This is a rare photo of LU3ZY South Sandwich in 1981. The operator was Lt. Carlos Pereyra who was the chief of the Corbeta Uruguay scientific station. His comments about the base were, “The photograph of the base is taken from Mount Larsen at 200 meters on Morrell Island. The peninsula where the station is located as 1200m long by 600m wide. The rock in the water is “Twitcher“. Beyond that is Cook Island”. Note: Morrell is an alternate name for Thule Island. The towers supported a rhombic antenna aimed towards Argentina.
