KC4AAA to be Active from South Pole Station

01/08/2014

Joe Musachia, W5FJG, a telecommunications technician and trainer, has been assigned to the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station and will be operating from KC4AAA, the Amateur Radio station there. The station offers a kilowatt into 6 element 20 and 3 element 40 meter monobanders fixed on the US and a tribander fixed toward Europe. He reports that KC4AAA does not have the ability to operate CW as it’s currently configured, so he will operate SSB only on weekdays and some weekends, through the winter season, until November 2014. He also hopes to have a 3 element 17 meter beam aimed at North America, that is supposed to go up this month. Listen for KC4AAA with W5FJG at the helm on or near 14.243 MHz. Almost all activity is currently on 20 meters. QSL to Larry Skilton, K1IED. — Thanks to The Daily DX
