Mike, GM0HCQ is now back on board the RRS James Clark Ross following a crew change today. The ship is now preparing to head south, initially to open the summer only base at Signy Island (part of the South Orkney Island group). This will be followed by a science cruise across the Drake Passage and then a run south into Antarctica and the first call of the season to Rothera Base, located on Adelaide Island.

There will be no radio activity from Signy Island, however a short period of operating may occur at the end of the month from Rothera Base.

*A reminder that VP8DPJ is the Communications Manager on Rothera Research Station, Adelaide Island, AN-001, British Antarctic Territory.
