3Y0X BOUVET DXPEDITION NEWS. The QSLs for the 3Y0Z Bouvet DXpedition will
be handled by Bob, N2OO, and he will again serve as their QSL manager.
He and his South Jersey DX Association team members will assure accurate
and efficient handling of 3Y0Z QSL cards.
  WEB PAGE UPDATE (Dec. 16, 2017): "The Bouvet Island DXpedition team has
been very busy. In the last week, we�ve had Skype conference calls with
the CEO of our transportation company and with the captain of our ship.
We can report that everything we can control is under control.
  Our sea container is in Punta Arenas, and should be moving out of customs
bond or may have already done so.  We are gathering some additional last
minute supplies to take as extra baggage, including ice screws, should we
find ourselves camping on re-frozen melt areas on the glacier.  We have
finalized our shelter layouts, fuel calculations, maritime mobile antenna
plans, and have assigned some duties relating to flight and cargo staging.
The team members will all be taking a formal marine safety course before
embarking.
  Neither our transportation company nor the ship�s captain expressed any
worries or concerns over the recent seismic activity near Bouvet.
  And, yes, we are still struggling with the helicopter flying hours issue."
See their Web page at:    https://www.bouvetdx.org/news-and-updates

BEST EME DAYS. Lance, W7GJ, informs OPDX of the following: "I have just
updated my web page to show the optimum 6m EME days for the next 3 years:
          http://www.bigskyspaces.com/w7gj/BestEMEDays.txt
  Although these days were selected when the 50 MHz Degradation was at
or below 3 dB, these periods of course should also be most favorable for
2m EME. Please share this link with anyone you know planning a VHF EME
DXpedition, including any HF people interested in including EME activities
during their operations.
  MNI TNX and Happy Holidays! Best wishes for great 6m and 2m DXing in

KH1 BAKER ISLAND DXPEDITION (Press Release #3, dated December 15th).
The Dateline DX Association is pleased to announce the callsign for its
DXpedition to Baker Island in June 2018.
  The Association already has the callsign KH7Z so we will identify our
location and call as KH1/KH7Z.
  Visiting a remote DX location like Baker Island is an expensive under-
taking. Our budget is over $400,000 and 50% of this cost is being under-
written by the team members. That still leaves a large amount of fund-
raising. Do you need KH1 for an ATNO? This is the first DXpedition to
Baker and Howland Islands since 2002. The FWS ruling that allowed this
trip prevents another DXpedition for 10 years. Please help make this
happen by donating at our website <Baker2018.net>. A 50% deposit on our
vessel is due December 31, 2017, so we have an immediate need for our
2017 fundraising. Please remember that NCDXF members may direct donations
above $250 through the Northern California DX Foundation to qualify for
a tax deduction. The specific details as well as general donation in-
structions are on our website at <http://www.baker2018.net/pages/donate.html>
  Thanks for helping make this happen.
  The Dateline DX Association
  Don Greenbaum, N1DG, Tom Harrell, N4XP, and Kevin Rowett, K6TD co-leaders

  REALTIME BAND CONDITIONS WEB SITE <http://www.bandconditions.com>:
  The purpose of this experimental Web site is to provide 24-7-365 actual
  (REALTIME) band condition information to CW QRPp, QRPe and CW/SSB for
  Contesters interested in increasing their scores. It can also be of
  benefit to other Radio Amateurs to determine band conditions for Nets
  and casual QSO's. This information is NOT based on any software pre-
  dictions or any kind of satellite based readings. It is based on a
  new Ionospheric sounding method called "HF Ionospheric Interferometry"
  which operates very similarly to the PolSAR system used by NASA.

  Also, check out the VOACAP predication Web page at:
