Jan Mayen DXpedition

The JX5O DXpedition crew is in route and you can view their progress and latest news here and on The Facebook.  I’ve often thought a DXpedition to Jan Mayen or Svlabard would be cool, quite literally.  They’re not super rare like Bouvet or Heard Island, but for mere mortal radio artisans like me who can’t take three months off work and drop $30K or 40K of life savings on playing radio, they’re attainable DXpeditions.  Sure, they’re not tropical like the popular VP prefix destinations, but that would be too easy :-)
