FLASH NEWS – Mike VP8SGK says:
“I have about a two hour window to get ashore and operate and am heading for the base now, at 1716z. All being well I will be QRV from about 1745, will probably start on 15m if the antenna loads, if not then on 17m. I won’t be taking my keyer as too fiddly for a short session so it will be SSB only”.

November 20, 2012 – VP8SGK was QRV from South Georgia at 17:35z, working 10, 17 and 20m SSB. He went QRT at 18:55z.
The JCR is now at King Edward Point, South Georgia, but is at anchor, which makes getting ashore more difficult. I will try to get to the base for 16/17Z. If the ship does arrive at 12z then I am likely to have work to carry out for most of the morning and part of the afternoon. I do have to visit the base to look over the radio equipment and once I have done this I would hope to be able to operate as VP8SGK. I anticipate this to be after 17 or 18z. [more]
