Dear Friends,

From February 2014 to November 2014 I'll be operating from Concordia research station, in Antarctica, where I'll overwinter. From Wikipedia:

Concordia Research Station, which opened in 2005, is a research facility that was built 3233m above sea level at a location called Dome C on the Antarctic Plateau, Antarctica. It is located 1,100km inland from the French research station at Dumont D'Urville, 1100km inland from Australia's Casey Station and 1200km inland from the Italian Zucchelli Station at Terra Nova Bay. Russia's Vostok Station is 560km away. The Geographic South Pole is 1670km away.

Concordia Station is the third permanent, all-year research station on the Antarctic Plateau besides Vostok Station (Russian) and the Amundsen-Scott Station (USA) at the Geographic South Pole. It is jointly operated by scientists from France and Italy.

The call sign I'll use is: IA/IZ3SUS. Some data about the station:

Local time: UTC+8
WAP reference: MNB-03 (Multi National Base)

I'll operate every Friday between 17:00 and 18:00 UTC, working at 14333kHz (no split unless specified, check the cluster).

Gianni I1HYW will be my QSL manager during my stay in Antarctica.

The HF antenna. An second (identical) one is available in case of problems with this one.


The HF shelter, near the antennas, half buried in snow.


Inside the HF shelter there's the transceiver (R&S XK2100L, RF power: 150W).


The Radio Room, inside the station. The HF transceiver is remotely controlled from here.


That's me.
