Hi, everyone. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and any other holidays
you may celebrate!
Things are going well down here, and I'm glad to have worked some of
you on the air. I apologize for any weak signals, but there has been
a lot of space weather activity recently and the station here is
Each year, the residents of McMurdo Station, Antarctica celebrate
Christmas by singing Christmas Carols to the remote, Antarctic field
camps on the HF radio. This year, we are asking ham radio operators
around the world to listen in and e-mail short wave listening reports
telling us how far away the carols are heard. Listen on 7995 kHz USB
on 24 December 2014 2300z (December 25 1200 New Zealand Time) and
e-mail reports to email@example.com
For a Christmas in Antarctica SWL QSL card, please send an SASE to my
Blacksburg address. Special cards will be made for this event.
Please share this information with as many hams as possible. It would
be really interesting to know how far we are heard. I believe we will
be running about 1000 W for this.
