The Atka Bay Skiway site (70°36’45” S, 8°07’25” W) is the location of the Emperor Penguin colony. The Camp, managed by White Desert Company lies not too far away to the structure of German Research Station Neumayer III (70°40´S, 8°16´W), and stands right between Neumayer III (WAP DEU-Ø8) and Neumayer Emergency Base (WAP ZAF-11).
Picture of Atka Bay Skiway Camp, was taken last Jan.8th by Matthias DH5CW, on the way to Neumayer Emergency Base, aka South Africa Summer support Base (WAP ZAF-11), together with Felix DL5XL. Apart from the tents, there is a marked skiway for airplanes. Looking very closely, Neumayer Station III in the background (just over the left yellow tent) can be seen.
