Listen to Christmas in Antarctica by Dan KB6NU
“Hi, everyone. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and any other holidays you may celebrate!
Things are going well down here, and I’m glad to have worked some of you on the air. I apologize for any weak signals, but there has been a lot of space weather activity recently and the station here is rather modest.
Each year, the residents of McMurdo Station, Antarctica celebrate Christmas by singing Christmas Carols to the remote, Antarctic field camps on the HF radio. This year, we are asking ham radio operators around the world to listen in and e-mail short wave listening reports telling us how far away the carols are heard. Listen on 7995 kHz USB on 24 December 2014 2300z (December 25 1200 New Zealand Time) and e-mail reports to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For a Christmas in Antarctica SWL QSL card, please send an SASE to my Blacksburg address. Special cards will be made for this event.
Please share this information with as many hams as possible. It would be really interesting to know how far we are heard. I believe we will be running about 1000 W for this.
73, Nathaniel, KC4/W2NAF”
