February 3, 2018, 2000 UTC: During the last 72 hours, we continued to experience the high winds, low clouds, fog and rough seas that have prevented helicopter operations since our arrival at Bouvet. No improvement was predicted in the weather forecast for the next four days. Then, last night, an issue developed in one of the ship’s engines.
This morning, the captain of the vessel declared it unsafe to continue with our project and aborted the DXpedition. We are now on our long voyage back to Punta Arenas. As you might imagine, the team is deeply disappointed, but safe. There is already talk about rescheduling the DXpedition,
We can only but imagine how difficult this decision must have been for the team. Lets hope they have a safe trip home…..
A few days ago the Republic of Kosovo (Z6) has been added to the DXCC List of current entities, increasing the total number of current DXCC entities to 340.
The Board of Directors of the EUDXF decided to support this new European DXCC country by means of a € 500 donation to Kosovo’s IARU Society SHRAK.
EUDXF Board Member Hans PB2T joined the Z60A team today which allows us to deliver the support directly there were it is needed most…..
To be continued….
Your annual contributions are essential for our main activity: sponsoring DX expeditions.
We can help to make the life of our treasurer Robert DL1EBV easier by paying our membership fees in time. For our German and very strict treasurer this means before the end of the first month of the new year! If you have not done so, please transfer your 25 Euro to our Bank Account: Volksbank Kleverland: IBAN: DE65 3246 0422 0205 1830 19, BIC: GENO DE D1KL L. We trust that members living in the Euro zone will use this account only, because this implies the least costs for our foundation (= more left to support DX). Those who do not live in the Euro zone may also use PayPal to email@example.com or pay in cash on the Annual General Meeting (Bad Bentheim).
