It looks like the team is now meeting in Punta Arenas. Next stop? King George Island in the South Shetlands. Their itinerary says they will leave on or around January 13 – in 3 days, so I imagine last preparations will be made. I would imagine all of the team must get to Punta Arenas and then they leave for King George together.
In a couple of days we should see 3G9A/MM on the air during their long voyage to Bouvet. It takes about as long to get to Bouvet as VK0EK took to go from Cape Town to Heard Island.
