Paride, IZ3SUS is currently active from Concordia Dome “C”, a French-Italian Multinational Base on the Antarctic Plateau.

If you check on under IZ3SUS, Paride has put some pics of antenna and Radio room at Concordia Station. His RTX is a Rhode & Schwartz XK2100L, 150 W HF transceiver with a frequency range of 1.5 MHz to 30 MHz operated remotely via an integrated multi standard serial interface, managed from the Radio room.

Paride has registered an IRC channel on Freenode so that is now possible to chat with him when he is available even at the Radio Room or when working. To get connected you just have to follow a simple procedure:

1) Go to
2) Select a nickname (suggested to use your callsign) and type it in the window
3) On “Channel” site type: ##antarctica (with two ##)
4) Insert the security code and click on “Connect “

Now you are online and can type your message in the line at the bottom of the page. When Paride is on (his id is “pl”), you can chat, talk about skeds, just say hello or whatsoever else.

QSL manager Gianni I1HYW has just received a package with cards. This coming week he will start to answer the requests received so far. QSLs donated by F8DHE have been printed by LZ3HI Gold Print Service.
