hello,im looking to see if there is any chance that kc4aaa will have any psk31 ops.reason is i belong to the psk31 070 club which sponsors various awards. one if which is a fun one called golf. they divided the earth into 18 equal golf holes. also they allow the exact north pole and south pole stations to be used for any northern or southern qso …golf hole 13 is the bugger. it goes from 120 – 180 west and 30 to 90 south. there isnt any islands or countries there and no antarctic stations either (i did work r1ant for the other hard hole). so is there a chance for a kc4aaa contact on psk31 to finish the hole (i have 17 completed).thankshere is the award page if you want to see what this crazy message is about.<ǃ-- m -->http://home.insightbb.com/~ctrice/golf.html<ǃ-- m -->June 14, 2009 at 6:59 am #9516
hi w7psk,mmmmm. i do not have a ham license but have dabbled a bit under the kc4aac umbrella. i was at the pole recently, and while there were a couple operators there during the [austral] summer i donʹt know who — if anyone — is operating there there now. the next turnover of personnel will be in november.i know this is almost no help at all, but i thought youʹd like to know that someone has read your message and given it some thought.cheers,glennJune 14, 2009 at 6:59 am #9517
thanks glen, i appreciate the reply. i know that couple 3 years ago someone did psk31 from there as we had 1 gent that contacted them.oh well,i had dreams of going winter over but as an ae in the navy i could never get an assignement … and working in boeing i doubt i could get something there.being 53 i think my time is running out to see antarctica in person.June 14, 2009 at 6:59 am #9518
hi rick,i just found this article about an amateur “field day” at the three us antarctic stations this winter: http://www.arrl.org/ʔartid=7536 …so somebody is thereǃas far as working for boeing and being 53, why should that stop youʔ thereʹs people in their 50ʹs and 60ʹs working there. i worked for hughes until i started in the antarctic. now i live in port townsend and, gawd help me, iʹll probably still be working on the ice in my 50ʹs (which is only a few years away now). <ǃ-- s:mrgreen: --><ǃ-- s:mrgreen: --> glenn
