Let’s discover the most wanted: 3Y0/B Bouvet Island
Saturday, 25 June 2016 04:57

Written by Enrico IZ5CML of HamRadioWeb

*******************

What to say about Bouvet? Just see its position on the map to understand why it is a “most wanted”!

1

It is one of the most isolated places on our planet. The closest inhabited area, the South African coast, is more than 2,500 Km away. Due to its sub Antarctic climate, it gets completely frozen in winter.

It was first discovered in 1739 and then “again” in 1808, in that for about a century no one was able to find it again and it was considered a “phantom” island (just to to give you an idea of how isolated it is…). It was claimed by the UK and Norway and at last the latter obtained the sovereignty, as a result of the first ever extended stay on the island, lasting over a month in 1927, made by the Norvegia expedition. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Cape_Circoncision_-_Bouvet_Island.jpg

In the 70s an automated weather station was installed, but only in 1996 the Norwegian Polar Institute established a research station, made with shipping containers, that is attended by scientists and researchers during the local summer. http://gfx.nrk.no/jCMI_VNxM9g6Hplm8Z…BevC6_pYnQ.jpg.

There is not much else to say; the most important event is the alleged nuclear test of 1979. Military satellites aimed at detecting nuclear explosions (we were in the middle of the cold war…) reported a likely test between Bouvet and Prince Edward Islands (ZS8). No one admitted to anything, but it was most likely a South African or Israeli test, as these two countries had then a close military collaboration and shared a civilian nuclear technology. Shortly after that, Israel became a nuclear power.

Radio operations from 3Y0/B are few and far between. They mainly consisted of brief activities by scientists or hams who were involved in such expeditions and have resulted in very few contacts.

The first one, to my knowledge, was LH4C in 1962 and there is no way of knowing the number of contacts.

3Y3CC in 1977, operated a few hours outdoor, in these conditions!

3Y5X, 1989/90, first real multinational (LA, F, JA) Dxpedition, with 50K QSO!

3Y0C

3Y0C in 2000, the late Chuck N4BQW (SK) was there for his job as a scientist and operated often, using a beam and an amplifier, making several thousands Dxers happy.

 Infine, 3Y0E, nel 2008 da parte di Petrus, ZS6GCM, anche lui per lavoro, pochi giorni di attività e pochi qso.

3Y0E

Finally, 3Y0E, in 2008 by Petrus, ZS6GCM, also there for his job, operating only a few days and making few QSO’s.

As it turns out, only one proper Dxpedition has ever took place in Bouvet and this, put together with its “pleasantness”, justifies its position among the most wanted.

(As a side note, when this article was written, the 2017 planned Dxpedition with Ralph K0IR, Bob K4UEE and Erling LA6VM had not been announced yet. Now we are looking forward to it!)
