AN-016; Various, Antarctica: A group of Italian scientists sets out for Concordia station in mid-December. Marco/IK5SQX/DK5SQX and Nicola/IZ7ZNZ are part of the group. Marco begins his journey on Dec. 30 with the new French icebreaker L'Astrolabe, sailing from Hobart (Tasmania) and expects to reach Dumont D'Urville (WAP FRA-01) on January 5.
From there travels on to Cape Prud'Homme (WAP MNB-NEW) and hopes to activate this location as weather condition permit for as long as possible. Afterwards, he continues to Concordia (WAP MNB-03), which Nicola will reach by plane. They plan to get on the air as soon as possible, research work will take precedence though.
