Shirreff Base (official name Cape Shirreff Field Station),is located at 62°28’12” South, 60°46’16” West, on the East side of Cape Shirreff on Joannes Paulus II Peninsula on Livingston Island of the South Shetlands. It’s a seasonal field station operated by the United States, opened in 1996 .
Every austral summer, the US AMLR Program conducts predator studies at Cape Shirreff field Station.
Each week, the field research team sends updates on their work.
Shirreff Field Station WAP USA-NEW and the nearby Chilean Base called Refuge Dr. Guillermo Mann, WAP CHL-NEW are few meters each other and so far no Ham radio operators have been active from there. It’s a real shame, particularly if considering that both locations are visited yearly and an operation from there could qualify both references!
When someone be active from there?
