Dome C Summer Camp is now entering on WAP-WADA Antarctic Directory as WAP MNB- 14
Following the operation by David Brunet F4FKT who did sign FT4YM/p (November & Dicember 2021 and January 2022), at Dome C-Summer Camp 75° 05’ 59” South, 123° 19’ 56” East, a new WAP reference has been issued.
The picture aside , taken recently by the helicopter, shows both sites (Dome C Summer Camp to the left and Concordia Station to the right). The two sites have really 2 official names and are separated each other by a land strip.
Dome C summer Camp (75°05’59” South, 123°19’ 56” East), is a large camp, detached by about 700/800 mts from Concordia Station. This was the original site of the first Epica project then, it was the support base for the workers who built Concordia Station.
Dome C Smmer camp was never dismantled and actually is used as a depot with housing and warehouse. All the scientific equipments are inside the towers of Concordia and inside the shelters scattered around the Base.
Note that, last Hams allowed to operate Ham Radio from inside Concordia Station (WAP MNB-Ø3) were Paride Legovini IAØ/IZ3SUS (year 2014) and Marco de Pas (IK5SQX-DK5SQX) signing IAØ/DK5SQX (year 2019).
