Antarctica on the Air!

KC4AAA at the US Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station has been heard recently on 40 meters (SSB) at around 0650 UTC. QSL Manager Larry Skilton, K1IED, reports that QSL cards for recent activity (December 2016 through January 2017) should go out in March. KC4AAA plans to be on LoTW with logs from 2013 to the present. Skilton reports that KC4AAA was not on the air very often during 2016.

The KC4USV station at McMurdo Station has been off the air for 2 years, and the antennas are down. KC4USV is on LoTW.
