8P9PS – Antarctic Peninsula

    • By Roger 8P9PS/AC9Y

    I will be operating as 8P9PS from January 26th through February 8th 2011 from the MV Polar Star near the Antarctic Peninsula.  I do not know what the daily schedule will be at the moment.  However, I expect to operate on 20m mostly and after 2300Z.

    My gear will be an Icom IC-7000 and High Sierra Sidekick mounted on an outdoor hand rail.  Depending on weather and the ship’s schedule, I hope to be on the air near daily.

    Why a Barbadian call sign?  The MV Polar Star is registered in Barbados.
