DX-World reader Michael Noertemann recently posted this on our Facebook page. We re-publish here, in a kind of Devil’s Advocate spirit, to see if others agree or disagree with his sentiments, particularly in light of the recent news about 3Y0J cancelling their plans to activate this forever rare DXCC entity. 

Cancel this ******* iceberg as a DXCC country and accept Northern Cyprus, Transnistria, South Ossetia and Donetzk People’s Republic instead for DXCC. There’s LIVE hams there who operate…and it’s much easier to visit and to operate from..and nobody will need $1M for transportation. That is crazy as history shows us: Bouvet is always a most dangerous adventure. Risk life for a LoTW entity?
