Seba SQ1SGB has confirmed that his 3rd season at Halley VI Research Base (WAP GBR-4Ø) is coming. Seba wants to prepare himself to this season and he’s looking for some light Digital converter fitting to his FT857 RTX, to be on Digi other than the usual SSB. He has finally got permission (after 3 years) to use the station’s antenna, which he had already used for a short time last year. With that large multiband, the signal will certainly perform better, as no amplifier is allowed down there! Seba said that probably he can apply for VPØHAL, if not VP8/SQ1SGB. [SOURCE]
