Possible OT: Bouvet Island again

ab2tc
Hi all,

The 3Y0I expedition is now finally under way. I started my search for
information here:

https://dx-world.net/3y0i-bouvet-island/

I looked at the official web site, the Facebook page and the tracking page.
Alas, I can not find much information. No equipment list, no operator list,
no band plans, etc. etc. Am I missing something or are these folks extremely
secretive?

AB2TC - Knut

PS. I am guessing if they have any Elecraft equipment we would have heard
about it here.

The official webpage at

<https://bouvetoya.org/the-3yoi-dxpedition-has-begun/>

says, "the Team will NOT monitor DX clusters nor personal email boxes during the
DXpedition." So I think a lot of informations will not be displayed, only at

<https://bouvetoya.org/welcome-roaring-forties/>

Is this saying that we will have to "work" DX to get contacts where as
using spotters, DX lists, and DX Clusters is more like shooting birds in
a cage.  Oh my!

This means one will need large antennas, multiple receivers, legal limit
power and all the computer technology one can muster.    Plus a wee bit
of patience and a lot of luck.   On the other hand, I figure with my
wire antenna and 100 watts, shouldn't be much of an issue.  I'll let you
know.

None of this stops people from spotting them.     I think they are a bit
annoyed at some comments made previously.    Not to worry let us cheer them
on.     73 Doug EI2CN

Dom has at least one K3 and KPA500 in his possession at home from a prior Dxpedition (TI9). But we do not know what they are using on this one. They may be using personally owned radios as I did not see any radio manufacturers listed on their earlier (now deleted) web page.

I don't know but Dom 3Z9DX bought a K3 from me in May 2017.  I had upgraded
to an 86XX S/N and sold him my 47XX S/N.
