Bouvet Island is an Antarctic Island that is rarely visited by man. It is desolate and 97% ice covered. It was formed by a volcanic eruption approximately 4000 B.C. It is a Norwegian posession and there is a scientific research station there. It will have been 10 years since the last activation and is listed as #2 on the DXCC most wanted list.

Recent DXpeditions That WTDXA Sponsored
Heard Island is located in the South Indian Ocean and is an Antarctic Island. It is 30 miles from tip to tip and has an active volcano square in the middle ! It was activated for the first time in over 20 years in March-April 2016. This was a very successful DXpedition which tallied over 75,000 QSO's.
Palmyra Atoll is a national wildlife refuge and is located about 1000 miles south of Hawaii. It was discovered by chance in 1789 and in 1802, the USS Palmyra shipwrecked there giving it its name. Palmyra Island ranked #9 on the DXCC Most Wanted List. It was activated for the first time since 2005 in January 2016 and tallied over 75,000 QSO's.
This represents one of the most complex DXpeditions in history in activating both the #3 most wanted and #8 most wanted DXCC entities, both located at or below the Antarctic Circle. This was in January-February 2016. The team faced ferocious winds and storms and threatening ice flows. The South Georgia Island team tallied nearly 84,000 QSO's and the South Sandwich Island operation tallied over 54,000 QSO's in very difficult conditions.
