3Y0I BOUVET DXPEDITION NEWS (Update/Postponed). SAD NEWS. Excerpts from
a very long press release dated March 26th, the 3Y0I team was just 70
nautical miles off Bouvet Island, and the ship was "hit by a series of
11+ meters (36+ ft) tall waves + wind exceeding 83 knots/h (approx. 160
km/h). The fierce oceanic forces swept past the upper deck, taking one
of the radars, including VSAT, VHF and HF marine antennas, off the mast
and throwing them all overboard. The hit was so hard the vessel tilted
as much as 45°." On March 27th, it was reported that all team members
and crew were safe, but "with lack of the most important navigational
tools, the captain declared it was not safe to navigate and they needed 
to go back to Cape Town to secure both all participants on the board, 
their equipment and the vessel's gear." Also from press release, the 
3Y0I team stated that the the "3Y0I Expedition is NOT cancelled ­ we 
don't give up that easily".... The "3Y0I’s events will be long discussed 
and analyzed by the Team to 'attack' the island one more time ­ as soon 
as possible ­again all marked with 'safety-first' principles." To read 
the complete Press Release #4 written by Stan, SP8S, the 3Y0I Press 
officer, see:

      looks that they are not interested in passing along the other 99%
      of QSLs batches received via IARU clubs. Many talks with IARU 2
