Danilo Collino IZ1KHY (pic aside) will be involved in Antarctica till the end of February 2019, following several scientific missions and research projects, including remote camps.
Lt. Danilo Collino is an expert Mountain Scout of the Italian Army and this is his second mission in Antarctica where he was wintering over in the year 2004 operating as IØQHM/KC4 from Mario Zucchelli Station (WAP ITA-Ø1).
This season, Danilo will stay for a week (maybe more) in few remote camps and in each of the following Bases:
MZS-Mario Zucchelli Station (WAP ITA/Ø1)
Scott Base (WAP NZL-Ø1)
McMurdo Station (WAP USA-22)
Jang Bogo Station (WAP KOR-Ø2)
Concordia Station (WAP MNB-Ø3) (pic above Lt. Danilo Collino IZ1KHY operating from Sitry Camp – Antarctica)
Of course, he will need permission to operate Ham radio frequencies from the foreign Bases, by using the Station’s equipment (Antennas & RTX); let’s hope he will succeed and in this case the call could be IAØ/IZ1KHY from the Italians sites and eventually KC4/IZ1KHY, ZL5/IZ1KHY, HL8/IZ1KHY. At Concordia Station he will also use IAØ/IZ1KHY. On remote camps he will try to set some dipoles and be active SSB only (power 50-100W) as KC4/IZ1KHY/P.
More information to follow in due course.
