3Y0J Dxpedition to Bouvet Island, January/February 2023

As we completed our successful VP8STI-South Sandwich and VP8SGI-South Georgia DXpeditions in 2016, we began to plan for our next Dxpedition. Our target is the Norwegian Island Bouvet. This is the #2 most wanted DXCC entity.
At this time, it gives us great pleasure to announce that we have joined forces with Intrepid Norwegian DXpeditioner Ken Opskar-LA7GIA in our quest to activate Bouvet.
Together, in January 2023, 14 men will board the Braveheart in Capetown and make the treacherous voyage to Bouvet. We will plan to spend twenty days at Bouvet and weather permitting, we plan to have 14 to 16 good days of radio activity.
This will be an arduous and expensive mission. Our budget is $764,000 USD and the 3Y0J team will fund much of this mission. We desperately need the global DX Community to support our mission and help us make this important activation of the #2 most wanted DXCC entity. It is only through this kind of support that we can achieve our mission of making 100,000 contacts or more from Bouvet.
We plan to make best use of Propagation and Modes on 10-160 meters.
We pledge to assemble the strongest team possible and to use good operating practices to optimize your ability to reach our stations. We are confident that the Braveheart crew can get us there and back safely.
In closing, we especially wish to recognize and thank the Northern California DX Foundation and the International DX Association as our premier donors. Without the support of the NCDXF and INDEXA, operations to the world's rarest entities would not be possible.
You can follow our plans from our website and the 3Y0J Facebook pages:

WARNING

Rodney Tanner
 

Those that use the Aiken-August highway to go to Augusta or to Aiken you need to find a new route. Even SC 421 that is the road that goes through the valley They are closing to replacing the bridges over Horse Creek beginning  March 31.  They have flashing bill board setup already warning travelers what is going to happen.  I wonder how many paid attention the flashing sign.

ARISS, NASA, and ESA Continue to Probe Amateur Radio Problems on ISS

Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) International Chair Frank Bauer, KA3HDO, reports that the ARISS team worked closely with NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA) this week to identify what may have caused what ARISS is calling a "radio anomaly" on January 27. The net result has been an inability to use the NA1SS ham station gear in the ISS Columbus module. For the time being, ARISS school and group contacts with crew members have been conducted using the ham station in the ISS Service Module. The radio issues came in the wake of a January 27 spacewalk, during which astronauts installed new cabling to support the commissioning of the Bartolomeo attached-payload capability mounted on the Columbus module. The job involved re-routing the antenna cabling to the ARISS radio system onboard Columbus.

Bauer said NASA, ESA, and ARISS would conduct a set of APRS (automatic packet radio system) tests to determine the operational status of the ARISS radio in Columbus through employment of three different cabling configurations. The tests would use the station's APRS capability on 145.825 MHz, with the crew periodically shutting down the radio and swapping cables. The tests were expected to wrap up by March 3. No results had been reported by March 4.

"We cannot guarantee that these troubleshooting tests will resolve the radio issue," Bauer said.

Bauer said that if the tests are unsuccessful, "a contingency task" has been green-lighted for a March 5 spacewalk (EVA). "This EVA task would return the ARISS cabling to the original configuration prior to the January 27 EVA," he explained, noting that a contingency task will only be performed if time allows.

"If you definitely hear the packet system working or are able to connect through it, let us know the date, time, and grid square of the occurrence," he added.
