Hi KC4IAI,

Interesting comments, especially following on the heels of Bob Propst (widely credited as the invetor of the cubical) recently lamenting on what it has become.

It in unlcear to me, however, how the “Subliminal Distraction” you describe applies to Antarctic stations. Sorry I can’t give you a contact, but I would be interested to know why you think they are connected. My experience has been that the so-called mental breaks are uncommon, and often overblown by rumors, the media, and/or history. Frictions between station personnel, while common, are easily attributed to petty power squabbles, sexual tension, or generally inconsiderate behavior. In other words, the same stuff you’d find anywhere else.
