Marco , IK5SQX-DK5SQX has just informed that he’s still at Hobart waiting to fly to the coastal Casey Base, WAP AUS-Ø2 (picture aside) and from there, with a Basler plane to Concordia, but all depends on the weather; scheduling are updated every 16 hours so everyone can imagine how the weather condition can modify the plans.
Hobart is currently the home airport for the AAD intercontinental Antarctic air link service
The previewed trip with the I/B Astrolabe to Base Prud’Homme was cancelled due to some tech issues of the Icebreaker , so the program has been rescheduled and changed. On the changing program, all of its baggage has been lost and last night he was at Australian Antarctic Division (AAD) to find something to dress.
Marco will inform when he will reach Concordia (WAP MNB-Ø3) and when he will be be ready to operate from there; callsign will not be IAØDC but probably IAØ/DK6SQX or IAØ/IK5SQX.
That’s all for the moment, stay tuned and turn the antenna to the South
