Thanks for all your support….

next operation…..


TBA in The ??? Antarctic Activity Week (AAW)

Thinking on how to improve  the Worldwide interest around Antarctic Continent and its related matters, WAP (World Antarctic Programme) was born.

What to do to achieve better results? The idea to launch an Antarctica Week Activity began to be celebrated every year on TM8ANTthe last week of February, and in any case the week should incorporate  the 22nd of February, where the Argentines are celebrating the  ‘Dia de la Antartida Argentina’ (Argentine’s Antarctica Day).

This invitation IS open to all Radio Amateurs around the world, to the Clubs and Organizations who would like to join us, and share with us this initiative.

Lets me try to explain further….We are looking for Special Prefixes promoting Antarctica such as for example GB0ANT, IR8ANT, IR2ANT, TM…ANT, DL…ANT, UA2004ANT, ZX…ANT,  KK…ANT, VK….ANT, VX…ANT  and so on. In other words, a kind of Special  Prefix from each Country with the suffix ANT.

Stations from Antarctica can join us and working as many Hams as possible.  Club stations of the Antarctic Institutes, as well as Antarctic Organizations (such as LU2CN Servicio Auxiliar de la Armada who care the

Antarctic matters in Argentina, or IY0A in Italy, or any eventual other of such stations), can join the Antarctica Activity Week. Again our intention is to draw your attention on The Antarctic Continent, to understand what the Nations are doing to protect this corner of the world still non contaminated, to share a message of peace among the World.

Antarctic Activity Week coming soon…….

The 10th AAW is set to arrive pretty soon with dates scheduled for the event between 18th February to 26th February 2013. UE6ANTThe event this Years is set to be as good if not better than previous Years with many more stations advising the team of their intended participation. WAP (World Antarctic Programme) is the main body that coordinates all activity as well as being the focus of attention as regards the Awards program.

The only UK station to participate is ‘GBØANT’ in ‘WAP-Ø72’ and this station will next be qrv during the 2012 Antarctic Activity Week on SSB, CW and Digital Modes.

More information on the initiative can be found on the WAP website at .
