Oleg Sakharov RI1ANX (aka ZS1ANF, UA1PBA) is actually on board of M/V Agulhas-II heading to Cape Town after yesterday’s visit of South Georgia Island; Oleg will reach Cape Town next March 15th.
WAP is in contact with Oleg who has sent us pictures and details of the activity from the “Traverse Stop Point –Temporary Field Camp” from where Oleg RI1ANX did operate from 1 through 7 January 20019.

“Traverse Stop Point-Temporary Field Camp” has been the site where, a Multinational Team did stay for 8 days , sleeping inside the CAT and in the tents on the sledge. The Camp was set up to allow (after building a provisional Skyway) the receiving of supplies for people and vehicles. The Communication site was performed to keep connection with BT-67 aircraft and on the free time, to make contacts on the Ham bands.
At the light of the evidence provided by Oleg Sakharov RI1ANX (aka ZS1ANF-UA1PBA) and to the 77 QSOs made from there.
Traverse Stop Point-Temporary Field Camp located at 78°01’45” South, 12°52’35” East on Queen Maud Land (aka. Dronning Maud Land) has been referenced as WAP MNB-13
Thanks Oleg RI1ANX for the efforts made, and thanks to have given the Ham’s Antarctic Chasers another brand “NEW ONE”.
