3Y0J update QRT expected today due to difficulties.


The team have been reporting to Dx news by satellite radio Link above where you  can watch videos of the expedition and see some of the difficulties they have encountered.

Landing Zodiacs on the shore of the island has been impossible due to the glacier, the team and all the equipment has to enter the water at a buoy 500 ft from the shore connected to the shore with a rope,the team wear survival suits, equipment in water tight drums, all has to be pulled ashore and carried 800 ft to the camp. Very difficult.

The transport to the Falkland Islands was by RAF transport and they are supported by worldwide amateur radio clubs including the RSGB 

It is estimated 10,000 amateurs per day will be attempting QSO’s so dust off your kw amps. Hi Hi
