3Y0J Bouvet Island DXpedition Update 1/31/2023

[NEWS UPDATE @ 0700z] – Team going to try to land very soon. Pictures show the current sea state and team getting ready. Wishing them safety above all else.

Ken LA7GIA tells Steve N2AJ, “We are anchored off Cape Fie. We have started the preparations for landing. Conditions are difficult, windy and rain. At early afternoon we hope the sea will be better and the wind will turn to the NW. If possible we will go onshore during the short wx window to start setting up the route to the camp. Climbing. Glacier conditions have changed. We can see the seals up on glacier.
