BOUVET NOVEMBER 2022 ---> The following  Press Release #4  was published  on
the DXpedition's new website (https://www.3y0j.no/) on 8 August:
  "The 3Y0J team are delighted to inform about our continued effort to acti-
vate Bouvet Island.  After cancellation of the  previous attempt  due to the
ill-fated sale of the vessel 'Braveheart'  we decided to continue the effort
and search for a suitable and affordable vessel.
  Today we announce that we have signed a contract with an expedition vessel
with a proven track record and  experienced polar crew that  will take us to
Bouvet in November 2022. The vessel is 'Marama'  and is fully booked for the
2021/2022 season. The cost is significantly reduced compared to our previous
'Braveheart' charter. With the signing of the vessel contract  we will start
fundraising immediately.  On this journey to Bouvet we have assembled a team
of 12 operators  and  we plan to spend  20 days  around Bouvet.  The QTH  at
Bouvetoya will be  Cape Fie at the South East  part of the island,  the only
feasible part where a DXpedition can safely setup the camp  on rocky ground,
we will not set camp on the glacier. We will have a wide area of  150x800 ft
to setup the camp and the antenna farm.
  Back in April 2020 we started our effort to activate Bouvetoya -  a Norwe-
gian DXCC in South Atlantic Ocean and  also known as the world's most remote
island.  In close co-operation with NPI  [Norwegian Polar Institute]  we re-
ceived  the needed permits in  September 2020  to activate Bouvetoya,  which
also included a helicopter permit.  We also together with NPI researched and
was  provided photos that  showed a beach landing was possible.  In November
2020  we were approached  by  Intrepid-DX Group  and  we joined our efforts.
After the sale of 'Braveheart'  in June we informed  Intrepid  that we would
continue our effort to activate Bouvetoya and  search for a suitable and af-
fordable vessel.  Last week we were ready  to launch the vessel news  to the
team members.  As we sent out  this information  it was leaked  to  Intrepid
group which caused Intrepid in a hurry to send out a press release  the fol-
lowing day that they would go to Bouvet.  The act of the team member came as
a big surprise to us,  the same did  the announcement from  Intrepid as they
were informed we would continue the project.
  As of today  we  still hold  the only valid  amateur  radio  team  license
specifically issued for the purpose  of activating  Bouvet (3Y0J).  With the
NPI permits, the license,  the signed vessel contract  and a  new expedition
vessel we're ready to move forward.  The team of 12 operators will fund much
of the budget but we also need the global  DX Community  to support our mis-
sion 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 mis-
sion of making 120,000 contacts or more from Bouvet in November 2022.  With-
out support there will be no activation.
  In closing, we especially wish to thank our many  Foundations,  Clubs  and
Individual donors.  Without this kind of support, operations  to the world's
rarest entities would not be possible".
The  3Y0J  team  includes  Ken LA7GIA (Co-Leader),  Rune LA7THA (Co-Leader),
Erwann LB1QI (Co-Leader),  Mike AB5EB, Axel DL6KVA, Laci HA0NAR, Bill KO7SS,
Adrian KO8SCA, Gjermund LB5GI,  Dima RA9USU  and  Sandro VE7NY;  the twelfth
operator will be announced in due course.  The Facebook group  for  the 2022
DXpedition can be found at https://www.facebook.com/groups/3093983840726129.

BOUVET 2023: CANCELLED ---> On 13 August  Paul Ewing, N6PSE  posted the fol-
lowing announcement to https://www.facebook.com/groups/3y0jbouvet2023/:
"Dear DX Community,
we  now find ourselves  the #3 team  in line  to go to  Bouvet.  This recent
development is not comfortable for us so we are now re-examining the Top Ten
most wanted DXCC entities  with a plan to redirect our efforts to an activa-
tion that will be most beneficial for everyone.
We are now closing our plans to visit Bouvet,  however we plan to activate a
different rare and much needed entity in January/February 2023.  That is now
our focus.
Watch for more updates on this exciting new project.
We wish our former 3Y0J Teammates a safe and productive journey to Bouvet.
Thank you,
The Intrepid-DX Group"
