Gene Spinelli K5GS (pic aside: Left-Gene K5GS, Right-Steve W1SRD) did respond to the question we put him about next planned South Orkney Expedition. We recall him that: –The 3 locations: Cummings Hut, Foca Hut and Gourlay Huts (see the article of 18 march 2019 here on the page of WAP website) have never been put on the air, so the interest could be higher at least among the Antarctic Hunters if you eventually can activate one or more of them!-
Gene said: –We will have a look at them and determine if any can be used. The skipper of Braveheart has been to South Orkney and is familiar with the location used by VP8ORK in 2011… Distance from the beach is important, we have to carry everything we bring ashore-
Gene Spinelli K5GS will be at Friedrichshafen (next June 21-23), I’m sure some of the Antarctic Chaser friends will meet him and come back with some fresh information! Let’s keep our finger crossed !
