BOUVET 2018 ---> The  Bouvet Island  DXpedition  team  reported  that  their
"longstanding landing permit (2007) has been updated and revised  to conform
to  current  environmental   protection  regulations,  planned  landing  and
helicopter operations, base camp set-up,  dates of operation,  and operating
plans. The updated document has received signatorial  approval of the  Norsk
Polar Institute". The amateur  radio license  with the  call sign 3Y0Z  "has
also been renewed and will be used during the Bouvet DXpedition 2018".
An international team of pilots has been selected to  serve as an  interface
between the DXpedition  team  and the  DX  audience  worldwide:  NV9L (Chief
Pilot), HK3W (South America Pilot), JA1WSX (Asia-Oceania Pilot), K2SG (North
America Pilot), ON9CFG (European Pilot), ZS2I (Africa Pilot).
"This Dxpedition is an expensive project  with team  members bearing 50%  of
its total cost. Your financial support is encouraged and welcomed to help us
make this happen.  Please see our list of donors and sponsors and learn  how
you can help on our website (www.bouvetdx.org)". [TNX K0IR]

everything", he  said. "They  even  took my  clothing  & shoes".  He has now
cancelled  "all future  DXing  activity  until  I return back to the USA and
purchase  new equipment". Tom's  "Cows  Over  the World DXpedition" included
activity as KH8/KC0W, 5W0COW, T2COW, YJ0COW and T30COW.  See Tom's bio  page
