When I picked up a BGAN Inmarsat terminal for my upcoming adventure, I was told that the point where one used to land at Bouvet has calved away and they told me that trying to get access to Bouvet would be very dangerous if not by air. So a helicopter (or two) seems a pretty smart way of staying alive trying to activate 3Y Cheesy

This is why we need Mega DXpeds. The low budget ones cannot even maintain a web presence.  Grin Grin Grin

 I may be wrong on some details but from what I've read and heard for 160 they'll be using 1) the same wire yagi-on-ice concept that they used on Peter I and 2) a very tall vertical that was built by DXEngineering especially for Bouvet's challenges.

 Sounds like 160 will have some serious antenna artillery. Exciting days ahead. GL to all!

You are not serious, right? Are you comparing a very complex dxpedition, that had to be cancelled due to factors beyond anybody's control, with your inability to have a web page work properly?

But let me lift your spirits now. We're all waiting for your departure in the dinghy you said is all that is needed to go there. Imagine all the glory, and money you'll make.

The DxPedition has been cancelled due to severe weather & engine problems within the boat.
