CTARC Heard Island is QRV - 23 Mar '16

The DXpedition to Heard Island near Antarctica is now on air.

The team on the Braveheart spotted land at around 10h30z on 22 March. That afternoon they set anchor in Atlas Cove and did a recconnaisance of the area for safe access for the ATV that will tow the crates of equipment to the base camp site.

The following day (23 March) the unloading of equipment and antenna erection began. It is going to be a very busy three weeks ahead!
