3Y0 - BOUVET ISLAND: From their website

 

The January-February, 2018 3Y0Z Bouvet Island DXpedition team has posted a propagation page on their website (http://www.bouvetdx.org).  It has videos showing propagation predictions for that early 2018 timeframe.  The tab for the propagation is in the header menu.  You can choose time, frequency and signal strength for your QTH.  This is based on the average sunspot numbers forecast for January, 2018.

 

60m Website: The 60m website is: www.60metersonline.com

Please send your station picture with you in it to webmaster@60metersonline.com and he will be happy to post it with the others. It’s nice to put a face with a call. On the website we have a 60m DXCC country count. It has nothing to do with the ARRL DXCC award. Go to Achievements, DX Awards and you’ll see who is on our country leader board. Feel free to send your totals to the webmaster for posting. As you work a new one, advise our webmaster to update your listing webmaster@60metersonline.com _____________________________________________________________________________
