Richard G3CWI of SOTABeams interviewed on QSO Today

I though this might be of interest

Richard Newstead, G3CWI, is the QSO Today guest on Eric Guth’s latest Podcast where his company, Sotabeams, is the podcasts new commercial sponsor. You will hear in this episode. Richard did not like to be tied to a desk after his engineering studies and decided to sign-up with the British Antarctic Survey. He found himself in Antarctica just as Argentina invaded the Falkland Islands, leading to the short war between Britain and Argentina. This is just the tip of the “iceberg” of G3CWI’s story!

Both QSO partners showing their age here - I’d have just started 3rd year at school.

Is that a potential SOTA summit in the background, or is the air so clear down Antarctica way that you get a good view of Egypt?

And I did it on Top Band! :smiley:

Thanks for the QSL, Richard. (via G3ZAY)
