With this Final Press Release the team want to express gratitude to all our sponsors that generously supported our Bouvetøya adventure. Without the upfront support this trip would simply not be possible.
We announce today that we have decided to refund $50,000 of the donations to the DX community.
One month before we departed Falkland Island, we informed the DX community we had financed our budget. We have continued to receive a great amount of financial support up until now. This way we can reduce the $25,000 operator fee, and at the same time we are able to refund the DX community.
We have decided to refund our Lead Sponsor NCDXF with $40,000. Initially NCDXF supported the team with their largest grant ever $100,000. It is with pleasure we can give back as much as 40% of the donation to them.
We will distribute the rest of the refund among our major club sponsors who all stepped up and donated generously to this DXpedition. We will refund the following clubs and organizations with apprx. 10% of their donation GDXF $3,000, INDEXA $1,000, ARRL Colvin Award $500, NIDXA $500, FEDXP $500, TCDXA $500, SEDXC $500, LADX group $300, Clipperton $300, South Carolina $300, Chiltern DX Club $300, IOTA $300, Delta DXA $300
