1L
OCTOBER 14 — SMS from Yuris: Power generator failed. 
They’re running on 15m band CW with 100W. 
That was the maximum power that the generator could handle. 
In the evening after 6 PM (local time, 
which is GMT+1) hopefully they will have mains voltage again. 
Good news – they got some tap water. Sun is frying. 
Soonest upload to Club Log could happen when they come back ti Annobon. There is no internet on the island. There are bigger challenges than internet. 
For example – electricity and water!
