NCDXF – $100,000 awarded to 3Y0Z Bouvet Island DXpedition
The Northern California DX Foundation is pleased to announce a contribution of $100,000 to the 3YØZ Bouvet Island DXpedition planned for January 2018. Bouvet is #2 on the ClubLog Most Wanted List. This is the largest contribution in the history of NCDXF.
In 2016, NCDXF-sponsored DXpeditions activated five of the ten most-needed entities. These DXpeditions put 457,000 QSOs into DXers’ logs. That year we spent $156,000 to fund these and other DXpeditions. The 3YØZ DXpedition to Bouvet Island early next year is likely to be one of the most expensive DXpeditions ever attempted – estimated at over $740,000. The 20 team members have already contributed just over half of this amount. www.bouvetdx.org has details of the 3Y0Z Bouvet DXpedition.
DXpeditions to rare entities like Bouvet and others in the Southern Ocean are becoming more expensive, a trend that we believe will continue.
