3Y0Z Bouvet Island

Recommended Posts

Our trip, planned originally at the end of 2017, was cancelled at the request of the organizers of the “3YØZ” expedition. Due to their cancellation, we are now returning to the implementation of our project and preparations for our trip as a matter of urgency.

Furthermore, from the above website:

The first ever Polish expedition to the subantarctic Bouvet Island by 3Z9DX, SQ8X, SP3DOI, YU4DX and J69DS.

Ниже перевод:

Наша поездка, запланированная первоначально на конец 2017 года, была отменена по просьбе организаторов экспедиции «3YØZ». Из-за этой отмены мы сейчас возвращаемся к выполнению нашего проекта и подготовке к нашей поездке в срочном порядке.

Сегодня вышла эта коммуникация для тех, кто спонсировал экспедицию:

Press Release 2019-1
Bouvet DXpedition (3YØZ)
January 7, 2019

Subject: Options/Instructions for REFUNDS of Unused DXpedition Funds

Let me take this opportunity to thank you again for your financial support. The DXpedition team members are all extremely disappointed that we were not able to complete our mission. We were offshore Bouvet for three days and encountered extreme weather conditions. While fighting hurricane force winds, one of our vessel’s engines was over-stressed and a critical coupling failed. The ship’s Captain had no choice but to abort the DXpedition for safety reasons. It was the correct decision, but a huge disappointment after almost three years of planning.

We now have returned our sea container to the US, paid our final bills, and sold equipment to raise funds. After all this, I am happy to report we have a balance in our accounts. I am able to offer you a 48% refund of your original contribution to 3YØZ. All supporters of our DXpedition are offered the same percentage regardless of whether they are a DX Foundation, DX Club, Individual DXer or DXpedition team member. This is the only fair way to do this!

Many of you have contacted me and indicated that you DO NOT want any refund. So, I want to give everyone several options:

Option 1: I want the refund. Please use my PayPal email address. (No checks or wire transfers please). I respectfully ask that you do not take a refund IF your contribution was $30 USD or less.

Option 2: I do not want the refund; please donate my refund to the 3YØZ team. Each member of the DXpedition team has invested considerable money, time and effort to try to make this DXpedition a success.

Option 3: I do not want the refund; please donate it to the Northern California DX Foundation (NCDXF) in my name. This will help fund future DXpeditions worldwide.

Option 4: I do not want the refund; please donate it to the International DX Foundation (INDEXA) in my name. This will help fund future DXpeditions worldwide.

DEFAULT OPTION…..If you do not respond, we will divide your refund pro-rata (proportional) between the 3YØZ team, NCDXF, INDEXA and German DX Foundation (GDXF). (These are our largest financial supporters.)

Our DEADLINE for requesting Option 1-4 is March 15, 2019.
PLEASE NOTE: it is not necessary to contact me. If I do not hear from you by the deadline, I will assume the DEFAULT OPTION.

The contact email address is dxped@comcast.net

Again, we very much appreciate your support for this project. The final outcome of this ambitious project is not as we planned or hoped for, but the DXpedition team is home and is safe. We are thankful for that!

Vy 73,
3YØZ Co-leader and Chief Financial Officer
