According to mission coordinator Ralph (K0IR), the expedionary vessel passed through the Straights of Magellan without incident, other than a bit of seasickness.  During the long voyage to Bouvet Island near Antarctica, the DXpedition Team will be operating maritime mobile:

“We have one maritime mobile station active, with most of our QSOs on 20 and 40m. We are running 100 watts to a Hustler vertical on the bow of the ship and an OCF dipole hung from the bridge area. Our transmissions include grid square information. We hope to add a second station, soon.”
