Uruguay is one of the Countries that mark a great presence in Antarctica with 2 scientific Research Bases: Gen. José Artigas (WAP URY-ØØ1) and Teniente de Navio Ruperto Elichiribehety (WAP URY-NEW) Stations.
In the past (from 1987 through 2005) Artigas Base was frequently active on HF with quite a few calls. One of those was CXØXY. Since 2005 nobody else has been on air from there.
We hope some day in the next Antarctic Sesons, pne of the researchers can activate Artigas Base again and maybe also, Teniente de Navio Ruperto Elichiribehety Stations which has never been activated!
For now, we congratulate Carlos Andrés Molina Vera, CX8ABF for his efforts and we thank the Telecommunications Administration of Uruguay (URSEC) for its domonstrated sesitivity in joining the 6Øth Anniversary event.
CW6ØATS WAP-336 is on air. QSL will be confirmed through Eqsl Lotw, Clublog.
