DP1POL & DP0GVN – Antarctica


Felix, DL5XL will once again be on the air signing DP1POL from Neumayer Station III, Antarctia (Grid Locator IB59UH), between November 2015 and February 2016.

As usual, the main mode will be CW on all HF bands, with a little activity in digimodes and maybe phone, as well. QSL via DL1ZBO or LotW.

There will also be a ham radio operator on the station’s next wintering team: Marcus, DL1MH, expects to use the callsign DP0GVN of HF, mainly in SSB, from December 2015 to February 2017.

QSL cards for this operation can be requested from DL5EBE.

Charles M0OXO

I was born in the 1960’s and have lived all my life in the Coal Mining Town of Barnsley in South Yorkshire, Northern England. My parents were all from this area of Yorkshire and my father worked in the main Industry of the local Collieries as a face worker. I have been married to my wife Debbie for 35+ years and we have two children and two grandchildren.

I have been licensed for around 20 years after my interest was re-kindled when I retired from my role as a Police Officer within South Yorkshire Police Force. The latter few years were spent as Radio Operator in the Force Operations Control Room at Sheffield, before my career ended.

IOTA chasing is (and always has been) my real passion, as climbing the ladder to reach Honour Roll status was always my main aim. The 1000 Islands Trophy is still out of reach but I am heading in the right direction. I am currently a Board Member of IOTA Ltd and IREF.

In my free time I am a keen Photographer of Wildlife, Aviation, (anything really) but the QSL Manager role is my main passion within Ham Radio.
