3Y0I NEWS UPDATE Jan 2, 2019: The 3Y0I DXpedition team has identified the "Atlantic Tuna" as the vessel that will make the trip to Bouvet Island. Details here...
The DX Rebel / 3Y0I team is reported to still be in South Africa and are pre-assembling some of the antenna's in the ship's cargo hold. Speculation and rumors about the departure date, landing plans, QRV date, etc., are widespread. ONLY trust "official" sources of information - available at the 3Y0I DXpedition websites linked on the left hand upper side of this page!
The Rebel DX Group (the DXpedition's organizer) is understandably excited but are keeping their cards close. As with all major DXpeditions, funding is a never ending challenge and donations from individual hams will play an important role. Many of us are supporting this team's effort and you can help too!
