NCDXF Donates $100,000 USD to the 2023 3Y0J DXpedition

The Northern California DX Foundation is pleased to announce it will be a major contributor ($100,000) to the Intrepid DX Group’s 3Y0J Bouvet Island DXpedition planned for January/February 2023.  Bouvet Island is currently #2 Most Wanted globally on the Club Log list.

NCDXF-supported DXpeditions have activated many of the ten most-needed entities.  NCDXF-funded DXpeditions during Cycle 24 have put well over 1 million QSOs into DXers’ logs!  We expect to continue this mission for Cycle 25 and beyond. has details of the 2023 Bouvet Island DXpedition.

DXpeditions to rare entities like Bouvet Island that are so remote are becoming more expensive and difficult to reach, a trend that we believe will continue.  In the last three years, two DXpeditions have attempted activation of Bouvet, but severe storms damaged ships that were so very close.

NCDXF’s primary purpose is to help fund well-organized DXpeditions to desirable DXCC entities like Bouvet Island.  During the last 49 years, NCDXF has granted nearly $1.3 million to hundreds of DXpeditions – helping to put an “all-time-new-one” (ATNO) in the log and make DX happen for thousands of DXers worldwide.  The credit for these large grants goes to the NCDXF contributors, individuals and clubs who support the DX community.  Without those contributions, DXpeditions to entities like Bouvet or other desirable locations would not be possible.

If you agree with the importance of NCDXF’s work, and if you are not a current contributor, we hope you will become one today by going to   Your contribution will continue to help make DX happen.  You can also support future DXpeditions by including the NCDXF Cycle 25 Fund in your estate plan.

We wish the Intrepid DX Group a safe and very successful trip to Bouvet Island.
