Although 3Y0J is by far the main Bouvet Island DXpedition, recently 3Y7GIA & 3Y7THA callsigns were added to the QRZ.com database. On mentioning this info on social media, a reply from Ken LA7GIA soon cleared up any questions people may have had:

3Y7GIA and 3Y7THA will be active from Bouvet for a VERY limited number of QSOs. By default the Norwegians have a license to Bouvet, Peter 1, Jan Mayen and Svalbard, we don’t need to apply for it , it is in the regulation. E.g I have used JW7GIA several times, and also JX7GIA. We will give more info to our pilots when 3Y7GIA and 3Y7THA will be transmitting. QSL via homecalls.

So there you have it – straight from the keyboard of the co-leader.

PS: 3Y/LB5GI & 3Y0/LB1QI also recently added to the QRZ database.
