Update received 16th Dec. at 15:00 GMT. Marco is in Antarctica now, but he still stands at Casey Base (WAP AUS-Ø2). The Basler plane that should have taken him to Concordia, couldn’t fly due to adverse weather conditions and strong wind in the area.
In the meantime, while waiting for better weather to fly, Marco (who sent us some pics of Casey) will ask permission to operate the Radio equipment at the Base; he said: -I noticed inverted Vee antennas in a kind of remote Camp little far away the Base- .
Trying IK5SQX/VKØ should be a great opportunity … he will try to do his best and for sure the Hamradio world will be grateful to the Base expedition leader if Marco will be allowed to use the equipment and be on air even for a short time.
More info to follow.
TNX IK5SQX actually at the Australian Casey Base, Antarctica
