There is still a big demand of contact with Polar Ships and even if some have been worked recently there are other hard to get!
It’s the case of RRS Sir David Attenborough a brand “New One” for many Hams WW!
According to the information in the webpage of Mike Gloistein GMØHCQ, it seems there are some possibility he can be active before too long.
Here is the spot : “ I am due back on board the RRS Sir David Attenborough in late March 2023, completing the end of the 22/23 Antarctic season with visits to Bird Island, South Georgia and Rothera, then bringing the ship north to the UK arriving 30th May.
Radio operation is still proving difficult and I did not manage to make any contacts on the passage south. Depending on workload I will try to get something working when next on board (March to June 2023).”
After having left anchor at the Falklands, actually the ship tracker shows the Icebreaker half way from VP8 (Falklands) and the Antarctic Peninsula, heading South.
While looking forward to put GMØHCQ/MM on the log, WAP wish Mike a safe sail.
