Concordia Station WAP MNB-Ø3- Up date by Marco IAØ/DK5SQX

-Professionally speaking, all fine here at Concordia- says Marco IAØ/DK5SQX –Our LIDAR instrument (Optical Radar used to make high-resolution maps, with applications in geodesy, geomagnetics, geography, geology and many other fields), works well and produce excellent results-.

On the radio wise, I will try to rip of some days to make few QSOs , also because the worldwide request is high. The main problem is that the Radio room is the center of the  Base operations,  and I can’t use it during the Base time work. In addition I must be followed by one of the radio room responsible and not only that is available to make some extra time watching me when I call CQ, particularly at night time!

I will try hard … but I’m  doubtful!

At the end of next week I will leave  Concordia to return back in Australia  with the French Icebreaker. I will stop for a while (one week) at Dumond D’Urville (WAP FRA-Ø1) and from there , sailing to Hobart  with  five navigation days.

I don’t know if the French Leader at DDU will allow me to operate, but for sure, I will ask.
