3Y0J: BOUVET 2022 ---> The Northern California DX Foundation (www.ncdxf.org)
is granting $100,000 to the 3Y0J Bouvet Island DXpedition planned for Novem-
ber 2022.  This is an all-time high donation  and matches the previous dona-
tion given to Bouvet projects.
"The DXpedition will be carried out by 'Amateur Radio DXpeditions', a Norwe-
gian non-profit organization  created for the purpose  of conducting DXpedi-
tions", the team wrote in their latest presse release (30 August).
"With an overall budget of $650,000  this will be the most expensive DXpedi-
tion ever. With the NCDXF donation we hope to succeed in the fundraising  as
our first payment milestone for the  vessel contract is approaching.  By end
October we will pay  30% of the  vessel contract, and  by that time  we must
have regained confidence that we can succeed financially. We critically need
upfront donations to be able to make it. While we have a solid plan, a young
and strong team, a dedicated crew and vessel 'Marama' - we need your upfront
support to go there and make 120,000 QSOs from Cape Fie at Bouvet".
Donations to the 3Y0J project  can be done  through PayPal  or  by bank wire
transfer - see http://www.3y0j.no for the details.
