Get the Most from the 3Y0Z Bouvet Island DXpedition with How-to Videos from DX Engineering

The 3Y0Z Bouvet Island DXpedition, scheduled to run from late January to middle the of 
February 2018 (subject to change), represents a once-in-a lifetime opportunity for Amateur 
Radio enthusiasts to snag this rarer-than-rare DXCC entity. Bouvet Island is an uninhabited
