The Radio Club Argentino (RCA) proudly announces to all radioamateurs that it will be operating from Carlini Base, South Shetland Islands (AN-010), during February.
Our goal is to make as many contacts as possible with all hams worldwide.
Departure is scheduled on February 14th from the city of Río Gallegos, in the province of Santa Cruz, in a two-step travel that will begin on an Argentinian Air Force flight to 25 de Mayo Island (a.k.a. King George Is.) and will continue by sea to Carlini Base.
Activity will start next day and will last until early March, with two HF stations covering 80m to 10m SSB and CW.
A third rig will be in standby mode for band openings in 6m. Operators will be Marcelo LU1AET and Carlos LU1BCE.
